Fortunately, as the week progressed each day got a little warmer giving me a chance to get outside to work in the garden a little. And boy, does my garden need some TLC. As you can see, I haven't been out here much in the past few months and it sure shows. There is much to be done.
It's hard to get to everything during the school year. However, with this lovely weather I have managed to spend a few hours getting flower beds cleaned out. The snowdrops and crocus are making their appearance.
And buds are popping out on the trees.
This is my neighbor's pussy willow. Don't you think the catkins look like little fuzzy caterpillars?
I saw my first robin of the season at my mom's house yesterday and snapped this picture from my car across the street. This fellow and his mate were searching for worms in the grass.
Today the rain clouds began rolling back in. Thunderstorms are predicted for tomorrow. I know that Winter is not quite through with us yet but the wind is a little more gentle and Spring is definitely on it's way.
