Winter Is Still Here But Getting Ready For Spring

>> Wednesday, March 2, 2011

What I see out my door today....




Do you see my kitty's tracks?


Last night we started our leeks on the plant table. It is amazing how teeny tiny these seeds are. You plant them 1cm ( 1/2 inch) deep. We seeded 6 seeds each square because the germination rate of the seed was lower and then later on we will thin out for the best leek in each square.


We are trying to get what ever frozen fruit in the freezer made into jam or used up in pies, cakes, muffins, custards, and juice. Here is Handsome making strawberry jam and Noah is perched at the laptop on the breakfast counter. This is where I blog from. *grin*



Yes, these are the days that we are caught up in between the two seasons. Finishing up what we need to get done before it gets too busy with spring chores. And at the same time we are getting ready for planting the garden.

Beautiful pictures! Did you get more snow that usual this winter or is this normal for you all?

Thank you Jenn. I took these pictures during a good snow fall. I would say it is about average. Last year we didn't get that much snow but this year it snows and then warms up. Over and over again. So our level of snow goes up and down constantly. We are also higher up the mountain so we are in the snow belt too. *grin*

Looks and sounds like things are going well up by you. Hope the plants grow well for you, and that the snow melts soon. :)

I enjoy the glimpse into your home dear friend...the planting season is already beginning here, but not in the cottage. It is my husband's joy to plant the vegetables...I take care of the beautifying - the flowers :-)

Blessings in His Name,

We've never planted leeks. I probably should since I love them so much.

We have spring here. It came without a bit of warning and earlier than usual. I'm trying to enjoy it while I can. Georgia spring lasts only a few weeks it seems.

Your outside shot is BEAUTIFUL to me!! Funny how the grass is greener...

Maria,

I will try this year to take more pictures of inside the home the Lord has blessed us with. [0=

Mary, your surroundings look beautiful and peaceful. You must take more pictures of the house when it gets warmer.

God bless you, sister.

Mary, these pictures are beautiful. I love the cat tracks. It sounds like you are preparing for spring even as the snow falls. My tulips are sitting up there pretty high and I'm scared for them. I hope they don't get snipped by cold.

Have a great evening!

Beautiful and I have never eaten leeks...wow! what snow! We were out in the high 70's today

Thanks for visiting my blog. :o)

We've had a snowy winter this year in Ontario but now we seem to go from warm days to cold days (like today!). I hope my garden has survived the changes in weather.

Stay warm!

BEautiful! I am thinking about planting seeds now...have never done that indoors before. Learning curve is steep this year, LOL!

Love,
Lori

Oh Mary - can I come and live with you ?!!!!
I LOVE that first photo!!
When I was a young girl I had a huge book that was filled with the most gorgeous photos of Canada.
It is one country my hubby and I would love to see if we ever could afford it..
For now..I get to enjoy it's beauty through wonderful pictures like yours :-)
Thank you..Trish
