 Finally, there has been progress.  The weather warmed.  My rose bed and the front flower beds melted off.  I was able to go in and clean them out.  Luckily, there were no signs of any garden pests.

It feels like we are coming down the homestretch.  Once the earth is showing and soaking in the sun the snow melts pretty quickly.

The other progression is my nephew's quilt.  Today I finished quilting.  I'm not quite finished in these photos, but it is done.  All that is left is the binding.  I really enjoyed this one.

It feels good to be moving forward.  Hopefully, the weather will stay consistently warm.  I am ready for spring that is for sure. 

When this quilt is done my next task is spring cleaning.  It is also getting close to seed starting time.  Actually, it has been hard to hold back because the greenhouse has been super warm.

Are you finishing up your winter work?  What is next on your agenda?

got nothing...

 It snowed and I quilted.  That's all I have to contribute.  I hope you had a more eventful weekend.

What once was lost...

 The weather was fabulous this weekend.  Ella and I both enjoyed a few walks.  We also were estatic that we were able to spend the morning on the porch.  The first time this year.  

The birds were abound.  I saw my first robin of the spring.  From the porch, I saw a brown creeper, several blue jays, crows, chickadees, nuthatches, juncos, and pine siskins.  I could hear turkeys gobbling, a hawk screeching, and woodpeckers knocking on the trees.  I didn't get one picture.  I didn't want to go in the cabin to get the camera.
This was the weekend for finding lost things.  My husband put on a vest he hadn't worn in awhile and found my little Swiss army knife and our tree marking ribbon.  I had to crawl under the porch for a lid that had blown under.  I found many lost items: a purple button, purple lighter, a penny, and of all things a turtle that seems to have escaped a flower pot.  It was somewhat interesting.
It was a perfect day to clean out the greenhouse.  If you are wondering about the wine bottles they keep me from poking my eye out on the rebar.

Did you have good weather?  What was the last lost thing you found?  I hope you have a wonderful week.
