Spring Like Days

I can't believe how warm it has been this March. It has been pretty great to get out and walk around in the sun with the dogs, they seem to enjoy this warm weather just as much. With the end of winter means that Rita's is open for business, they have some of the best water ice. Rita's is pretty iconic in the Philly area, and my favorite treat to get is the Mango gelati which is vanilla custard on the bottom with a layer of water ice topped off with a dollop of vanilla custard. The water ice isn't like the water ice you get at the super market thats rock hard, its a little thicker then a sluppery with small chunks of fruit in it.

It is also the time of year for sidewalk chalk drawings. These are a few from the school near our house, and the students loved seeing Vinnie while they were out drawing. I'm not sure if he enjoyed all the attention or they enjoyed his attention more. It interesting to watch middle school students soften up when there is a dog around. I guess some of it has to do with the dog always excepting them just the way they are, there are no games being played. It would be really neat if dogs could be allowed in schools, but I get the whole allergy thing but it would be nice.

With all of these weather the roses should be starting to wake-up and start growing leaves and then buds. This rose is one that had bought at the flower show and I just thought it looked really beautiful. Most of the daffodils are up so I will have to get some pictures of them b/c they are the most interesting yellow.
