Garden adventures and advice…

Well, our on again, off again winter has finally arrived. We’re expecting a few inches of snow, high winds, and cold! Which it should be in winter – we’re just a tad spoiled here with these above zero (C) temperatures we’ve been receiving.

At least I was able to get outside and get all the branches that fell over the winter picked up – so I’m already ahead on my spring clean up.

There’s been quite a few snowy owl sightings in the area this year, and a fair amount of speculation as to why – many of these Arctic dwellers are  being spotted farther south than they usually are during this time. For those in Southern Ontario – keep an eye out, late in day, and you just might see one of these magnificent birds resting on a fencepost.

Yes, there's the odd failure, but there's nothing quite as satisfying as walking through the veggie patch collecting dinner.
