Ho avuto abbastanza di inverno, ogni cane, gatto, criceto e umano amico,
(I have had enough winter, everydoggie, kitty, hamster and human friend,)
so I have been focusing my thoughts on spring for the past few weeks …
… and keeping my paws crossed that it would get here soon!
So ... la lezione di lingua italiana di oggi è:
(... the Italian lesson for today is:)
Segni di primavera!
(Signs of Spring!)
When I heard the birds singing this morning, I just knew: spring had arrived in mia citta! (my city!) I could sniff it in the air!
I ran outside like a blur to look for it.
This very stubborn tree STILL won't let go of last year’s leaves – santa vacca! (holy cow!) Talk about refusing to embrace change!! But I wasn’t fooled by it!
I noticed that lots of other plants in my yard seem to be getting ready for the season – like these bambini narcissi (baby daffodils). Awwww!
And here are some grande narcissi! (large daffodils!)
PeeEss: To Noah, Tess, Willow, Lucy, Opy, Charlie and all dear, sweet pals who are wayyyyyyyy down south, I hope your autumn is full of beautiful colors!
Oopsy, wait, another PeeEss: Per favore (please), go visit Lilly, Piper and Carrleigh, a trio of Scottish Terrier cutie pies who are new to our bloggiverse. Now ... you all know I'm a smidgey geloso (jealous) of mia sorella (my sister) of another decade, Scottish Terrier St. Jinks the Good, but I have to admit, THESE three doggies look like they're going to be great new pals -- and lots of fun! Benvenuto, nuovi favulosi amici! (Welcome, fabulous new friends!)
