Spring is coming...

Hello all :o)

Spring is sooner recognized by plants than by men.  ~ Chinese Proverb

Meee is so pumped about springtime arriving soon. 
Cannot complain about having a harsh winter this year but still, cabin fever is inevitable in the cold winter months when everything around us is gray. So at my house everybody is ready for the pawsome greenery that springtime brings along.

Speaking of greenery, Meee has an interesting and educational story...
My Mommy posted awhile back on Yorkiespice, a picture of my Bro, Ray resting comfortable on the couch. In the background of that picture, one could see this healthy looking houseplant spreading its leaves on the back of the couch. 
Well, a very observant Lady from the Yorkiespice list, who happens to be Miss Tink and Miss Buff’s Mommy, asked about that plant and if we were aware that it was toxic for furbabies. When my Mommy saw her comment, her first reaction was, No way! Needless to say that she dropped everything she was doing at that moment which just so happened to be getting our dinners ready, Argh! got on her computer and to her shock that beautiful houseplant named Golden Pothos was on the list of poisonous houseplants.
Immediately, she relocated all those plants up high and out of our reach even though, Meee and my siblings never paid attention to them before. She vacuumed the room thoroughly and an hour later that evening we finally got our dinners. Sigh...

We are all so thankful to Miss Tink and Miss Buff's Mommy for catching the danger living among us. 
On that note, we should all be aware now with springtime just around the corner, of all the hazardous indoor and outdoor plants. Meee thought that the following link is very informative of such dangers: Poisonous Plants

Another important thing to keep in mind this time of the year, are the lawn chemicals many Humans do not think twice before applying. Our Pawrents use only the organic weed control and when we go for our walks, we always stay away from the lawns that have those flags saying that pesticides were applied.

Wishing you all a Blessed Spring and Meee would like to conclude with Robin Williams’ quote: ~ Spring is nature’s way of saying, “Let’s party!”

Neeko :o)    
P.S. Today's joke:
~ Four high school boys afflicted with spring fever skipped morning classes. After lunch they reported to the teacher that they had a flat tire.
Much to their relief she smiled and said, "Well, you missed a test today so take seats apart from one another and take out a piece of paper."
Still smiling, she waited for them to sit down. 
Then she said: "First Question: Which tire was flat?" ~
