Maybelle Welcomes You to Spring!

I've been trying to figure out just how old Maybelle is now. Not sure exactly, but I'm guessing about 12. She loves to be outside when it's warm. Who can blame her?

Maybelle is more fondly known as "Frank" around our house. The reason for this is in "The Rescuers Down Under" there is a lizard named Frank in a cage that wants his freedom so he cries, "Let me out! Let me out!" When he finally gets out, the door to the cage closes behind him, but he faces a pursuing enemy, so he turns back and grabs on the door and cries out, "Let me in! Let me in!" Our Frank goes in and out of the house so fast sometimes that it seems as if she cannot decide which side of the door is best!
One time, unbeknownst to me, she actually got trapped in the best of both worlds, even though she didn't see it that way. I thought I had let her into the house and walked away. About an hour later, I was heading outside, and there was Frank, trapped between the storm door and the main door! Poor Frank!
Here's some photos to enjoy from around our small farm. I couldn't resist since it's a record high temp day here in NE Ohio! Hope you find the evidence of spring invigorating!

Ahh, Maybelle is beautiful. We accidentally trapped our Busgy in between the storm door and the door once, but only for a few minutes until we heard a funny noise.
Your Spring flowers look wonderful! Thanks for sharing and Happy Easter friend!

Funny Maybelle, she just couldn't decide what she wants! LOL! This is the joy of having a pet that couldn't make up her mind LOL! ;D

Beautiful flowers, we don't get to see flowers like these over here. And they grown in your farm! Wow!
