the GREEN month!
It may not be green where you live just yet
but it won't be long until that beautiful
refreshing color shows it's pretty face.
Here on the farm we are surrounded by
beautiful green fields of
here and there the lawns and gardens
are showing signs that spring isn't far off.
Yesterday we had tornado 'watches'
and 'warnings' from late afternoon
Fortunately we only had high winds
and 1/4 inches of rain
but tornadoes hit down here and there
and destroyed 60% of the
small town of Harveyville KS.
We found out this evening that our friends
son and his family had the roof
torn off their home yesterday.
They were all safe.
This is a month early
so hopefully this isn't a sign
of what's to come this year.
On a brighter note...
I've got my vegetable garden
planned out and down on paper
and hubby has made the garden boxes.
Now we just need to get them in the garden...
fill them with compost
and wait for the weather to warm up.
I started a list for the perennials I'd like
to plant this spring
and the annuals I'd like
to plant in pots.
My lists usually end up larger than my
pocket book can handle but I'm sure
I'm not the only one who
Since there's nothing pretty to show you
in my gardens I thought I'd share a
few photo's I found on the Internet.
I love the photo at the top
of this post and how about the garden
sheds above and below!

I love the salvaged windows in the shed above.

This time of the year in the country critters start
moving. I suppose it's mating season for some
and other's are just moving from winter quarters.
I found a big fat skunk body at the end of the
picket fence the other morning.
Shep must have caught it off guard
before it had a chance to spray.
I feel bad for the skunk
but this is a fact of life in the country.
Most critters stay clear of our farm
because of Shep but some can't
resist the tantalizing smell of chickens.
Even skunks and possums
like eggs ;)

This week hopefully we'll be hauling home
mulch and compost for the garden...
I can't wait to get my hands in the dirt!
How about you...have you got plans
for your gardens this spring?
