Another week, another storm (or two).

We came through the snow fine: everything stayed up and the heat stayed on. Counts as a win.

I am tired of ice though. Even with my super awesome overalls that block the wind and wet (I have legit done several dances as I demonstrate my love for the features of my overalls).

It was so cold this morning, I couldn’t get into all the houses; the doors were frozen shut.

And I decided the heck with it. If I can’t take pictures of everything, I’m going to take pictures of nothing.

(slight exaggeration, I did take a few pictures before I hit the frozen-doors house).

But I decided I wanted some warmer pictures. So we’re going back to last year to look at things we have to look forward to. (Yes, we’re going back to look forward. It’s logical).

So enjoy these ice-less pictures.

Last March, the sweet cherry trees were blooming and the fig cuttings were leafing out,

In April the plum trees were blooming and the first cucumbers were planted; the lilacs were blooming and the sweet cherries were cherrying.

We even had plants outside. I think it’s cauliflower in the foreground, but it could just as easily be not cauliflower.
