I don't want to hear one peep out of any of you who are getting all hot and sweaty working out in your garden today.
My weather prediction of "only rain" was wrong for over night. But rather than inches of snow, we only got a dusting as you can see in this view of part of the garden area. (Do you think I should chance setting out my tomatoes today?)
A dusting on hubby's newly washed truck.
It's so cold and blustery this morning not even one self-respecting duck did I see on the pond.
This was taken from the inside out. I wait as long as I can each spring to pull the winter evergreen bough decorations out of the window boxes because once the boughs are gone, the boxes are bare because I have to wait until near the end of May to plant the annual flowers in them. This morning, my winter window boxes look right in style, don't they?
Papa Pea dressed to go out for morning chores. It's still snowing lightly, the temp reads 26 and there is one mean wind blowing.
When outside I found many (previously healthy) earthworms such as this one who must have come out yesterday during the heavy rain. Bad idea. Very bad idea.
Yupper, this is spring time in the Northwoods. And this is why I don't even start seeds inside until about now!
Preparedness ~ Weeding and no rain
