Well, Hello There

The denizens of Casa de Crazy spent much of the day outside...and can you blame us, when it was in the mid-sixties all day? The Evil Genius even manged to get a wee sunburn. Nothing horrible, just a little pink here and there.

While Someone worked his cute tushie off, I spent a chunk of time whittling wands our of Forsythia branches. I even made a little one for Bird, who promptly asked me why it wasn't working...he was trying to magic some plants from outside where Someone was re-potting them into his room. I told him he was doing it wrong and to practice. He was busy all afternoon.

Some neighbors put in an appearance, announcing that it may yet freeze, it may yet rain, but Spring is truly nigh.

See that speck a bit left of center? Bat.

Honest, look.

Lookit 'im go!

He (or she) was having a feast, and there were several others enjoying an evening's flight, too.

Go, bats, go - they eat mosquitoes by the ton and are most welcome here.

Hello, friends!

Then there was this fellow in the woods.
The first of his clan to make himself known, but there will be many more in the next few days - they don't take snow (hah!) for an answer.

Nice shots! Almost got dizzy watching the bat, how 'bout you? The daffies are up in places here, too. Waiting for the hyacinths of which some are starting to poke their heads out just at the bottome of the leaves.

Mizz Darsden, it is positively scrumptious here at Casa de Crazy, and we're going outside as much as possible to soak it all in. I like watching the bats flutter about, especiallt in the Summer when the mosquitoes are out in full force.

Mum, I can't wait to see the Hyacinths up...want to photograph them! There are hundreds of Daffies waiting to pop in the woods....it's going to be fun watching them come out.
