I love this time of the year. It gets warmer; the trees grow back their leaves; the garden starts to grow all kind of vegetables, herbs, and fruit plants; the wildlife gets ready for preparing the nurseries for their young ; and the girls can stay longer outside, because the sun sets much later.
After a few cool days below freezing point, the warmth of Spring is coming back, tomorrow. For the next couple of days, I have plans to get the greenhouse back in shape. Kevin and I talked about getting a wooden frame under the greenhouse. It would be a little bit higher. And due to the ground constantly shifting, the new frame makes the greenhouse frame sturdier, again. The ground needs new mulch and we need some shelves for some potted plants. It will be some work, but it is worth it. Having fun in the Spring Sun.
This evening, I watched the sunset on the deck. It was a beautiful day in the mid 60s (19ºC). If the wind hadn’t been this breezy, it would have been much better. Our Bradford Pear trees finally begin to bloom. I’ve noticed a couple of young green leaves as well. The next few days, I will enjoy the outdoors. This upcoming weekend, it suppose to get cooler. And we also might get some snow, next week.
After several cloud-covered and a rainy day, it was nice to see the Sun for a change. Unfortunately, the sky was still cloudy last night. So, we had no chance to see the “biggest” Moon of this year. After seeing the Lunar Eclipse last month, I’m not too sad about it either. This morning, the sky cleared up. And it also warmed up nicely during the day. I used this opportunity to capture photos of Spring slowly rolling into North Texas.
When it rains, I go and capture photos in the backyard. 😉 The Bradford Pear trees are almost there. They show signs, it can take only a couple to a few days, before they’ll begin to bloom. Our broccoli plants are growing well. And I had to mix some pink into the game. The hyacinth just look lovely in all that brown/beige/grayish February rainy day.
