The wildlife in the yard is beginning to wonder when we're going to "civilize" the yard. Me too.
I'm afraid this is going to be a very long weekend at our house as we stare mournfully out at the massive pile of dirt that must be hauled away before new, lucious dirt can be brought in. And once that happens, we can, maybe, start doing some planting.
Yesterday, the forecast for next week was rain, rain and more rain. Today, the forecast has been changed to a teeny bit of rain and some sun and cloud. We're going with the latter. If there is some good weather, we can start to see things happen quickly and we can start the process of rebuilding our yard and garden.
To be honest, the prospect of getting things going is intoxicating. As a gardener, it's hard to not be able to do much now that the weather is taking a turn for the good. I know that this is really the earliest anyone can really plant, but still and all, we could be preparing the beds, choosing plants and hardening them off.
You know, busy stuff that needs to be done and would get us outside and using all those large muscle groups.Way more fun than working out in a gym, if you ask me.
This squirrel loves that I've resumed feeding the birds now that things have dried out enough to get near the feeders.
He's the busiest one around as he tries to figure out how to get into the feeders, then finally gives up and scavenges what gets spilled on the ground. He's looking pretty healthy so I think he's got a system going that works for him!
