Look What's Dancing in My Gardens This Morning!

Early morning dancin' going on here... just at my gardens edge. And the dance means that big changes are happening here.

This is the view from my window on Friday morning...

Counting the days until my posts won't include snow.

And Sunday morning...
Change is Happening
February 27,2011

You may notice the snow is gone...

But I'm noticing those big piles of dirt.  They happened Saturday while I was away for the day.

Here's the dirt digger this morning... still sleeping.

But I watched with amazement as the big guy awoke. Surely reminiscent of a Pixar movie. You'll just have to use a little imagination here as I was so mesmerized by the action that I didn't grab my camera fast enough.

First, his long arm began to stretch. (I do that in the morning, too.)

Then his body began to spin.. a little this way, a little that way, then round and round and round. Then back again the other direction...wheeeeeeee!

I watched as the big old arm moved toward the ground and propped one side up so the roller wheel could spin... one way then the other, faster, faster! Then the arm moved to prop the other side and this roller wheel took his turn at spinning. (Can't you just sense how much fun this must be?)

Finally, fully awake the entire creature spun round and round and round obviously in great jubilation at the start of this new day. 

What a great morning dance!

Now what?

There's gotta be work to do. 

Stay tuned!


  1. Yes what a great morning dance!!! Have a nice day/Gela

  2. can't wait to see it...I am assuming it is a project you are doing?

  3. wow - the snow just dissapeared overnight? I can sense spring is just around the corner for you! Is this creature in your yard or the neighbours?

  4. oh I am curious, what big project is brewing...

  5. And here I thought I was the only one mesmerized by such activity! What can I say, I am easily amused. Burrrrrr, your snow looks cold to me and I don’t do well with cold temps. When living in the snowy mountains for a year, I was lucky to have a mild winter plus I was young and nothing got me down back then. LOL….

  6. Oh my Carolyn! I think the dance and your narrative are delightful but the snow melt in two days is downright amazing!

  7. Sweet anticipation ladies... things are jumping here. I'll post again tomorrow. Cat, deep snow one day and complete meltdown even by afternoon of the same day is actually a sign of Spring in Utah gardens. Gotta love it here!

  8. Hi Carolyn what project do you have going on with the big tractor? Something good I hope.

  9. 'Cars' - have you seen Cars?

    (I like the figure on the bright yellow background who seems to be running away from the action.)


  10. Your descriptione made that digger come to life for me.
    That snow disappeared so fast.
    Have a great day today, Balisha
