I think everyone has had about as much cold and snowy weather as they want... I know I have. Even though it may not be nice to get outside in weather like this, it is possible to dream and look forward to nicer weather in the next few months. One of the best ways I know is to look at the garden catalogs and decide what tree or shrub you want to add to your landscape this year. It always amazes me that they can get such beautiful specimens that never look quite that good when I plant them.

This Cold Weather is “For the Birds!”
This morning, before I came to work, I was stumbling around in the dark in 8F temperatures and sub-zero wind chills with a flashlight to make sure all of my bird feeders and waterers were well stocked for my feathered friends. I feed the birds year round, just to draw them close to the house because my wife and I like to watch them. We always have a good variety of birds around. It’s mornings like this one that I question my sanity... although my wife questions it all the time.
