The daffodils in our flower garden are sprouting, but no where near flowering like these beauties that Taana Kalliainen found. I don't know about you, but it sure brightens my day to see such vivid yellow blooms like these. It's not unusual to have a few crocuses this time of year, but if I'm not mistaken, this is pretty early for daffodils and the like. This spring, instead of April showers bringing May flowers, we've had March showers bring April flowers. Can't say that I mind, though.

This is the final weekend we all need to vote each day for Copper Country Humane Society in The Shelter Challenge. Overnight CCHS extended its first place lead, and you can be sure the folks in Iowa will be enlisting all of their friends to take it back. Every vote counts, to finish this race in first place!

Oh how wonderful....Spring truly has SPRUNG!!! LOVE the daffodils! Mine are no where near this stage either! They look like green stems with a yellow tip. :D But they are coming!


There it is...the link to bring CCHS to the WINNER'S CIRCLE! Let's hammer that vote! Thank you from the critters that have been rescued!

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Saturday, April 17, 2010 - 07:35 am:

Gotta love spring!

You have to vote, we are barely ahead this morning! Thanks!

By Warren Gilbert (Warren) on Saturday, April 17, 2010 - 08:06 am:

I voted!!! Yes Spring has Sprung! I hope tonight's frost doesn't hurt the flowers. They are so beautiful!

Let's get out the vote everyone!

By Mike Diljak (Mikebass) on Saturday, April 17, 2010 - 08:19 am:

Here is an idea. To celebrate winning the CCHS thing, free pasties
for everybody! Just saying...

By Richard L. Barclay (Notroll) on Saturday, April 17, 2010 - 08:22 am:

We have daffodils my wife snuck out and planted, too, and dandelions in a sheltered location
Early Dandy
And the graph showing yesterdays votes.

My daffodils came up and are looking awesome! Every bulb came up, which is unusual, as usually some little critters manage to run away with a few. I've been voting everyday. Clap, clap to all those who have!

Donna...you had better start practicing your acceptance speech for that bronzed super-duper, pooper-scooper and do not forget the to pick up the new gown.

By Rowdy (Roudymi) on Saturday, April 17, 2010 - 09:22 am:

Add a "Upper" to that line Alex. Would add a nice ring and would work in all seasons. When will the speech be? After the 21st?

By Rowdy (Roudymi) on Saturday, April 17, 2010 - 09:31 am:

Boy I wish I'd learn to Spell. At first blush and 2 reworks it still looked right; till I hit that send button. You all familiar with that sudden sinking feeling you get when hitting that send button?

I think tomorrow will be the day my son will officially be a mate on a lake freighter. How cool is that?

Hi all. Been a long time since I've posted but I take a peek everyday. I've been voting along with all of you for the eventual CCHS win.

To help things along I've enlisted the help of the online community at Fark.com. Fark is a primarily a news site but the online community there is always ready to lend a hand for causes like this.

Keep you eye on the chart between now and the close of the contest. I have a feeling CCHS will shoot through the roof for the WIN!!!

By Smfwlk (Trollperson) on Saturday, April 17, 2010 - 09:48 am:

I voted! We have snow flurries here - hope the cold snap doesn't hurt all the flowers.

By Janet Boatman (Janetnwohio) on Saturday, April 17, 2010 - 10:08 am:

I vote every day and was so happy to see it paid off great job people isn't it amazing what people working together can do.

By Anita Marsy-Bosley (Anitamb) on Saturday, April 17, 2010 - 10:28 am:

Copper Country Humane Society......YES WE CAN!!

By Matt Karhu (Matt_k) on Saturday, April 17, 2010 - 10:55 am:

Spring is sprung and grass is ris,
where last year's crazy drivers is.

By Uncle Chuck at Little Betsy (Unclechuck) on Saturday, April 17, 2010 - 11:20 am:

Voted!, flowers don't do much for me, sorry.

By ILMHitCC (Ilmhitcc) on Saturday, April 17, 2010 - 01:43 pm:

Those daffodils are stunning! I've not been a big flower person, but I've always loved the bulb flowers and lilacs. Perhaps because it means summer is coming, as they usually bloomed mid to late May.

I wonder, though - if April showers are supposed to bring May flowers, what do April flowers bring? It sure is early.

By Walter P McNew (Waltermcnew) on Saturday, April 17, 2010 - 03:44 pm:

beautiful daffeydills====i remain walter p.

By Lisa R. (Sisugirl) on Saturday, April 17, 2010 - 05:48 pm:

LOVE the daffodil pictures today! Beautiful! They were my mother's favorite flower, so they're extra special to me.

Voting like crazy here, so is my honey, my sister, and some friends. Let's hammer it home for CCHS! (BTW, I haven't been able to get the graph/chart to display. Has anyone else experienced this? Maybe my connection is just slow...)

By Richard L. Barclay (Notroll) on Saturday, April 17, 2010 - 06:35 pm:

Did your son go to the officers' school or train up on the ships? Just curious. You gotta be proud of that!

By richard simpson (Wanderer) on Saturday, April 17, 2010 - 07:39 pm:

Please, everyone, please keep voting this weekend. One more day. Final results on Monday. CCHS must win this contest. Go Critters!!!

By Deb L. (Lakegirl) on Saturday, April 17, 2010 - 08:06 pm:

A little late for me today, but I voted!

By Brenda Leigh (Brownmoose) on Sunday, April 18, 2010 - 07:45 am:

In answer to the question, If April showers are supposed to bring May flowers, what do April flowers bring?
APRIL FLOWERS BRING PASTY POWER. It is grand that we are ahead and that so many people are rallying to win this contest. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK AND THANKS TO EVERYONE FOR THIS SUPPORT.
