Spwing is Twying and my wequest

Hello deew Fwiends, as you all know, it's sposed to be spwing....HAH!!!!!!
We get one day of sunshine and then ten days of wain and gloom, the sunny days awe widicoolously wawm, then you fweeze again and cathch colds and stuff, and the poow twees and flowews awe confoosed, but they awe twying

I'm going to show you what is going on in my neighbowhood, so come along wif me

the twees in some places awe flowewing, and in othews the bwanches awe still naked
see how gwey evewything is still?

see what I mean?

the aweas awound twees have pwetty flowews, cause individooals and block associations plant spwing flowews and it makes the stweets lots nicew

My Gwammami  Kwoon looooved Doggiewoods and I do too so I always stop and say hello to them(aftew all, they awe doggies, hehehehe)

of couwse the two lipses awe out all ovew and they help the gwey days be cheewy

and the bootiful magnolias that look like candy to eat

this nice Austwian Westauwant in ouw neighbowhood aways has nice cdecowations

the habit of hanging Eastew eggses off of pussy willows is vewy Austwian and Mommi wemembews it fwom hew little giwlhood and loves seeing it

I looove the fancy two lips

I guess cause we live in a city , we notice the flowews even mowe cause it's mowe unoosual, and each one is a nice suwpwise

thewe awe lots of little public gawdens fow  us to sit and welax

and these lovely puwple hi- a - sinths have the loveliest fwagwance and wewe my Gwammpapa deLendvay(Mommi's Daddi)'s favowites

I would cewtainly NEVEW step into any of the flowewbeds awound the twees! some hoomans awe woode and diwect theiw doggies to go leave peemail in thewe..It makes mommi weally angwy

The high line is such a lovely place, and it's next to ouw house(that's it iin the backgwound), BUT no doggies ow kittehs awe allowed up thewe.
I see that as a challenge . Sooooooo, I snuck up thewe(shshhhhhhh, don't tell anyone)

It's still pwetty bawe, and the sky is gwey, but I still love being thewe

now fow my last pictoowe, I dedicate this to my fwiend Puddles fow obvious weasons (if you know hew, hehehehe)

Hope youw Spwing is twying hawd to come too

And now I have a wequest! Pleez go to JD and Max  and wead theiw wondewful bloggie and then leave a message..Theiw Mom is going to donate gween papews fow evewy message toCwossed Paws so they can continoo to help fuwwkids, plus you'll also be eligabull fow a cool pwise so PLEEEZ go do it!

Lovely post, Ms. Asta! I really enjoyed looking at your neighborhood.

It just stays very chilly here, and tonight they are calling for MORE SNOW. They expect we will have another inch or more by morning. But as much as we wish for spring weather, we don't despair. It will come early some years and late another. However, a little sunshine goes a LONG way with me.

My spring is six months away, but I loved your tour and getting to see all those pretty flowers and doggie signs that you visit.

Sending you lots of woofs,

rottrover said...

Miss Asta! We loved seeing all the pretty flowers in your neighborhood. Do you have "invisibility fur" that you can put on to sneak into those off-limits places?? You're so clever :-) We had 90 degrees on Sunday with a lovely breeze (mom even got sunburned) and then yesterday it was 65 and cloudy. We're confused. But we did get BATHS on Sunday and we're all clean and shiney!! See you soon!

THANKS fur cheering us all up. We really needed it... fur a LOT of reasons.

Kiyi Kiyi said...

I like the funny sign in dog! That's cute :) A lot nicer than the usual 'stay off' signs around here. Wow! You have a lot of flowers - we don't have that many yet.

Thanks for the lovely photos of spring. We went by to leave a comment to help Crossed Paws.

Teddy said...

You have such a pretty neighborhood, and that's really nice of you not to leave your peemails on those flowers. It's rainy and cold here, and our flowers are suffering. Hopefully they'll come out in a few weeks. Thanks for the tour through your city.


White Dog Blog said...

Asta, you have a lovely neighborhood and it seems like a special delight to turn a corner or cross a street and discover a bright spot of color...a bold message that Spring has left. The grey and rain just highlight the vivid flowers...and remind us that growth and renewal are occuring. In no time, you, mommi and daddi will be lunching at the cafe in warm smiling sunshine!

Angels Amber and Max DaWeenie and Mom said...

I tink da spring flowers are da best. We jus' don't have any here in da Sunshine State. We don't have spring, come to tink of it!

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Of course we'll go over there and visit.

NOW...you've given me a fabbers idea...

Meet you on the Highline at midnight. I've invited all the dogs from your building and run. I have the food ordered (lobster) and Scruffy and Stan are bringing the grills...

And of course my blender is available. A small donation per smoothie for Shelter Dogs of New York is welcomed.

For entertainment purposes, I am giving free Broom Rides.



Oh...bring a bag for cleanup in case any dog needs to um well, you know.

HoundDogMom said...

This is the first time that we have toured the neighbhor hood. It is beautiful. We made it by JD & Max early, that is cool what they are doing. Sniffs, The HoundDogs

Amber-Mae said...

Those poor trees & flowers. I can imagine how confused they are right now. The weather over there seems terribly confused too! Those flowers are very pretty. Bet they smell lovely!

TwoSpecialWires said...

Asta! Quick! Look out the window! Can you see the moon? We can. It's lovely. And it's the same moon that is shining over the beautiful spring neighborhood of the West Village. We LOVED your tour of colors and flowers ... it was almost as good as being there. And ... just so you know ... Fergi is still giggling about having a cell phone and being able to talk to you. I'll let her enjoy her glee for now ... we're still sorta enjoying her birthday. But one of these days I'm gonna get a phone of my own, so I can talk to you. In the meantime, I'll remember sitting on your window seat and looking out at all the city scenes.

We're headed over to JD and Max's ... and maybe we'll see you on the HighLine on our way over.

Much love, Asta. Please give Daddi and AuntieAmi a snuggle and kiss from us.
Jake (and SoundAsleepFergi)

Thank you for taking me with you....it was most enjoyable!

Amy & the house of cats said...

Hi Asta! Wow thanks for the fun tour around your neighborhood! It is so pretty to see all the blooms waiting to come up. We have had weather like you - really hot then bitter cold again. WE just don't understand it and hope spring shows up for real soon for all of us!

Bocci said...

Thanks for taking us on your walk-it's gray here, too, but the flowers help!
We shall visit your friend's blog to help support the very generous promotion they're doing- we're going there right now!

Clive said...

Asta, we really loved all your gorgerous spring photos of New York - Murray was really thrilled looking at them all.

He particularly loved seeing the Highline again - we loved visiting that last year and of course, Clive and Murray's photo there is our all time favourite photo! We can't wait to go back over to visit again!

We also loved seeing the willow branches with the little easter eggs - it's a tradition we have taken from our years living in Belgium and we only decorated our willow branches earlier today!

Have a lovely Easter and we hope the weather is good for you.

take care
Clive and Murray

We enjoyed the tour of the neighborhood and all the flowers nice people planted. We read about the Highline in the National Geographic this month. How neat that it is near your house. We hopes one day they will let doggies us there.

Anonymous said...

Gosh, look at all that SPRING where you live!! I wish I could come visit. We hardly have any spring here at all yet.

Thank you for telling me abouts JD and Max. I hadn't been around to visit them yet but I went right over. What a Most Wonderful thing they're doing.

Wiggles & Wags,

Bobby said...

Asta The blossom on the trees looks lovely. The weather is going all wrong, we always have April showers but we have had no rain for a about 5 weeks.
You sound like you are getting 4 seasons in a day, stay happy.
Licks Bobby.

Pippa said...

My mom person has some beautiful purple hyacinths on her windowsill next to her computer so she can always smell them.

I think all of the flowers pale in comparison to your beautiful spirit!
