Fabulous weather again today. In a burst of outdoor productivity, I raked all the locust pods from the fall and storm detritus into ten – yes, ten! – piles. I was going to leave them to deal with tomorrow, but I’m a goalpost-mover, so I moved them tonight. The way I see it, all the lawn trash makes for good hole-filler and possible future compost pile starter.
In other productivity news,Tony and I surveyed the damage in our back acreage (there’s a lot – we have some chainsaw work ahead of us), and we picked a couple of potential saplings for transplanting. So there you have it – the mundane occurrences of a Monday in an atypical March. It’s refreshing to be outside getting stuff done so early in the year.
The horses have also been enjoying the warmth – and fresh greens. I took these pictures today – look at my post from 3/16 to see how much things have changed in four days. It sure feels like summer, even though it’s still technically winter.
