Yes, but it's still a lonnngggggg ways away!
Nevertheless, H and I took advantage of the relatively comfortable weather outside and decided to do a bit of work outdoors. Specifically, to move the woodpile behind the garage to a rack inside the garage so it would be nice and dry when, not if, the next snowstorm hits.
It felt good to get outside in the fresh air and at the end of an hour, we had transferred all the remaining wood from behind the garage. With lots of bending and lifting, we got our aerobic and weight lifting exercise.
My poor fountain looked so forlorn sitting in the corner of the garage. Bet he can't wait to get out into the sunshine.
Since a lot of the snow had melted in the yard, I took the camera around for a few winter shots.
It's been a while since I've seen these pots. They've been under snow since December 3rd.
I had intended to cut back the Joe Pye Weed, but was surprised by the early snow so I guess I'll have to do it in March or April, weather permitting.
The Annabelle Hydrangea looks good any time of the year. This one will get cut down to six inches in March and will grow like a weed, blooming profusely all summer long.
