Signs of spring!

We've been having some nice warm and sunny weather mixed with a day or two of cold and rain.  When possible, we have been making the most of the warm days and getting outside which got me to thinking about the signs of spring in our yard.

It's time to get the garden planned (even though I hope we're moved before harvest time) and get the seeds planted so we have nice little plants for the garden in a few weeks.

"This smells interesting"

Breeze did a great job of knocking over the pots, sticking her nose in the various seeds and into the bag of potting soil.


"What is all this doing here?"

Bill wandered over to see what was going on and then Forest seemed to appoint himself guardian of the seeds.


"Don't nobody touch these seeds!"

Other signs of spring are the pack hanging out under their fort.

Breeze: "Come out, come out wherever you are!"

Also on top of the fort.


Hiker and Azule are still on the hunt for the elusive critters and are now concentrating their efforts near the shed.



We know that it is officially spring when when we see this:


Only on warm spring (and later, hot summer) days does Hiker lay on the cement by the side door. For me, this is what got me thinking that spring has really arrived.

  1. We think spring it definitely there, too. Love all the pups inspecting the garden things. At least they'll keep little critters away so they can grow.

    1. I am still surprised that we get critters with the dogs around. Maybe our yard is just that great!

    1. We all agree that it is time for spring, although Mother Nature gave us flurries last night and again this evening. Sigh.

  3. Dogs just looove helping out with the gardening. You've got a great crew of laborers there and I am certain you will have a gorgeous garden to show for it.

    1. I think that the pack is most excited about the squash seeds I planted, they love squash!

    1. Should be....but when they are all around, it's more like, "get outta the dirt", "watch", "move will ya" and all that!

  5. First signs of spring and then it snows. Oh Canada. Hiker looks cozy in the sun though. I hope it comes back soon!

  6. The signs of spring look very encouraging! Your clan needs a picture lined up wearing bandanas in front of a garden :)
