HELLO

Winter has been harsh here in Western Massachusetts.  We now have ice-covered snow and glare icy sidewalks.

 One is lost without sand or salt and yesterday I was out, my Son sanded the walkway and the driveway this morning so I can get some errands done.  

HYACINTHS

Have you started yours yet?

I only have white bulbs this year and will stop today at a shop that often still has bulbs for sale and I maybe able to get another color.  All of last years bulbs have been planted so I should see a nice display this spring.

APPRECIATING WOOD

I think everyone can appreciate Trees and the wonderful things that they provide.  This week I have added another couple of things that  they are good for.

 I am now using it in the chicken coops as a dust bath and I did use it for icy pathways.  The chickens have used it and it certainly helped me make my way to the car.

SAMANTHA 

Samantha has grown so much and is a bossy gal.  She and Rosie don’t hang out much anymore.  They both have new friends and are in the same coop.

THE DAYS OF LONG SHADOWS

A blogger friend of mine Bridget from Ireland had  a picture of her shadow and these words with it..  It was so beautiful. In my childhood I remember family members taking about this so I was delighted to be reminding of this saying. The days of the long shadows are leaving us and for me it can’t come soon enough.  This coming weekend they are predicting another big storm.  Looking forward to the short month of February and longer days and the coming of spring.

Many thanks for reading my blog today and I hope you have a wonderful day.
