Sping Time

It has been a while since we have been on here.  The winter has been a long one.  The snow came in early November and the last of it finally left the yard this week. Although our friends a few hours south of us woke up to more of the white stuff this morning.  We had close to 9 feet over the winter.

There are always a few things that mean Spring to me:
  • Cows ready to go to grass - hopefully this happens in the next 10 days as the feed yard is getting pretty empty.

  • The planting of crops and flowers - I finally got the flower beds cleaned this morning and bought a few flowers at the local green house.  Although it will be a week or more before I dare plant them - temperatures forecasted to be below 0C for the next 5 days.

  • Stacy's birthday - We have celebrated in the sunshine and the snow, today is in between.

  • The Kentucky Derby - One of our all time favorite sporting events.  Maybe one day we can be in KY to see it live.
I hope that Spring has arrived at your house, with lots of moisture to bring on the growing season.
