Well, it appears as though spring came and went with the blink of an eye. I actually really love winter, unlike my fellow midwesterners. Maybe it's because I grew up in Texas where winter doesn't really exist. I completely immerse myself in the (non)activities of winter that I forget how much I LOVE spring. Warming myself up in the crisp air by raking leaves, getting my hands dirty again, planning the garden and seeing where plants have migrated around the yard, what plants are coming back, what ones are not. It really is the best. After a couple of excellent storms, the yard now looks completely different than the pictures below. I'll share those pics later.
Happy outdoors weather!
We had a scare of a hard frost and I covered everything up with sheets.
It was laborious but I think it was worth it.
We pile our compost when it's ready to be used under the magnolia tree in the front yard.
