Sunday was a most beautiful day. We spent the day out in the sun enjoying our little corner of the world. The fruit trees that I planted a year ago are budding and blooming.
This nectarine tree is thickly covered with pink buds. The peaches are trying to catch up. The cherries and apple trees are just starting to get tiny buds. We were careful to plant varieties that would cross-pollinate successfully.
New flowers are appearing almost daily. They are such an exciting surprise. Many flowers were planted by the original owners of our cabin and we discover new ones each season.
Lavender and purple are my favorite colors.
Another view of that habitat. I wasn't able to get a clear shot of 'who lives deep in there'.
Cort laying down catching some rays instead of trotting all about making sure that everything is in order. That is his job, you know.
Jerry mowed most of the front yard. He left a long strip for me to high-line the horses out for some extra grazing.
We had horses and mules spread out all over the property grazing since the ground had dried from the previous heavy rains. More blossoms on the plum tree.
It was so refreshing to spend the day outdoors working on plants and with the animals.
Then came Monday, and the cold weather returned. Hail, freezing temperatures and frost. I covered my fruit trees with plastic to protect from the freeze. I believe it worked!
Tuesday it was cold and rainy up here. I worked down in the valley an hour from here and it was sunny but a bit 'brisk'.
This morning the schools delayed opening an hour due to the icy road conditions. Brrrr, I have been chilled all day.
According to the folks that earn good money to predict such things, it should start warming up again tomorrow. I am hoping that they are correct.
