With winter still lingering this is a glimpse of warmth and flowers I can share.It's below freezing today and we may receive some snow. My early tulips are peeking, but I doubt much growth will be perceived this week. For many of us we won't be tilling that soil very soon. I get to hear a few of you already enjoying spring and it warms me to think my season is soon. I have seen a few pieces of farming equipment on the road, but no turned fields. My garden club will discuss drip irrigation next week and it seems so far away to use. When I saw this giant shovel below, I thought of Ellen shoveling two yards of soil this last week by herself. I have been out late in the day shooting a few sunsets and catching those last few rays of sun. It may not be around the next day, or even a few. I took a suet block and a few scoops of sunflower seed out and knew right away how cold it was, but was surprised when I turned my computer on. A friend who works in a bakery asked me to go and get her and her coworkers a dozen doughnuts from another bakery none of them had tried. I will use the trip to stop and take a swim and walk indoors at the YMCA. It is close to a forty mile drive round trip, so I always try to combine my fun. I plan on going outside again late in the afternoon, playing with the light I enjoy having this week. I hope all in the cold warm thoughts and those of you in temperate climates I have envy.
