Now that the snow is melting, I like to get out in my garden and check things out. Usually I just walk around a bit . . . remembering; doing a little dreaming; a little scheming.
Yesterday, though, I decided to take it a step further. I decided to Garden.
Sure. It's barely above freezing here, and snow is still lingering in some parts of the yard. But, well. . . I'm itchy . . . and a little bit twitchy . . . to get to gardening. Besides, NOW is a great time to start in with some pruning (except on those spring-blooming shrubs; don't prune those yet) and some of the clean-up chores.
As long as you can stand the cold, that is!
So I put on my winter jacket.
And a wool hat.
And a pair of fingerless mitts OVER my gardening gloves.
Then I grabbed my pruners, and headed out for some time in the garden.
Yikes. My fingers were frozen solid within 30 minutes! But I did get some pruning and cleaning up done . . . at least in one corner of my backyard bed . . . before frostbite set in.
And guess what?
Even though snow is in the forecast this week (yeah; I know), it looks like spring IS coming.
I have proof!
