I Can Hardly Believe......
That the pussy willows are coming out in JANUARY!!
The weather this winter has been so strange. Mind you, St. John's got about 35 cm of snow yesterday but we were unscathed. The grass is green and I'm sure the plants just don't know what to do about it all. No doubt we will get snow before winter is over but I'm happy with the situation as it stands today.
I've been in a funny mood lately. I don't seem to know what to do with myself and it's not because there aren't things I could be doing. Is this what's called winter malaise? I think this weather makes me think we are in April and yet I can't get out in the garden because it's really winter. The ground is extremely wet as we've had so much rain and drizzle. I've had to lay down boards coming up to the deck because it's so muddy.
Himself arrived back home on the 8th. Still sick with fever and weakness. We went to the doctor earlier this week and he's on more antibiotics. The rash is gone thankfully. Needless to say he's very fed up with it all.
Lots of birds at the feeders today.
Can you find the Junco in this picture. A good job of camouflage.
The Paper Whites I planted at Xmas are now in bloom and giving off a lovely scent.
Cats just hanging out.
