Although it was a dreary gray day today, I saw sure signs of spring.
A pileated woodpecker busily working on the dead tree next door. (click photo to enlarge)
Tulips peeking up in the foundation bed behind the house.
Muddy boots in the muddy chicken yard.
My birthday present in action. This will be the ONLY vacuum cleaner I will ever request as a gift. It sucks up the leaves, and chops them up, ready to compost. This will be perfect in the perennial gardens, where the leaves get caught in the shrubs.
Spring is on the way....
