Yep. Even unwired enough to sniff the flowers. How's your Spring doin' everybloggie?


Gail in Aberdeen said...

Hi Eric
Yes it's even Sprung up here in Aberdeen (well, crocuses but no daffodils as yet). Sadly, I no longer have Hamish to blame for the lack of flowers and generally dishevelled state of my back garden...

We just had our first daffodil come up here yesterday!


Gus said...

Our front walk looks like muzzer hit a sale on daffodil bulbs, and we've got about 4 (four) crocii, but no two lips yet.

Ahem. However, it is s'posed to freeze over night on Sattiday, so I guess my towels will be spendin the night outside trying to keep everyplant alive.


Martha & Bailey said...

Dear Eric, than you so much for this indepth report on Spring Sprunging!
We have some of those pretty little crocus things that they don't like you standing on!
We are waiting for the daffodils!
We see them beginning to grow but not flowering yet.
You reminded us of a Spring lamb today with your curly haired enthusiam!

No spring over here, buddy. They call it autumn. But by your square standards it would count as summer. Ha!

TwoSpecialWires said...

Spring? Well. That means something different here. You tell Eric (and Old Soul) to nose every one of the sprung up green shoots with their pretty yellow and white flowers. And think of us as they do. We've got warm weather today, and snow tomorrow. The daffydills that are trying to pop through the ground will be buried in the white stuff by morning. (And we don't even get to plant the crow cusses. The deer eat them in nothing flat.) So. Do you see just how important your posts are to us? They get us through the next two months of BROWN (and white).

Thanks for cheering us up,
Jake and Fergi xxoo

Hi, Eric!

Kisses and hugs

Mango said...

Oh yes! It is happening here too and I am enjoying most wonderful sun bakes.


Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

There's some kinda odor in our air here too dear Eric...what with Scruffy's usual state of flatulence and now Stanny on those paw druggies...yeesch...I need a bunch of those DAFFY DILLIES to sink my Lakie nose into...


Did ya get my poem??

Superb, isn't it?


Clive said...

Yup, spring has finally arrived here as well - always seems to come just after Paddy's Day! Even our goldfish are moving about in the pond again and the daffs are finally blooming! Much later than last year but lovely to see some yellow in the garden!

Have a lovely weekend
Clive and the NSLM

Dewey Dewster said...

Good evening eric
The beautiful daffodil flower is in blossom also in Britain.
Of course, the daffodil is in blossom also in Japan.
The warmth on the season of spring was waited for impatiently.
A wonderful weekend with a comfortable wind.

Joe Stains said...

We have already had 80 degree weather here in the desert. Spring Sprung a while ago!! :)


hey square pal
you got me wig waggin over your post. Spring flowers? where's the squirrels... ducks... rabbits. I wanna see some diggin? Eric.. you're over two now.. are you bad gone good?

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Squirrels...did Norweed say squirrels?? I still haven't forgiven him for Mango Minster...sheesch...

So, dear are the preps going for Scruffs?

I hope you have a giant can of oil to fix all the squeakin' creakin' creatures...are Jax's wheelies still locked in the coal bin?

I'm figurin' you might be able to remedy that...

Kisses, Laciegirlie

Stanislaw said...

Spring?! It SNOWED all day yesterday in my town! Can you send some spring this way?

tula said...

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

Oh Eric it is certainly Spring here in Phoenix, Arizona. Today our hoomans went to the Zoo and they said that ALL the animals were pairing up.Otters were smooching and Crains and Flamingos and Giraffes & the Lions were absolutely swooning over each other!! The Rhinos were even crossing their horns like love struck kids! Yup,pup,Spring has sprung here too.

Hello Eric! Yay! Spring is here in bonnie Scotland! We have lots of spring flowers and sunshine, so glad to see the back of all that wretched snow!

Happy Spring!

Chef said...

Spring hasn't sprung for us in Canada yet, Eric. We had a couple of mild days last week but yesterday it SNOWED - on the first day of spring, wouldn't ya know! Well, last week we did see the first of the crocuses and the first green blades of grass so that means spring is coming soon.
All I can say to winter is: Buh-bye.


ScrapsofMe said...

It must be spring here too, it's hard to tell in Floriduh, but I did see a small snake sunning in the lava rocks. I ran him off post haste and dislodged a great number of lava rocks doing it. It gives her something to do, putting them back. I'd hate for her to get useless (or more useless). And there are fat squirrels running about playing and driving me NUTZ. They sit just out of reach and chatter at me. Make me BARKING mad. And I'm beginning to feel...a bit of romance in the air.


Life With Dogs said...

Not bad at all thanks! :)
By the way, we have the same collar. Nice choice! :)

William Tell said...

That looks very much like my yard today, yellow daffies everywhere!

Happy Tails,

Hiya Square-C!

My spring is going well. I've been doing surprisingly well lately too.
Knock wood
I don't want to jinx myself!

I haven't seen any flowers yet but grass in out instead of snow and i see lots of little creatures roaming outside that catch my attention.

You're looking extra super duper cute!
It must be the spring air!!

Smooches 2 u!

Loads of Lakie-Lovin' sent to my distant relatives everywhere who aren't feeling so good. I sure hope they feel better soon!
