Yesterday was a day for change. In the weather category. We went from sunny and 72 to biting wind with temps dropping by the seconds.
Fortunately, I chose to walk my mile in the in-between hour where there was no wind and all I needed was my work hoodie.
I decided on The Hill route as it is the less traveled road…visions of Robert Frost anyone?!!
The guys are furiously scraping, piling hauling manure out of pens to fields. And cattle trucks are creating traffic jams on our country roads. The cattle that have been on wheat pasture are being taken into pens, and pen cattle are going out to pasture.
The tractors are being revved up so the Planting can begin. Sprayers are fine tuned and ready to zap the bindweed. Seed corn has been ordered and is waiting in neatly stacked piles to be poured into the planters.
It’s official. Spring is right around the corner and March Madness does NOT refer to basketball exclusively!!! Intensity is in the air!
Also, I took pics of blooms. That was providential because I can guarantee that those blooms are history.
The forsythia has been in bloom for a week or two…bye bye.
The perennially STUPID apricot tree bloomed 3 weeks ago!! THREE!!! Bye bye.
The peach and apple trees were threatening to pop out with color but after a long talk, I may have convinced them to procrastinate another week. I pray.
Gogi plants are budding out…have no idea if this late storm will stunt them, but I’m pleased that they have survived and the cuttings have thrived!
Today?!!! We have near blizzard conditions. I can’t see my horsemen from the kitchen window. Arghhh! Back to knitting.
