Hope Springs Eternal

So, is anyone else soooo ready for spring?  Take a look at these photos from Feb. 27 looking out at our back yard...

This was during a 15-minute white out...the deer seemed unfazed by it all--kept eating away while the snow piled up on their backs.

And maybe you remember this post from earlier in February?
Well, this is what I saw when I looked out my back window today.


The deer are coming out more now that there is actually some grass showing.  We have been seeing anywhere from 4 to 20 morning and evening.

 Yesterday, it was sunny and warmer, about 50 degrees, so my 2-yr-old granddaughter and I were outside for a walk and decided to make this--using sand shovels and a sand bucket.  Not the most conventional-looking snowman but we had fun.

 Hopefully he doesn't stick around too long.  :)
