Spring Is Coming Early

By
Today’s theme for Six Word Friday is “bare”, which is a good way to describe this unusually mild winter in central Virginia:
Bare trees no more, spring comes.

Last year was snowy and icy for most of the winter.  One of my Nancyism’s – that’s true even here in Virginia – is that spring doesn’t come until I see robins shivering in the snow.  There’s always one last snow after the robins come back.

I don’t know if that’s going to happen this year.  The maple is leafing out already, nearly two months ahead of schedule.

Even my favorite oak tree is in bud!  That is so wrong.  It’s not the last one to bud; the oak willow is always last and it’s not in bud yet.  I expect it will be any day now.

This weather is just weird and I’m not sure I like it.  Not much I can about it though.  It is what it is

A Daily Life has a new post on using HTML to create extra blank lines in your posts.  Additionally, the post on embedding a YouTube video was edited and updated for some experimentation I did after it was published.

Have a good weekend!  I think my favorite boy toy and I will be off wandering.  We’ve been home just a little too much the last few weeks and are both itching to get in the car and just drive.  Hopefully I’ll have some good pictures and stories to tell next week.
