Do you believe it?!

Happy St. Pat's Day

I love spring. I can hardly believe how wonderful the weather is. Warmer temps and bright sunshine are making me feel light and springy! Can you believe that we made it through the long winter?? Reading the temps in Fairbanks today at -25F goodness that's cold. Another month and they'll be feeling springy too!!!

The robins are singing up a storm here and our friendly pileated woodpecker has been back and has carved some new holes into one of the trees on our front lawn. Heard the sound again this morning as he/she calls out!

Heading out the door here shortly. I'm on a mission to get some fresh potting soil to get my new batch of wheat grass growing.

I pulled some heads off the winter-over marigolds and some seeds off the morning glories on the pool fence. Going to check them in the next week or so and see if they'll sprout indoors. If so then I won't need to buy more seed this spring. The morning glories completely covered the fence where we planted them giving us great privacy so the plan is to continue with more of the fence this year. The front half will have beautiful morning glories and the back fence will have the pole beans that did so well there last year. Isn't it great to be planning the summer garden.

I'm anxiously waiting for the first of the dandelions to pop through the lawn. Crazy? Well maybe just a bit but fresh foraged greens like that in my salad or smoothie is wonderful!

Enjoyed my green smoothie this morning and will have a great salad here in a bit. Also, managed my walk this morning! That's 2 days in a row!! Go me!

Off to Canadian Tire to get my planting supplies!

Enjoy this great day. Lift a grew brew for me! Dance a jig or two!!

We're all Irish on a day like this!!

Til again!
