Kickoff of Spring

This past week was the first day of Spring. Hurray! While much of the country is still suffering from cold weather, snow, and the like, we are getting flowers, blooming trees and breaks of sunshine. I visited the Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden in SE Portland over the weekend to take in the foliage and fresh air. While there were some early bloomers, I will have return once the rhodys are in full swing ;)

Being Watched

Have you ever had the feeling you were being watched? I'm sure this guy did. Spotting this guy crossing the front porch at my moms house was another sure sign that spring is here.

For the most part, snails get a pretty bad rap. They are slimy, yucky creatures that terrorize gardens. But I find them to be much more tolerable than their no shelled counterpart, the nasty slug. **shudder**

Plus, they always remind me of the Racing Snail from The Neverending Story. ;)
