Don't let the blue sky and the emerging daffodils fool you...
(Yes, that's Sam's snooty pose.)
it was a mere 10 degrees as we did morning chores yesterday.
That's quite a bit colder than what we experience the past few weeks...
with highs reaching near 70 degrees.
I was sure winter was over.
But Winter is like that.
He loves to make you think he's left you...
and all of a sudden "BAM!" he hits you right between the eyes
with a blast of bone chilling air!
We even had snow squalls on Friday that produced complete white-outs!
And yet... the day lilies are up in the front pasture... seemingly untouched by the cold.
No lamenting, though...
it is to get warm again this week.
And that's a good thing, too...
because the garden project is under way....
and should be completed this week.
These garden boxes are made from your old milk jugs.
They are built from planks of HDPE... that will last a lifetime.
(at least my lifetime!)
Once the weather is warmer, I will top each box off with a mix of
compost and topsoil.
And then the fun begins!!
We had a perfectly lovely weekend...
just the right mix of activity
We are ready to take on another week!
After all... spring is just two weeks away!
Can you believe it?
