It was a heat wave this weekend. We got up to 51 degrees on Sunday. Ella knew as soon as I poured my coffee that we were headed to the porch. It was wonderful. I looked through my gardening catalogs and tried to envision what could be under the snow. As you can see in front is a new addition to my garden. I have forever wanted an old tool box for a planter. I found the perfect one in an antique shop. Of course the poor shopkeeper was using it for a display of old spice containers. It took him a while to get it taken down. It is perfect for keeping Ella's pinecones from falling off of the front. I can't wait to fill it with flowers.
We hit the 50's, so I have high hopes that spring is around the corner. I hope others had a more successful bird count.
