I was a little worried this year when March came in like a lamb.
You know the old saying, “In like a lion, out like a lamb.” And vice versa.
I was worried that March was going to go out like a lion.
We have a high of 74 today and it’s sunny and beautiful outside!
Yesterday after I got off work, I didn’t have to put on my coat for the first time this spring! Hallelujah!
Then on the way home, I saw the first tree buds of the season. That clinched it; I had to go home, get the camera, and get back out there.
I couldn’t leave the house without Elli. She sure likes her a car ride. But she was TICKED when I pulled over, got out of the car, and LEFT HER ALONE.
As I was taking these, she was voicing her displeasure as only a tightly coiled Jack Russell Terrier can. And the barks got increasingly louder as her separation anxiety heightened.
So it went like this.
“Elli, SHUDDUP. I’ll be there in a minute!”
Et cetera, et cetera. Those couple shots were just the keepers from that bunch, so multiply the Click-Bark-Shuddup bit about tweventy times.
So I finally got all the shots of the buds that I wanted and we were on our way again.
The windows were down, her head and top of her body was hanging dangerously out the window, she was happily enjoying the wind in her face.
Then I passed by a house that had some new flowers right out front, and I just couldn’t resist pulling over and getting shots of them.
Click. Yip! SHUDDUP.
Click. YIPYIP! SHUDDUP!
So I got all those, but again, only the keepers you see, so Click-Yip-Shut the Hell UP ALREADY times another twenventy.
It takes a very special person to be owned by a Jack Russell Terrier.
We got home and I had to get a shot in my neighbor’s yard, so she got to go with me for this one.
(Except for her snuffling all over the place, smelling everything she possibly could, as fast as she possibly could.)
