The Winds.....The Rain...Spring Time Near!

The winds have arrived here. We had been enjoying a warm front the past few days. Time to get out in the yard and do some cleaning up. Preparing those garden plots and flower beds for spring. Now the winds have arrived, a cold front appearing. One gets that spring feeling and can not wait to see those first flower popping up.
Even through it is windy, cleaning the area can still be down. So, today I will be continuing the task.
Planning an herb garden and a flower bed. Cleaning out an old over grown area.

So this blog is back in section. Growing season and garden visitation will be coming back. The Winter break was nice. We enjoyed the outdoor activities as well as the little indoor flowering views.
Back to the out doors and yard view. Oh I am looking forward to the Lilacs this year. Oh that Smell......

Is Phil right?

Still cold here. We have some days of warmth, however the cold returns. I heard that Phil did not see his shadow on the 2nd of February. That is suppose to mean, spring will arrive early.
Heard his track record is not good, about 30% right. So will we have an early spring time? I going to bet yes. It seems that Phil has been wrong on the late arrivals. He seems to not see his shadow about 30% of the time. So just maybe that is when he is right.

We all would love to see Spring's early arrival. That will give us more time to get the soil ready and see the flowers in full form. I love the spring foliage and look forward to the lilacs as well as other fresh smells. Even the tulips and Cherry Blossom are great to see. It has been a few years since we have seen the Cherry Blossoms in full bloom on time.

St Patty's parade would be nice to view in warmer weather. Standing in the Rain and cold just is not my idea of fun viewing the parade.

Well, we usually have a snow event on Valentines Day . So I think that will happen for us this year. Today the weather is bitterly cold. Temps in the low 30's. I am staying warm by the fire and drinking my coffee.

What are you doing and how is the weather forecast in your neck of the country?
