Happy, happy, happy!!!

The weather here has been unbelievable!!!!! High 70's and even up to 80 this week!! It makes me feel so happy to be able to put on shorts and sandals. We have been back to doing our daily walk, which we love, and working out in the yard and garden. Oh, and don't forget lots of dyeing for Stitches South!!

Wayne planted our leyland cypress. Aren't they going to look great??


One of our greenhouses is up and running (this thing works GREAT - I highly recommend them. We got ours HERE for around $65 each or so. Totally worth it.


The toads have been back in action in the small pond amusing the kittens to no end. They only licked it once to figure out that they don't want anything to be licking on them anymore. But they think the toads are at least fun to watch.



We have put some of the cracked yarn bowls around the ponds and garden for toad houses! How's THAT for a fancy toad house? Willow has already decided that she wants whatever lives inside of these.


Oh - and Collen - if you are out there - please email me at theknitwitch@gmail.com about this sheep bowl:

Oh, I'm so jealous. I miss the warm weather and Georgia!! I can't wait to plant here, but it will still be several months.

We got up to 80 yesterday, but today it's supposed to drop and be cold again by the weekend. I wish it were summer. Almost.

Love the idea of a fancy frog house! I'm envious of your good weather - we're still mired in the throes of winter. Got another 6 inches on Monday. BLECH!

Beautiful cat, your Willow!
