We've been having beautiful, sunny days above freezing so the snow is slowly melting.
Not the prettiest time of year around here, but we have to go through it to get to warmer weather and the beginning of another glorious, green, gardening season.
Speaking of which, I'm actually starting to work on the layout of this year's garden. As much as I fight to hang on to my winter hibernation period, I'm actually getting a little itchy to see green plants and colorful blossoms where a solid blanket of white has been for several months.
I feel a good organizational kind of day coming on for tomorrow. Lots of must-dos were taken care of today. Laundry and ironing, I cleaned out the refrigerator (yay!), made some good food that will serve as yummy leftovers tomorrow so I won't have to do much cooking.
Sunday night I baked an apple cake that isn't totally obliterated as of this hour so that should serve as a sweet should it be needed.
I started to get out Easter decorations today but realized they just "don't go" with the winter ones still scattered in every room.
Yep, even though it's a long time before real spring hits us in our northern clime, I'm going to pack away all the blue and white snow-flaky decor tomorrow and put up some light and bright spring things. Then I'll feel I can finish placing the Easter ones around, too.
The above shows the beginning of our driveway (just to the right of the big snow bank on the left) leaving our yard area. Truth to tell, we haven't had a snow flake fall on us for a couple/few weeks now (sorry, Susan) and the slow melting that has been going on has enabled the moisture to seep into the ground without forming as much mud, puddles and ice as usual. Not a bad way to slip into spring up here in the north woods.
Still a Few Flowers in this Crunchy Summer
