In gardening news, we have received all of the seeds I ordered from Seed Savers Exchange, and with a few others from the garden center, I started them in seed trays to get ready for the upcoming spring.
It is exciting to see them poking their little heads up, but I am ready for spring to be here. Now.
I hear my friends and family in Atlanta talking about warm weather, not just crocuses blooming, but cherry blossoms. I am so jealous. My southern internal clock is telling me, "It's time for spring!" Here, there is nothing blooming outside. What I have instead is a backyard swamp.
It started with the snowmelt, and then continued with sleet and rain. Ick. Today is sunny and pretty outside, but it's 31ºF, and my back yard is still half lake, which the dog likes to bring inside for me.
At least he's cute, right? Even if he likes to contort himself as he naps on the floor. (I apologize for the poor photo quality.)
