The weather has been so beautiful lately. Although it is still the middle of February the weather has been like spring. It is weather like this that makes me love living in Oregon. Monday, Gary and I went out to get the garden ready for spring planting, our little puppy ( who is no longer really little at 40 plus pounds) enjoyed "helping" us as well, although messy, watching her dig with such gusto made us laugh. The little bulbs popping up around the yard, as well as the heather and plum tree in bloom where so happy looking I had to post their pictures to the blog. I love following the seasons, and, as a gardener, love watching every cycle the garden presents- one of the most hopeful things to me, is seeing all the spring surprises that pop-up to remind me that spring and summer are near, I look forward to another year of gardening.
