It's the time of year when the weather can be counted on for one one thing - being unpredictable. While we're back to cold and dreary (with a HUGE dumping of snow expected today), we had a beautiful, spring-like start to the week.
So on Tuesday, while I was waiting for work items to come in, I decided to get a head start on some yard work. Normally, property management hires a company to take care of the leaves. But last fall, they only did it for a few weeks, then stopped well before the season ended. As a result, my front gardens were buried under a thick blanket of leaves. It won't hurt them - it probably provided a bit of extra insulation - but it was time to get it all cleared out.
Under the watchful eye of my Snoopervisor, I got to it.*
It's still early (as I said, it's already turned cold again), but from what I saw, things are definitely looking good
I still have to get my winter sow jugs together (I'm really behind) and I'm dithering on buying some new plants from Breck's and Vesey's... Not to mention I have a pile of points saved up for when the garden centre opens in May... Oh Spring... you bring such potential!
* I know I said he wasn't going out until the end of the week, but by Tuesday his energy levels were through the roof. It was let him out or have my house destroyed! Everything is healing up nicely though.
