It's a glorious day here today with one of those startling blue skies -- about 34 degrees with only a slight windchill. The roadways and most walks are clear. Tomorrow should be 47 and Friday 60 and all of the snow in these photos will be gone.
A new squirrel-proof feeder.
Hard to believe that in four weeks I can start to plant hearty nasturtiums and some pansies. It's also time for me to spray the roses and work on where I'll place the myriad pots. After they are all placed, I'll plan on paper what colors (I tend to mix a lot of red and purple) I want and then what plants I'll look for. To me this is 'fun.' It's also the time of year when Richard prepares a poster with my picture captioned with, "Don't Sell to This Woman," which he then sends it out to all area nurseries and garden stores. Last year, I just had to 'cast a wider net.' :)
