June Flowers

        Our neighbor Totoro! He and his friends are making all the flowers and trees grow. I suspect they are making it rain too, because they are close allies with Slammy.

It's Alive, Part II

It's Alive

(45 degrees, cloudy and calm at 9:00 am)

Many of the flowers are coming back to life, and the roses and trees are leafing out, though the snowberry is still bare and most of the herbs are dormant.
Here are some of the many green things coming up.
Grass
Garlic and onions

Chives and daffodils

April Flowers

Hello March!

It's a snowy start to the month when spring begins.  These pictures look dark, but it's actually very bright out there, which makes my inner gardener wake up and think about digging in the dirt.

The gardens are not ready for planting.

But they will be soon!
It's 34 degrees, snowing and winds calm at 9:30 am.

Tracks in the snow

What are they?




Crabapple

The crabapples are hanging on for the birds.

I Spy a Chickadee


See if you can find the Chickadee in this photo taken by JJ.

Thank you everyone for your comments, I didn't realize comment moderation was enabled, so I just read them today.

It's 19 degrees and overcast at about 11:00 am.  Low of -3 last night.  Snow is expected tonight.

Snow snow everywhere

It's another snowy winter.  I thought maybe we would be living in Hawaii by now, but since we're still here, why not continue the blog?

The moose have been visiting us, and I put up some pictures on Lounging About.  The birds have also been here, and I'm feeding them sunflower seeds.

The temperatures have been fluctuating a lot, and the weather goes from pleasantly fresh and moist to uncomfortably icy and dry.  The trees sure look pretty when it's cold enough for the snow to stick to them though.  The crabapple tree was all bent over in this picture, like a weeping cherry, but it sprang back up miraculously when it thawed out.

It's 37 degrees and lightly drizzling at 11:00 am.
