I was finally able to do my first garden tour without wearing knee high boots! Even though I was snowed on while doing it, there were signs of spring all over the property.If you look very closely you will see daffodils poking through the ground above. I knew once the snow was gone something would be alive under there!
By the greenhouse door the ground cover is still green. The gravel after snowplowing can be removed later. The two chickens that didn't make it in before the snow fell seemed to have survived also.
We don't know what was under the deck , but the dogs managed to dig a big hole by the steps in search of something that gave off a powerful scent. I was just glad it wasn't a skunk. JEJ suspects Annie and Shelby were after a mouse. It is amazing how you miss that smell of dirt. These tulips have a bit of a head start. We forced them in the greenhouse and hope to see blooms soon. I saw a robin, the dogs tracked in mud, and JEJ started finishing the truck port. Signs of spring are all around! I better order some garden seeds!
