Spring Cometh…

February 16th, 2007

Or at least that’s what I tell myself… :)  Woke up to 2 degrees F this morning.  Brrr!  The sun is out now at 20 degrees F, so it’s warming up.  But it’s the middle of February, and there are slight changes to be seen.  The Daffodils are peeking up almost two inches, the buds on trees are thickening and I’ve seen solitary Starlings and Sparrows around the house- which tells me they are leaving the flocks and seeking homes.  The birds are thinking of nesting… just pondering perhaps.  We bought seed packets this past weekend-  hard to believe, but if we want to put started plants in the ground by mid-April, we need to start them in containers in a couple weeks.  I’m looking forward to the warmer weather more each day, and then I say “But wait! It’s not time yet! I’m not ready!”  There are trees to prune, fallen branches to pick up, batteries to charge, the barn to clean, the garden and grounds to clean…Oh- just remembered I want to plant grass seed and cut the willows near the dam…  it all begins.  So as soon as this cold snap finishes, it’s time to head outside! I know the pup is waiting patiently…
