Best of the Weekend, March Madness & My Blogiversary!

Welcome to Best of the Weekend!
We are smack in the middle of March Madness, 
and I'm not just talking about basketball.
It's the weather - such MADNESS!
It has been so mild here the last week or so,
that all of my spring flowers are blooming a full month earlier than usual.
But -- we are expecting snow on Sunday,
which could deposit 3-6 inches by the time it's said and done.
I hope it doesn't kill the forsythia and daffodils.

As for that other "Madness,"

let's just say that the "Eeny, Meeny, Miny, Mo" method 
of bracket-selection may not have been the best strategy,
yet somehow, I am winning more than I'm losing.
My championship game teams are still in it! 

And finally, tomorrow marks three years since I started my blog!
How the time has flown -- sheer madness!
