Honestly, I thought this little theme of watching spring arrive in March was going to be more interesting than this!
Yes, we had some days of sun in the last week that worked a bit on snow melt. I even had 2 days of in the 40’s to walk outside and help blow away my cold. (Yes, feeling better this weekend.) But still we are looking at snow and a brown yard.
One time out, I paid special attention to my rose bushes as my dBIL was giving me advice on their care. The bushes have a lot of buds waiting to come (and so do the nearby fire bushes) but they will continue to wait.
This morning it was 17′ F when P went out for chores and this week barely has days above freezing. Winter continues.
P is hopeful for spring – one tractor is in the shop and besides getting the imminent problem fixed, it is getting ready for a hard-working spring. He has his eyes out for another tractor to replace a smaller one. And he has spent time working on the planter. I have no idea what he has done so soon with the planter but he is getting ready. Surely, spring will come at some point!
I’m not sure the photo will change much by our 5th Sunday but I’ll aim to post again and we’ll see all 5 weeks in progression.
