2013:
And it is time to start thinking yellow blooming bushes around the houses and on the mountians just a hint of blush as the red buds get ready to bust open.
Yeah, this March started out not so bad. Oh sure the first and second day of March there was a little spring like snow flurry, and sure the flurry built itself up to an inch - giving a coat of white to all the pastures. It melted right off and then the sky turned a dark steel blue and flurried another inch.

What a nice ending to winter - I though!

All was well -- just a late snow!

But wait-- -then we get a snow storm that is wicked as any in January. A cold north wind kicking up snow devil. The temperature tonight will be 24 degrees. I just had a mother hen hatch out two new babes yesterday. I have her tucked away in the metal building under a light - but still that is cold. I have several cows ready to have a calf, I sure hope they hold off now! Some spring. Sure would be bad to lose a calf way up in March!

P.S.
There was a very large mansion next to my kid's elementary school that I drove by for years. It had a very stately yard. They had lots of hedges neatly trimmed back. In the spring to my surpise they bloomed heavily yellow. So it is possible to maintain forsythia as hedges. I however; with just one -- seem to lose control and as the years slide by it just gets bigger and rounder. I guess I need to cut into some wood to control it.

But they are pretty as a hedge - esp in the spring.

And so much for global warming -- I am cold!
