I am ready….

I am ready to plant the Spring garden! I have bags of garden soil to jumpstart the plants and freshen up last year’s soil.

We have a threat of below freezing temperatures over the next few nights and I am waiting until the weekend to actually plant cabbage, collards, and the seeds of lettuce and arugula.

Daffodils are blooming, though. They can survive the light frost.

My young buckeye trees are budding! They should survive the light frost unharmed, too.

The garden centers are ready and I am excited with the beautiful plants such as this tropical geranium or Pelargonium. I might have to plant a few of these!

And large clumps of fragrant hyacinths are beautiful!

Every morning someone wakes me up at dawn. It begins with quiet whimpering and wining. Then a paw or two under the door.

If he has to really, really go out immediately he will bark a few times!

Look at all that gray hair! He is now middle-aged. My sweet old man!
