The past couple of days here in Minnesota have been a mixture of rain and sleet. Parts of this area really do not need the rain- in Fargo, North Dakota they are sandbagging like crazy to keep the rising river at bay. I love the rain, but I hate to see people lose their homes and lives to a rising river. I hope that the weather gives them a much needed break soon.
This is the time of year that I itch to get out in the garden. I have quite a bit of time before I can really do much out there. April and May is filled with pulling whatever weeds show up and inspecting the soil daily to see if I can see any new shoots of perennials re-awakening. Yesterday after work I went out to take a couple of pictures to share of my garden in late March. Pretty brown, but the rain will be waking up my sleeping flowers and next month I will have the joy of seeing green slowly poke through the brown. I usually don't take much of the old brown stems out till May---just in case we get another snowstorm they have a touch of protection still. My outdoor cat, Mr. Kitty Kitty, is glad the weather is turning warm too. He loves to lay on the garden path and sun in the summer.
