It's official cows and roosters are now in vogue! How did I miss the text or the email letting me know?!? 

There's something about the cow above that speaks to me. (I know I probably need to either get a hobby or get out more. Maybe both?) Have no idea what he/she is telling me but without the glasses he/she would just be a regular cow. A friend of mine has this hanging in a spare bedroom and every time I see it, it makes me smile. Anything that makes you smile is good.

If you're wondering if there's a point to this post, there isn't. I just wanted to share this painting of a cow wearing glasses.

Between a Rock & a Hard Place

In my small corner of the world Spring has finally arrived. The dandelion above was discovered last week wedged between a concrete step and sidewalk.  I'm thinking it's either on track for the Guinness World Book of Dandelions as being the first to bloom or it's an overachieving weed.

According to my copy of Newcomb's Wildflower Guide, published in 1977, we have the Common Dandelion, an abundant weed that blooms from Spring to Fall.

"Abundant" doesn't begin to describe this ubiquitous invasive. One morning, usually in May, you awake and lawn cutting season begins whether you want it to or not. Wake the following morning, you discover your lawn is infested with a dandelion armada that stealthily moved in and silently bloomed overnight.

I know what you're thinking. Obviously I don't have a lawn service on speed-dial to swoop in and spray, ridding my lawn of this nasty invasive. We have a big lawn that's not so much a lawn as it is a well-controlled, nice-looking field.

However, patience is on our side and this weedy pandemic on our yard lasts about two weeks. After two or three cuttings, only a few stalwart diehards remain to annoy making sure we don't forget them. I can live with that. Luckily, I don't live in a neighborhood where lawns are groomed to within an inch of their life and dandelions need not apply.

Good-bye Winter, Hello Spring and . . . warmer weather.

Happy Spring!

It's been five years since my last blog post appeared on Valentine's Day, 2014. My how time flies! I stopped blogging because I had difficulty uploading photos to Blogger. My thoughts were What good is a blog if there aren't any photos? Or, Why bother to visit if there's nothing to see?

About two weeks ago, for grins and giggles as a friend of mine is wont to say, I logged into my blog to see if I could upload photos. Lo and behold, the problem had been fixed. How long ago? I have no idea but it's time to come back as I enjoy blogging, writing and sharing my photos with those who drop by.

So welcome back to An Inch of Time after a long hiatus.

I would love to post unfortunately I am unable to upload photos to my blog. What's the point of posting if you can't upload photos?

Blogger tells me I need to update my browser or try a different one. I've been using IE for years and am currently using IE 11 and up until recently have had no problems uploading images to my blog. I don't want to try a different browser.

I've been out to their discussion boards and know I am not the only one having this problem. So I will just have to be patient and hope Blogger fixes the issue soon. Until then, I hope you're all doing well and getting through all the cold weather and snow we've been having. Me? I'm a winter person so am loving this weather. Finally, a decent winter!!!! Take care.
