    I've seen robins here for a few days now....yea!!!
    My seedlings are outside "hardening off" but I'll probably have to bring them back in by this next week. Still, spring is almost here!

    LOL, at first your '21 days' took me aback - I've had April 25th in my mind. But that's because that's our last average frost day around here - you can tell what's been on my brain. :D Wowzers, it really is only 21 days 'till spring. Yeay!

    Got up to just under 60° here today. Spent part of the afternoon cleaning an old box stall in the barn and hanging a mixture of woven wire, snow fence, and plywood from the ceiling to the stall walls to make a pen for the turkeys we want to get this spring. Did some other chores I've been too busy to get to and now I'm cooking. Good, busy Spring (almost) day.

    Spring is quite a ways off, its been in the teens here for a high plus windchill making it colder yet. I cant say we have much of a spring it goes from winter to summer directly for the most part.

    Nothing on the trees here yet. The air does have a different feel to it now. You can just tell the worst is behind us, even when it does occasionally still get cold.
