I still had berries for the birds
The ground cover had begun to turn green
The Daylilies were beginning to poke up through the dirt
The Daffodils were sprouting
The Iris were making their appearance
I planted lettuce in my wagon
And the cats were happy to hear the Catnip was growing once again
The tree tops in the evenings were so pretty as the sun set
And then Mother Nature pulled a nasty trick on us . . . as she's been known to do in Nebraska
It snowed . . .
and it snowed,
and it snowed . . . and then the power went out
We spent most of yesterday either at the cafe in the local grocery store, or huddled in blankets with candles burning at home . . . for 13 hours, as the temperature in the house went down and the temperature in the refrigerator went up. After 11 inches of snow, we can now see the pavement!
The lettuce seeds are well insulated and will be watered naturally in the next few days
Such is life, in Nebraska . . .
