shhhh | spring might be here

[amos enjoying some time in the park]
I know all around the world we have been having some crazy weather! I am thankful for friends that let me come visit them in warmer climates [basically the desert] and thankful for the few days here and there of sunny skies. I just need to remember to cut back on my vitamin D when I stay outside all day! It's so nice to see so much GREEN - it was very much the theme when I downloaded the photos I took today...

This nice weather afforded me some time in the backyard - cleaning, scrubbing, re-planting and planting new. Every year I plant a container full of mint for the dogs - Jesse is especially fond of it and it's low enough to be self serve. This year Kirk and I found some new varieties  of mint: Apple and Orange - they smell wonderful. Also this year I decided to plant some herbs - I am just keeping my fingers crossed that we are safe from frost now.
