Re: Working in the yard.

Sounds like you are having a great day. It was beautiful here too. No sun
but the temps are great. I planted some daffs, virginia bluebells and some
alliums but didn't feel well enough to plant them all. I must be coming down
with something. I only have about 150 more to plant and hopefully the
weather will hold.
