“Some old-fashioned things like fresh air and sunshine are hard to beat. In our mad rush for progress and modern improvements let's be sure we take along with us all the old-fashioned things worth while.” Laura Ingalls Wilder

Entertaining Spring

We're having a rapid meltdown this week.  The raised garden beds are visible as snow retreats revealing straw covering strawberries, rhubarb and asparagus.  Mucky and yucky!  The house has stayed warm overnight (in the high 60's) without burning much wood.  Hubby has ditched his thermals of late, I did that a month ago ;)

I hear the robins have returned to town.  Not here in the foothills, but soon.

Saturday I plan on planting some seeds indoors for my mini greenhouse. 

Oh my .. and with the time change this weekend, won't it be nice to have sunset and hour later?

Mama moose, spied out my bedroom door recently.

I'm hoping the rhubarb I planted last year will be big enough to do something with this year. Salad spinners... don't love an extra thing to wash, but they are handy for drying greens, for sure.

Lots of signs of Spring in my garden this week Mrs. Mac. The weather is turning warmer at last. The daffodils are blooming and I think we might just be going to have an early Spring here in England :)Good luck with your seed sowing.
