It was a beautiful weekend. Sunny and clear and cool. A bit cold in the house though, it was 51 degrees inside when we got there. On Saturday it was windy...and the wind chill was making things a bit on the cool side.
Today it was almost perfect. Still blue skies and sunshine and after about three weeks of not seeing that, it was a nice, and much welcome, change.
|Orange leaves and blue sky|
This tree though, still thinks it's Fall I guess. We've had mornings of frost but still, its leaves are holding on strong and they are a vibrant and pretty orange. Against the blue sky, it was like a beautiful postcard image.
The only downside of these weeks of rainy days was that the ground was super saturated. I mean like walking on a muddy sponge saturated. Above is a crawfish mound. They had popped up everywhere that water was or had been standing. All the wet ground meant I didn't get much yard work done...
|Green grass in Winter|
...and as you can see above, the yard is confused too. Things are greening up and in some places, actually growing like Spring! Now I"m sure we will have some pretty serious freezes in February, we always do, but it looks like Spring might perhaps be here quicker this year.
We were able to get some things done around the house, cleaned up something things, organized some more and best of all, we made our "to do" list. All the things we want to do this year at the farm.
We'll share all that in the coming days.
All in all, it was a nice and productive weekend...finally!
