the magic hint of spring

before it is rudely pulled out from under us for another two months, led me to do foolish things in the garden today. I had visitors for the weekend and party for my birthday yesterday so it has been a very busy, social couple of days. My visitors left and then the pirate was invited on a walk up Mt Taylor. I was alone. sweet sweet alone.

Before the pirate was out of sight I was in the backyard and working on making the vegie garden fence. The dogs don't appreciate the need to keep out of a vegie patch so a fence had to be built. I was halfway through before a power tool crisis stopped work. Devestation. It was all looking so productive, and so promising and I want a vegie garden. NOW. I bought this house a year ago and a year is too long to be without a good vegie patch.

so I planted seeds. beautiful nastursiums and snap peas. I know, I know - way too soon and it will surely end in tears, but the sun was warm and the birds charmed me. Who knows, they might actually grow and then survive a frost or 10.
