Poppies!

When the poppies start blooming... I forget any other flowers... I've even begun to use them as a winter cover crop...

Personally, I'm a big fan of lots of variation... seems like I'm seeing lots of subtle in-between colours...










Even starting to see hues of pastels.... sadly... the camera simply can not do these beauties justice!

And... Trying to get any kind of picture depth? Really can't get the long picture... unless.... I post a pic that takes up the entire screen... let's give it a try...

Ok... click this one... The colour bleeds away in the sun... but still... pretty.

New section of vegetable garden going in... remember those piles of manure that I posted?
The manure did the work of killing the vines and loosening the soil... now... turn with shovel and plant beans and tomatoes...

Another Early Spring

It's another early Spring here, and my heart goes out to all the people living in blizzard country.

We set records in February for heat... 5 days of 80 ° +.  The previous record was like 2 days....  3 of those days of 80+  broke all-time records... definitely global warming here...

Snow Day

It started snowing early.... First snow since 2014....

The cats weren't too sure about that white stuff at first...

 This towhee doesn't seem to mind...

 Cardinal seems happy to eat snow covered chenopodium seeds...




And these cuties seem happy with the white stuff as well.

Apparently.... Governor Deal declared a state of emergency due to us getting an inch of snow....
I saw video of the interstate traffic on the news this morning... looked like a still shot... glad I wasn't out there!
