What Month Is It, Anyway?

Another glorious day was given to us yesterday.
Temperatures reached around 60 degrees in the afternoon...
making outside work delightful.
This was our beautiful little valley as the sun rose...

I worked on de(con)structing our vegetable garden.
It's kind of sad, after these last few years of wonderful garden harvests,
to say goodbye to the present garden.

The upside of all this tearing down is the fact that there is a new garden in the works.
By planting time we will have new garden boxes in a new configuration.
Oh what garden fun I will have this Spring!

I also gave the grape arbor a rather severe haircut.
I removed two whole gator loads of excess vine.
Let's hope this warm weather does not force the vines to put out buds too early!
I also worry about our fruit trees for the same reason.

As usual, while I toiled...
the animals enjoyed the sunshine and napped.

Everyone napped.

And napped.

And napped.
He's such an angel...when he sleeps!

Even my sidekick, Sam, took a snooze...

while sitting in the gator.

After months of grey, chilly days,
a sunny day is heavenly...
even to the animals!

I have to admit...
I am just a little jealous!

It looks like more of the same for today!

PS:  that huge egg I showed you yesterday was a double yolker.
Hubbs ate it for breakfast...before I had a chance to crack it open to show you!

Looks like everyone needed a good dose of sunshine. I can't wait to see the "new" garden. I was thinking it just might of been a triple yolker!!

I think Sam is meditating......I can almost hear the "ohmmm!" Beautiful valley shot!

Sammy is the best sleeper..cooler today..Ollie looks like he's in heaven..I wonder what he's dreaming about..BAD Hubs!! He should have know that a double yolk requires a picture..
Happy Tuesday..

OMGosh, that Sammy is too funny! Everyone should be well rested so they can help you with chores tomorrow!

Enjoy the sunshine!

Like you we've had beautiful last few days and got so much work done outside. I don't dare think that spring is here because we calves to deliver in two weeks and we always have freezing rains and snows in March and April. With that said I've spent as much time as possible outdoors with some spring projects and a big farm project. More to come! I love seeing your beautiful animals in every post!
