But there are signs of life. Take, for example, my dear friend St. Franky, who lives under a tree in our front yard. Here's what Franky looks like now:
In contrast, here's what he looked like two weeks ago:
So, PROGRESS! We've been joking that Frankie wasn't actually under that pile of snow all winter. Our theory is he ran away to Florida with a saucy lawn gnome. But even if he did, it's good to see the big guy back.
Now, if we could only see the rest of him! I am so sick of this horrible boring white stuff! REAL spring cannot come fast enough, in my opinion. I want St. Franky surounded by a field of verdant foliage and STAT! Come the true spring, he'll have no need to run away with saucy lawn gnomes. They'll want to come visit him!
Happy first day of spring, you all.
