After a revolting weekend and a Monday where I taught my students the word 'soggy' today was A fabulous day.
It was five degrees when we woke up- 5!!!
So I let the chooks out and told them it was the first day of the season. They looked as excited as I was but it could have been the slugs and worms rather than the work on their part.
OK, even I have to admit the photographic evidence is pretty lame but I took four wheelbarrow-loads of leaves out of there and pruned all the fruit trees and roses. Well, more lopped and chopped than pruned but same result, right?
Even though it's not the end of the cold weather and I'm steeling myself that there will most probably be more snow it felt good to get out and do something for the first time this season.
And the chooks had a ball, to boot!
Roll on Spring!
