SPRING!!!! Hallelujah and do I hear an Amen?? And how bout them Red Sox? Eat crow Yankee suckkkkaaaas!!
The yard is almost 100% raked free of all leaves that surfaced in my yard after I did my big fall clean up (from my wonderful neighbor who lives across the street, whom I love but never rakes his damn leaves and they all blow over to my house) which is a near miracle for early April.. the crocus' have bloomed and I've decided I need more for next year.. and the birds are coming back. Granted, we have birds at our feeders all winter long.. but they are the hardy kind that stick out the cold and the snow. This week I've sighted several of the migrating types, and I'm glad they have come back to visit.
My brother bought me the cutest frog garden thermometer and rain gauge set for Christmas, and I've been dying for the snow to melt so I can figure out where to put these little jems.
On a sadder note, I've learned that my poor veggie garden, that we put in with such love and pride, doesn't get enough sun to support veggie life, which is why it's done so poorly the past 3 summers, and I think I'm going to have to brake down and turn it into a flower patch. Which, gives me a great place to put my froggies. It's presently a square raised bed, so I am going to plan it out with flowers and a path or two, and maybe even a water pool. We'll see how it goes. When life hands you salt, make margaritas' right?
