Ready to Burst...

I had a very busy work week, so I have had very little time to post on my blog, or comment on some of the fabulous things that happened in everyone else's gardens this week. And, when the weekend hit, and I was ready to spend some quality time in my yard, we were hit with the same coldsnap that has hit much of Western Canada, with nighttime lows of -10 degrees Celcius, and daytime highs of -2 degrees (which is very abnormal for this time of year). Yesterday it was so cold that I had to pull out my heavy winter coat just to go shopping. Today, it is a beautiful sunny day - but still quite cold and windy. I am hoping we can get a bit of yard work done - finish edging the gardens we changed, and finish putting the new composter together. I am about ready to burst waiting for spring to actually arrive. Just like these leaves...they are ready to burst as soon as it warms up.

Isn't this cold snap horrible? I was hoping to get all kinds of work done yesterday but it was just far too cold and windy to work out there. It's sunny today and looks a *little* warmer so hopefully this will be over very soon!

The weather has been freakish. I did a post on the second bout of hail we've gotten in a week. Mother Nature is toying with us. Hope you were able to get out Sunday. I too put together another compost bin. Now I need to fill it up!
