creating with spirit & enthusiasm…often with great results

Winter, it’s probably time….

…to say “Good~bye”!

My poor chickens have been locked up since mid-November.  Although their ‘yard’ is still covered in several inches of condensed snow and ice I decided yesterday that they had to be let out.

They stuck pretty close to their house where they could find a wee bit of bare ground but they were happy.

…see my little naked-neck, Penelope?…she’s so sweet!

This is our garden…still sleeping under the heavy blanket of winter…

…and our sweet little orchard with raspberries along the end…

There were a few rocks from our raised beds peaking out…

but, we’ll still be waiting a while for anything good to come from this ground

Now is the time to get our seeds ordered and the garden planned out…pretty soon I can even get some of those seeds started inside the house.  I won’t let myself think of spring yet though…we’ve had some fresh snow just about every day for the past couple of weeks…it’s too early to dream of spring.  {soon though…soon}

Mr. Cash still likes the snow…
