Sunny skies

The past few mornings have been clear and the days have been mostly sunny and bright. It really lifts the spirits. Even though our morning temperatures are around freezing, the days are warming up nicely, tempting us with thoughts of spring.

White puffy clouds drifted across Sunday afternoon's sky.

I'm itching to get outside and start working on the spring cleanup, but it's still a little too chilly and a little too early. March (which starts next week!) and April will be the time to get started. First up: pruning roses and grape vines.

  2. Keep that weather improving for us in May. Do you have a spare set of pruning shears?

    The WV is very appropiate for you post.

  3. I am itching to get in the garden & clean up, but not this week. Portland, Oregon could have as much as 8 inches of rain in the next 48 hours.

  4. Nice new photo, Walt!

    Blue skies - we are having a bit of a reprieve from winter, too.

    Once the ground dries, I need to walk around back and pick up some tin foil that blew off a casserole I was cooling on my deck! It's been so muddy I have waited :(. Bad girl.
