Oh my gosh. what a difference a few days make!! We had couple of warm (50-60 degree) days with abundant sunshine, and the snow and ice are GONE. yesterday was fantastic - mildly muddy, work-outdoors-in-a-tshirt weather. I (Maggie) tried my hand at pruning some of our fruit trees. I have NO idea what I was doing; I hope the poor trees forgive me!


The other interesting thing was this: We could literally see the plants growing greener as the day went on. A preliminary garden inspection showed that the parsley, thyme, mountain mint, sage, and of course weeds (dandelions in particular) were greening up. A few hours later, we SWORE they were even greener. Plants are so amazing!! They grow so quickly given a little water and a lot of sunshine....
