Spring official "springs" on March 20th. It's now been three weeks past that date & here is a photo of my front yard taken just mere minutes ago.....
This is why I really start longing for spring. One can tell it's coming as the snowbanks are receding. We've been having a lot of rain lately so they are going fast - well relatively speaking of course.
One can see the growing ring around the trees as they soak up the sun's warmth & melt the snow even faster. That nasty, brown, dirty spring looking snow.....
This is what my front garden looks like. I finally did something I swore I would never do as it seemed so, well, so stupid...I shoveled down a snowbank - in spring. This past weekend I spent a good 10-15 minutes shoveling the top of the snowbank off & tossing it on to the lawn to melt. I want to see my spring flowers bloom this year!
But I did find some green things growing. These will turn in to wonderful wild tiger lilies. I love the orange all over my yard. There is a big bunch (this one) that will grow by the boys swing set & another really large bunch that grows right in front of our trailer.
Oh right - winners....I should get around to announcing winners right?
SEE ALL THIS SNOW STILL!?!?!?
And "Mud Season" is here which means I get to wear these stylish green mud boots in my yard. They are my cheap pair and work great. I typically wear them to & from & change when I get to "civilization" (i.e. pavement!)
Thank you to everyone who participated! I have sent e-mails to all the winners. If you didn't get one, be sure to let me know.
