Nature Friday - Contest Update And A Surprise

 First, we join Blogville in wishing Marg a very happy birthday!

Here is our flower for Marg! Thanks Rosy for hosting this.

Now onto the When Will The Snow Be Gone Contest.

This weeks guessers, LLB Gang, Gemma's Person and Cecilia were so close but as of 5:30 last night . . .

the front yard is now officially snow free, 

but the side and backyard still have some snow.

Will the temperatures be warm enough to melt the snow on or before Susan's guess of April 10, or will Marv and friends have the closest guess without going over on April 19? 

Only time will tell! We are just excited that this is the earliest spring we have had recently!


  1. Awww, does that wee-little bit o' shaded snow seriously count? Seriously!

    Thanks for helping celebrate Miss Marg's special day!

    1. Hi dog lover,

      No matter what your dog’s problem behavior is…

      Be it jumping, peeing inappropriately, aggression, pulling on the leash…or whatever…

      There is ONE SOLUTION that can help STOP this problem now

      The sad fact is…

      Most Dog trainers miss this solution entirely.

      They give you cookie cutting training programs.

      They use outdated and ‘mean’ dominance techniques.

      Or worse yet…

      They have no qualifications and are complete phonies.

      So what’s the answer to stopping your Dog’s behavior problems?

      In 4 simple words…

      Discovering your dog’s hidden intelligence.

      Let me explain…

      In my 10 years as a certified trainer…there’s ONE BIG LESSON I have learned.

      More intelligent dogs are better behaved.

      A More intelligent dog takes commands easier

      …and understands what you need from them.

      The good news is…

      No matter how clever you think your dog is.

      You can >>> Unlock their hidden intelligence quickly and easily.

      You can >>> I’ll explain everything on this page.

      Don’t waste a second longer coping with problem behaviors you don’t need to be dealing with.

      PS Check out the brain training for Dogs course now. It’s great for eliminating any bad behaviors by tapping into your dog’s hidden intelligence.

      PPS- check out the cool dog pictures on this page.

    Good luck
    Hugs Cecilia

  8. What happens to the contest if it snows again on the front yard? He he he. Marq love her card and her flowers

  9. Glad your snow is going and Happy Birthday Marg

  10. A beautiful flower for Miss Marg today!!!

    Now, about that snow...looks like by the end of the weekend it may be gone and Spring will have arrived!

  11. First, we too are wishing Marg, the Greatest Cat Lady ever Happy Birthday too! And We LOVE your flower. Further, we have heard you guys are getting summer temperatures! We sure wish Mother Nature would turn up the thermostat here...your snow has vanished! We hope you guys have a marvellously happy day!

  12. We are certain we're not going to win based on the forecast for above freezing temps. That's good for you to have your snow gone so early in the season though.

  13. Well, we guess we can just forget about getting to our date:) It will be nice for you to have an earlier touch of Spring.

    Happy Birthday to our dear friend, Marg.

  14. Snow in shady spots is very tenacious!!
    I see you are I am, though since 1987, living in Michigan...gotta go where the hubby is...well, if you are old fashioned like me. LOL!
    Today I took my car in for service, and I have a Canadian flag plate on the front...and I handed the receptionist my keys...and there are three Canadian flags on that. Hmmm, I must be trying to make a statement! LOL!

    You sure have some pretty flowers.
    Marg will enjoy them so much!
    Happy Birthday to our friend, Marg!!

  15. The snow says, "Hell no! I won't go!"

  16. Your snow may be gone now but I'm hoping the weather forecast calling for some later this week is fulfilled. We are desperate for some spring moisture.
