A Day of Flowers, Robins, and Snow

Hello everyone. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your diligent doggie investigative reporter 
Chester L. W. Spaniel. 

Today I got a chance to look around in the front yard. 

I actually found some flowers that were blooming despite the cold windy weather. My ghostwriter said it was snowing real hard when she was driving home last night after work. It all melted when it hit the ground. Today it was snowing on and off too! But we have flowers!!!

There were plants growing everywhere I looked!

Check out this little sweet woodruff coming up through a hole in the wood.


In other news, we suspected there was a bird nest somewhere in the yew bushes in front of our living room windows. Here it is!

The mother robin, Lady Ruby Star-Feathersworth, was sitting on the nest. She practically exploded out of the bush when we got too close!

She flew up to the edge of the roof and screamed at us until we left. Hopefully we'll be able to get photos of the babies over the next few weeks if we're real careful.

Later, Dad rolled the grill out of the garage and cooked some steaks. Yum!

 Soon after that, it clouded up …

… and it started snowing again!

Here's one of our last photos before it got dark:

I wonder if it will melt by morning?

We'll just have to wait and see. Stay tuned to The Daily Bone.

10:15pm. We interrupt your regularly scheduled program to bring you this important update. It  finally stopped snowing. As you can see, there is snow on the grass and tree.

Will it still be there in the morning? Only time will tell! We now return you to your regularly scheduled program.

  5. You sure have lots of pretty flowers. What a great find of the Robin's nest. We hope to see the little ones someday. This sure is a crazy weather week around here.

  6. You have some very pretty spring flowers in bloom. We had hyacinths blooming a couple of weeks ago, but the cold and rain got to them. They didn't last long enough for Mom to enjoy that sweet smell.

    Baby robins!!! We can't wait to see.
