There is this strange thing appearing all over my yard. It is brown and matted but I do believe it is ground! I could be wrong, though, since it has been so long since I've seen said item.
We've managed to have a few daytime temps above freezing and the snow is gradually shrinking away. It is possible that spring may actually arrive.
The chickens are enjoying getting to be out and about after being cooped up all winter. (Keeping chickens really brings that saying to reality.)
The Compost area and cold frame are peeking out.
Bulbs are sprouting everywhere the snow has melted.
And we have tapped a couple of trees to experiment with maple syrup making.
While I enjoyed my winter reading sabbatical (knocking off a good portion off my reading list) it is good to be able to get moving again. Planting isn't too far off- as long as the weather cooperates!
Well, I'm off to make some cheesy potato soup for dinner, empty my sap buckets and collect eggs! It is good to be back in the blogging world and it is good that Aslan has returned to Narnia... er... Michigan!
