We've Come To Bring Stella Home

Four years ago today we drove to Connecticut to look at a little white half corgi that had been rescued along with her rambunctious brothers.  We took one look at her and said, "We've come to bring Stella home." She was a very shy pup and obviously needed a home away from her brothers.

In the car we decided to rename her Winter (an homage to Game of Thrones).  We knew we would change her name as the idea of walking around in the woods calling "STELLA" did not appeal!

Below is her annual birthday portrait.


This one I took the day she came home.  The daffodils were in full bloom.  As I recall it was in the 70's, and stayed that way for several days.  This year we are not going to have as many blooms.  We had warm days in January which made them come up.  Then it got cold which led to a lot of winter burn and killed the budding.  I should take them up and separate them this summer.
 

The crocuses are in full bloom.  I find their flowers so hopeful......yes, spring and summer will come!


Enjoy the day, and, as always, thanks for stopping by.............*s*

  5. Hi Linda....Posing her with daffodils is not as easy as it looks as she is not allowed in the gardens.

  6. You and Winter were so lucky to have found each other!
    I hope the storm fizzles and you are spared a late storm.

  7. Dearest Suzi,
    How lovely your Winter is and yes, Stella sounds a bit strange...
    So you too have few daffodil blooms. Our beautiful double Ehrlicheer daffodils had only ONE stem with blooms... No vases from that one. We did get some of the yellow fragrant ones but compared to earlier years it was laughable.
    No crocus at all...
    Now the trees are getting leaves and the redbuds and dogwoods are blooming; a pretty sight with all the azaleas too.
    Sending you hugs and blessings,
    Mariette

    PS our oldest cat-boy Barty turned 12 on the 17th.

  8. Hi Mariette......Winter has been a delight for us, although she is still quite shy with people and new things.
    I think my daffodils' buds froze when they were up and budded and we had the coldest days of the year. I'm hope that the clumps out in the yard which are just beginning to show.
    Thankfully the blueberries did not bloom so they did not freeze in the snow we are now experiencing.
    Congratulations to Barty!
