Thankfully, the ice has melted and this weekend is sunny and quite
warm. The clocks sprung forward last night ready to welcome true
Spring in a couple of weeks.
Today we will be heading into the garden which is now snow and ice free, and
even has green grass, to do some much needed clean up.
Last week's ice storm cause quite a bit of damage to many of our shrubs and
smaller trees, breaking branches and littering the garden with debris.
Even the metal pole of our patio umbrella snapped under the weight of the
ice and snow - yes should have closed it but used it for sheltering the firewood on
the table close to the back door.
Our fireplace has been our best friend this long, unusually cold Winter.
Yesterday we ordered a new umbrella, looking forward to raising it to
welcome what hopefully will be a beautiful Spring.
Hope the weather is warming up your way. . . . . . . . Spring is coming!
