Finally Spring feels like it truly is coming around here. We had a bit of a early start, warm days, and stirring greens. And then we had a false snowstorm, cooler weather and lots of rain. And yesterday a small hail storm of a temper tantrum.
Some days spring teases us, warm scents of blossoms on the air, with a underlying chill of moisture. Kind of like looking at a pile of paper on the table and realizing that there are bills to be paid in there, it’s not quite what it seems.
Spring can be fickle, warm as a cat sitting in front of the fire, then cool and uncomfortable as rain trickling down your neck.
March just doesn’t seem to want to let go.
Bootsie is not loving his diet, we have contrived various ways to trick him into thinking he is getting more canned food then he does. And the results however small are showing up, in a trimmer waist line.
The new and much better quality dried food we are slowly, oh so slowly incorporating into his old cheaper dry food is being thrown by the wayside. Did you know that corn should not be one of the first 3 ingredients in dry cat food? It’s nothing more then a filler. I had no idea, and I bet that it is the same for dog food. He loves to scrape out a paw full of crunchies, and spread them out, eating only the old favorite, and leaving the new crunchies behind on the carpet.
Can’t fool that kitty, and he doesn’t want to let go of his bad habits.
Back to gardening, my peas are coming up, the garlic is planted for late summer harvest, and the onion seeds are in.
Winter is gone.
And spring is here, even if March doesn’t want to let go.
