Spring is Coming

Even though we in the Northeast have yet to have any significant winter weather (knock on wood), starting tomorrow the days are getting longer. Looking forward to Spring. :D

I thought I was the only one who was thinking that today. Today was the shortest day/longest night of the year. We're starting to climb our way back to June 21st now!

First garden seed catalog arrived today in the mail. A sure sign spring is coming.

Not sure what's going on with this weather. Getting gentle rains and nice warm weather. Pastures and lawn are greening up. Probably have to mow the lawn in a couple of days, perhaps on or before Christmas day.
I have an excuse. CRS.

No, you and several of us were thinking the same thing... :D

Third week of November is when I last mowed. At that time, I said, "That's it. No more this year." Now the back yard is looking tall...

Thought it was spring, had to mow my front yard here in Central IL last week. The neighbor was out mowing today and went 30 miles west to Bloomington people were out mowing and trimming shrubs. What an interesting start to winter.
