Re: Signs of Spring

We have had 2 days of beautiful cool sunny weather. Yesterday I got my husband to help me move a desert willow, small tree to a better location and a Japanese Black Pine too. We had to dig up a dwarf Hamlin grass in order to place the desert willow so that meant finding a new place for a really large clump of ornamental grass. It was fun to dig in the dirt a little... not that I got to dig much... I still have my right middle finger in a splint, ruptured tendon, and my left arm is still so bruised or might be my rotator cuff that I can't use it much. It has been 2 weeks since I fell on that terrible ice. I am ready for spring.... but we have miserable cold and maybe icy weather coming in tomorrow. UGH.

no spring here.... last night
it was minus 10 degrees then add the wind
chill.... we are in a real cold snap
and are breaking records....  for temps
and longest times under freezing....
burrr... and no relief in sight till end
of next week... sigh.
   Same here.
It was 6 degrees here last night and fiercely windy today.
It's 14  here
tonight but going down to the single digits.  There is not any
predicted for at least a week.  We have had such low temps before,
but usually
in late December or early January.Because of the very mild
through December and early January, many things were
already budding out.  The
worst of it is that there is only about an inch
of snow cover for insulation.
The days are getting longer and we are
supposed to have some dimuinition of
the bitter cold.I guess this has
to be the effects of global warming.
