Today is suppose to get up into the 70s, then turn cold next week. When I see the daffodils coming out, the day lilies putting out new growth, the yellow jessamine budding and beginning to bloom; I fear that they will all freeze back when it does turn cold. During the week while I was at work, a bird was building her nest in the blue bird box- hope she is a blue bird. We need the cold, we need a little winter snow and ice!! After the light winter last year, the bugs were awful this past spring, summer and fall. Stink bugs were everywhere and spiders. I'm not ready to shave Augie either. He needs to grow his fur a little bit more. He's growing me a scarf or shawl.
