Well, "almost" fearless. Lady, who has protected me from all sorts of potential dangers like the mailman, babies in strollers, and helicopters (yes, helicopters), is afraid of wind. March must be trying to come in like a lion as is generally expected, because it's been very blustery lately. When the wind picks up, Lady becomes a Velcro dog. I got dressed and dried my hair yesterday with a 90 pound dog trying to position herself on a 21 x 34 inch bathmat around my feet. Despite several valiant attempts, she was unsuccessful, so she settled for half in and half out of the bathroom.
Scary wind notwithstanding, we are looking forward to spring. This crocus poked its head out from underneath the covers this week. The vivid purple petals are a gloriously stark contrast against the bed of dried leaves and coneflower seed heads. Is it any wonder the birds are already singing their spring songs?
