Spring Photo Update

Just a quick post of a few photos I took on Friday, showing that spring is indeed coming to Maine!
Believe it or not, this is what our new outside thermometer showed on Friday afternoon around 3:20. It's on the west side of the house, so possibly sun was shining on it in some way that distorted the reading. The computer said it was 65 at the same time, but it felt closer to 80 to me and Rusty.
Here is how blue the sky is a lot of the time these days. (The computer also said it was "partly cloudy," I don't know where they get their readings.)
Remember a while back I posted a photo of some green shoots with a plastic cake box next to them? Well, the cake box is gone and here is how the green shoots are doing -- there will be flowers soon! There are actual daffodils blooming elsewhere in town now, and even a few varieties of tulips. Ours are still just green leaves but we now have faith that they will bloom in time. They just aren't in as sunny or sheltered a location.
Now it's time to get ready for church. No boots needed!
