February already?

My Paperwhite flowers grown from bulbs inside, are so prolific now that I had to tie the heads up with a piece of yarn!  So much fun to have fresh flowers as these when there is snow outside!  I cannot believe we are into February already!  The winter here has been harsh but moving right along!
These are buds from my neighbors tree.  I have not identified the tree as yet but these furry buds are huge, perhaps an inch in length and look like an overgrown Pussy Willow!  I am going to see if I can force it to open in the house.  My Dad used to do this each Spring with Maple branches.  He would draw the sprig in India Ink and pen and then again when leaves came out.  I still have one of these drawings and need to get it out for viewing...

Lilly is my constant welcome companion whenever I am at the computer.  If she is not bringing me her toys to throw for her and fetch, she is sleeping on my lap.

She Likes being under any little bit of my sweater-ha!

My beautiful Great Granddaughter Sofiah turned one on January 28th.  It does not seem possible that a whole year has gone by and two years since my beloved Bill passed.  He is in my heart and mind every day and I miss him terribly.  

I hope the beginning of February is a happy time for you all and thank you for visiting today.  I would love for you to leave a comment.  It is easy and I treasure them.

My heart to yours...

Hi Kerrie

That little Sophia is a cutie. What a darling photo! It is hard for me to believe that it's Feb too. January went by in a blink.

We're dealing with an ice storm this morning.Ugh!

Hi Kerrie,
I just love those forced blooms. I've actually never tried it so that is something I might do after seeing it here. Love the photo of your granddaughter; she's adorable!
Have a great weekend!
