Waiting for spring continued...

 
 
 
We have been truly blessed and our weather has been rather mild this winter.
 
  I was planning to experiment in the veggie plot; I read this article about burying household compost this month and then planting peas on top..  The theory is that the decomposing compost will heat the soil and give you a head start on early spring crops. 
 
 
 
And then we woke up to this today....
 
 
...and it hasn't stopped snowing all day.  It actually turned out to be a lovely lazy Sunday day.  We took the dogs for a long walk...
 
 
 
 
....the horses didn't venture out of their shelters all day....
 
 
 
 
...and we build a fire and stayed indoors and had a nice leisurely Sunday afternoon...still waiting for spring.

  1. Oh no! The sun came out here this morning, just long enough to tease. As soon as I went looking for my gardening boots the rain came back down.

    1. Snowing again today - I, like you, will just stay indoors and read my gardening books and plan.
