Hello Sunshine

The sun returned today.
A balmy 70 degrees worth of the stuff, bathing our winter souls in some much needed warmth.
I tidied the potting shed, and pottered around in the garden, the warmth on my face felt exhilarating.
There are new plant shoots poking out of the soil, I trust they know that winter is not yet over.
The Saucer Magnolia trees are in bloom......in early February !
Oliver snoozed.

Jo, I am hoping our trees and plants do not bud out too soon. Last year the neighbor's apple blossoms got frost bitten and he did not have many apples in the summer. Cat sure know how to nap. :) Blessings to you, enjoy the warm temps. xoxo, Susie

He is absolutely gorgeous. I love it when you post his pictures, he makes me smile. Well it's not quite spring here yet, another month I think. Still as long as there's no snow I'm happy.

Give a cat a spot of sunshine to nap in and you have a Happy cat ..
I am South of you and it is grey and dreary but I kind of like it, you appreciate sunshine more when you don't have it every single day of the year :)

Hey Jo. We are still having warm days here too and I can't make myself stay inside. The sun feels so good. I have spent this entire day cleaning the bunny cages.

Oh, and I meant to say how very sweet Oliver looks. I would love to hold him.
