Maybe Spring is coming

This afternoon Cliff came inside,  happy to tell me that he saw the first signs of Spring; some plants are coming up already.
Off I went to take a few pictures.
I am not sure what these flowers are called but they are very pretty.

Rhubarb peeking through

and tulips coming up as well

I am really happy to see the first signs of Spring. It is supposed to get cold again though, hopefully the snow will not reach the South Island. If it does it probably will not stay long this time of the year.
A week ago I got the duvet cover I ordered from Sears but had another disappointment. A sham was supposed to come with it but was not there. Grrrrrr 
I took it back. That is the second disappointment. To top it off the refund will not cover the handling charges both times. I don’t find that acceptable. I don’t mind the charge if I can keep the merchandise but if it is flawed I should not have to pay for it. I am waiting for my Mastercard statement to see if that is true before I complain. It is not the money but the principal of the matter.
Other than that life goes smoothly so there is not much to write about. Housework, cooking, shopping, reading spending time reading Blogs, all is well.
Good night everybody ☺

You'll have to pay the $3 handling charge as the 'handling' happens regardless of whether you return it or not. Since you returned it because of something that was supposed to be included, I'd call Customer Service for sure.

I'm very disappointed in Sears as well for even starting this charge.

Spring?? Out here in the desert that might be believable but certainly not in Montana!

What a rip off if the package didn't include what it was supposed to!

Spring will be here before you know it. :)
