Well it’s finally March, although it seems that this year is already flying by. Spring is just a mere 20 days away – at least the official first day of Spring. This last week our state was covered in a blanket of white. Some were more like buried in a blanket of white. We did not share in the fun of multiple feet or even inches of the white stuff. We did however manage to receive a nice rain which helped to liven up our pond for all those things down deep under water that are ready for the warmer days to come. I noticed our first kingfisher out fishing the pond just the other day. A bit earlier than usual but a very welcomed sight.
I still feel that Spring is not completely ready to make it way here. Yet it still gives us occasional glimpses of its impending arrival. This morning as I went and filled my many bird feeders, I examined my flower beds throughout my yard. Many of my flowers are peeking out. I want so bad to go and clean out the weathered leaves and such that has accumulated around them. I know that this could be a very bad idea as it is these very leaves that drive me crazy that are keeping these gentle little plants warm. So I keep myself back from doing such things until a later time.
Soon enough the warmer weather will come and then I will be forever going on about the abundance of yard work that I have in front of me. There is always something isn’t there.
The weekend is near. I wish for all of you a pleasant one.
