Springtime: Here and There

It has turned out to be an absolutely gorgeous Sunday afternoon in Poolesville. Our sliding glass door is open, allowing a warm breeze to slightly move the curtains. I can see the Willow Tree budding and the Forsythia taking on it's yellow hue. The white, puffy clouds are beautiful against the blue sky backdrop. Our Dove couple have returned for the fourth consecutive year, so the cooing can be heard. It appears that Spring has finally arrived in Poolesville.

On the other side of the world, we have Springtime in Afghanistan. The spring thaw signals the start of the Afghan "fighting season". I've read numerous articles telling the story of Canadian and Australian soldiers killed recently. Roughly 65,000 international forces are in Afghanistan, more than half from the United States.


A U.S. Marine carries supplies from a helicopter on March 27, 2009 to a remote Marine camp in Golestan in southwestern Afghanistan. Marines in the area have seen a spike in Taliban attacks in recent days with the onset of the traditional spring "fighting season."

As we enjoy the many pleasures which Spring holds, let us not forget our Airman, Soldiers, Sailors and Marines.

It's a nice spring day here too.

Looks like when the Taliban finish with their opium crop they go back to their terrorism.

I think they need to start hitting the drug trade that is funding these idiots.

hammer...thanks for stopping by. I must ask; is it power, drugs or religion?

Beautiful Spring day here as well Airman Mom....
I'm going to concur with you....I think that it's a combination of all 3: Power, Drugs & Religion.
Crazy, no? I find that I just don't understand and couldn't be prouder of our brave men and women who fight for our liberties and freedom.

I woke up to about 3 inches of snow on this fine spring day here in Iowa. But, a lot of it has melted only some here and there.

AM,

Your description of your beautiful weather was beautiful. It rained here this morning but this afternoon was sunny with a bite in the air. Yesterday was warm and lovely.

I will keep these men and women in my prayers. They are not forgotten.

Blessings,
Mary

We're enjoying downpouring rain, and melting snow that combine for unbelievable mud...not as much fun as it sounds where you are!

We'll never forget our soldiers and their sacrifices!
