Much needed…warm weather

love winter..

I can’t say I dislike winter….when it snows everything looks so pretty but then this winter has been pretty nice so far.  Temperatures are in the 50s today and the SUN is shinning.  Unusual for January in Ohio.  The pond is frozen but only a thin layer and the fish aren’t moving much although I […]

Spring & New Water Lilies

I’m not certain what happened to Spring here but I think it may have been here but we missed it……yesterday little snow flakes were appearing and in a couple days its going to be in the 70s.  What’s up with that??? But even though we’re all anxious for the weather to turn nice so we […]
