Wind chill -30, it is gonna be awhile before I get spring. Last Saturday the snow was gone from the front yard, so I loosened up all the mulch , There was green grass under some of those packed down leaves. It is supposed to be in the 4o's by Friday.
I let the pond freeze up again this year. I did the same last winter and the fish were okay. I don't think it was this cold for this long though . I hope I did n't loose any, I had some really pretty ones This has been going on since November.
The side garden has turned out wonderful. I got a gallon of rasberrys last fall, I moved the strawberrys to the side garden, I think they will do better there .I even got some currents but not enough so pick so I let the birds have them. I got the garden all ready to plant. I dug up all that sod, and then my neighbor was taking out his side flower bed and I got all that wonderful loose sandy soil. So had a guy come an rototill it in . I just need to work in a few sacks of manure and I am going to have a wonderful garden. My tomatoes were so good this year.
Bill your pictures are beautiful, winter is a beautiful season and I am going to love it when I can say, I am staying home today, driving in this mess just wears me out. Witt 70 degrees...oh that must feel good.
Been awhile, I am so waiting for spring , I needed to look at my garden and read everyones blogs to remind me spring has come in some places in the country .
I was raking Friday, but today 5 inches of snow is expected, almost have that now, and the day is only half over.I don't complain about the amount that falls from the sky. Just the amount that gets piled up, and turns into Glaciers in my back yard. Back East has way more snow that we ever get.
