We have been so spoiled with this April like weather here in the Ozarks of Missouri, and totally Not the norm for this area in February. I feel for all of you with the snow storms as we have yet to have any wintry weather this season.
So warm here that it even feels like spring has arrived to stay-the grass is growing, the daffodils are 4" inches high now, pretty soon buds will be opening up on the trees and bushes too. The birds are just singing their little hearts out.
I worked outdoors in my garden area all day yesterday and the amazing thing was as evening approached the ponds came alive with the spring sounds. They call them peepers never knew for sure who they are but I think they are little frogs. Hoping when the cold returns everything does not die off.
Today we are to hit 80 degrees or close to it-just amazing as we did that last Sunday too.
I have been keeping up with my 3 mile walks except for yesterday as I worked from 9am to 3 in the afternoon, doing garden work and also unloading and stacking firewood. So I put in a good days work, and feel good about it.
I set up another arched trellis-this one for the orange trumpet vines that the hummingbirds love, and also did some other things I didn't get to in the fall-I am still finding wisteria vines everywhere and working on getting those wrapped into the trellis before they start leafing out.
The wind had died down yesterday so hubs took the boat out on the lake with friends to go fishing. He brought back 7 nice size blue catfish-mmmm good eats we are going over to a friends tonight for a fish fry-he makes the best I have ever eaten.
Looks like the strong winds have not returned this morning so am thinking of setting up my big dutch oven outdoors in my firepit area I built last year and bake us up a pie to take to the fish fry.
Enjoy your Sunday!
