I am glad I covered the peonies and bleeding hearts we had sleet last night and may have snow tomorrow. I used clear plastic bags and bobby pins to secure the bags to the grow through I looked everywhere for the closepins but had to make due with the bobby pins.
some of the bags were white and even black bags I was wondering about opque bags and if it would harm the plants to remain covered for a few days until the the storms passed. we will start having warmer weater late in the week perhamps as early as Wednesday

    Hope you're weather picks up...apparently we've had the driest March for fifty years and it seems to be continuing into April so we're now having to water the garden every day...Mother Nature eh! seems we can't win can we? emoticon emoticon

gray day

Saturday, March 26, 2011

it is mid 30', overcast and gray skies

we put out extra bird seed this morning and the flocks swarmed; seem to be growing everyday.

mostly grackles, cowbirds, and starlings. dotted about the black moving mass are the spots and flashes of the red on the red wing blackbirds

The smaller spotted sparrows, juncos, song sparrows, carolina wrens, darted in and about the larger mass snatching up the crumbs

But the bright flash of the cardinals was more prounced in the dullness of the day.

I do not see many robins as yesterday; but it was warmer yesterday
we are suppose to have a freeze tonight

back in the 30's tonight! but no snow in the forecast thank goodness. I made a tent of the tarp over the table so the plants would be protected. I hope the bleeding hearts dont frost over. the lilac buds look like little berries. the peonies are almost 12 inches tall already. so the frost would not be good. But some years we have frost as late as Easte, but soon we will be over the frost and onto the roses of summer

I went to a meeting on Monday and in the center of each of the tables there were a dozen or so of the mini chocolate bars; milk chocolate, my favorite.

I sat through the meeting which was two hours and did not eat one.

I did take 6 home and put them away and so far have only eaten one as a reward for doing a good job of watching my calories.

I was able to resist and not eat them all in one setting like I use to.

small steps to improvement along the way have kept me here on sparkpeople and all of you and your encouragement, thank yoo'll

I have been walking more and marching in place and that has been helping me get more mobile but still the bootcamp videos are tough at least for me

    emoticon That is the perfect way to build up your strength. 1000 steps a time per hour times 10 times a day and you will have done 5 miles or 10,000 steps. It works. emoticon
