Not Dead Yet

April 18, 2009

70 degree weather is something to celebrate this time of year, especially since there’s a chance of snow on Wednesday. But, hey, welcome to Northwest Indiana. It’s time to walk the yard and find out who survived, and who called it a day. I count myself glad to be among the living. And that goes for Willi, too. He gave the mini-tiller a workout today. I believe his theory is “If you can’t grow a good patch of grass, plow it under and plant tomatoes.”  Works for me.


We’re a little early for planting and figure we will need to till again, but there’s something that nourishes the soul when you get out in the dirt. At least for us anyway. In the mean time, the Daffodils, Jonquils, and Hyacinth are blooming. The tulips are coming on and the Trillium are peeking out, which means that Jack in the Pulpit isn’t far behind.


Seems a little late to be welcoming in the new year, but I finally feel as though it’s here. All in good time, I guess. And boy, am I ready.

    Good luck with the tomatoes. We have a few daffodils, some paper narcissus, and violets in the yard. Maybe spring has come to northwest Indiana after all. 🙂

    Thank you, Molly. We’ll save some for you.

    Spring does seem late this year. But that only means the grass does not need mowed as of yet. Good thing brcause my mower battery is doing an experiment at the high school.
