Beautiful Weather

We have lucked out this weekend with the weather.  It has been in the high 60's and sunny.  It isn't even spring yet and this weather has been with us for quite some time.

We took the dog for multiple walks, we worked on the yard, pruned the mulberry tree, and prepped the gardens.  I just laid five bags of mulch and am making the flower garden around the birch tree larger.

This is why girls like me don't get manicures.   The dirt just gets ground into your skin and nails.

I don't know what the spring and summer are going to bring because winter never came this year.  However, I have heard that we won't have enough ground water, because there wasn't enough snow melt.  It also means a lot of ticks and bugs, because it never got cold enough for them to die this winter.

So, what do you think the spring and summer seasons have in store for us?   I think it is going to be hot and dry - just my guess!

I can't believe you are doing all that yard work with your rings on! I don't even keep my jewelry on to apply lotion. Do you at least wear gloves? I know that even if I wear gloves, the dirt gets under there somehow and ground into my skin and fingernails.

I hope for your sake that even if the summer is hotter than usual, it's not dry. Dry always sucks rocks.

Yes, I wear my rings...I know bad, right??? I can't move mulch with gloves on, nor can I plant potatoes. Therefore, no gloves!
