too good to be true

Every year in this area, it seems like we have a short few days of spring-like weather.  This year however it has been nearly a month and looks to be so for another two weeks. The 6 inches of solid ice have turned into  mere patches with slush, mud, and running water.

I can get down the mountain with the car !  Later today I will try to get up the driveway with a half load of wood and a fridge.  I think I can do it!

The mountains are nearly snowless and springs that normally start to run in may are already running.  Little waterfalls are alive and rushing.

The weather has been so nice that today I went down and worked in the community garden that this year will be turned into a flower garden for the town park. As an experiment and just because I couldn’t help myself I cleared one bed, put in some Chard, Spinach and Pea’s.  The bed I covered with the plastic beg insulation came in last fall.   Hopefully the weather will stay about how it is, long enough to get a few little leaves.  If winter returns and all is lost, no harm done.
