Spring Trellis

Well, I see spring is on the way. There's a bit of green poking through even up here in the Northeast. I guess our long, frigid nightmare is over. Of course, around here the disappearing  snow always reveals lots of jobs to do. Spring can be a big guilt trip for me. Lack of snow can leave an ugly world for a week or so. As Kramer said to Jerry after Cosmo had been smoking a pipe for a week straight and his teeth turned brown and his skin wrinkly, "Look away, I'm hidieos."
The snow is off the deck.
The grill is near firing up.
However, a blanket of white still covers the garden.
But...
Birdhouses are being hung.
Fertilizer being spread.
The lawn tractor is getting a tune-up.
Things are looking up.
Finally.

  1. Welcome to the world again! We are in the same situation but some forward looking neighbors have planted magnolias. A bit of color, even for a short duration, is a welcome sight.

  11. New meaning to "the snow is off the deck". Sort of like "the blush is off the rose". :-)

  12. Finally! We are in the midst of recoating a bit of foundation wall that was letting water in when the ground was frozen - work never ends in an old building.

  14. TexWisGirl is welcome to come to our house! We're back into needing to mow weekly. A two hour job.
    Glad, though, you're seeing signs of a thaw. Welcome back to the world of growing things.

  17. The reflection in the window adds a certain woo woo feel to the photo. Makes you wonder what's going on in that house.
