The horses enjoyed the green grass while Bev and I tried to do some yard. The water garden had wintered well and many things were growing already.
Bev did some raking and I worked around the water garden, removing the winter's leaves or should I say, trying to remove the winter's leaves.
Magic wandered by toward the green grass. The horses were loving the day and so were we. The temps were perfect.
Hubby and Andrew cultivated the garden. They hauled poop to the pasture and redistributed it for fertilizer.
The water garden is looking a little better but many leaves to go. I think a leaf blower would have made easy work of this. I had to handpick the leaves out of the rocks.
Note the black thing floating. It was covered with snail eggs so I had to leave it in. I want plenty of snails to feed my fish and help keep the pond clean. I also ran into many frog eggs and tadpoles. Life is going to be plentiful in my little water garden this year.
Remember how beautiful it was last year, it will be again and very soon. I guess we all have to shed the uglies after the winter we have had.
It has been raining since last night and still raining. I am glad it is not snow. Many of you have been hit with late winter storms and I am surely thankful the snow went around us this time.
We had great plans for today. More spreading of manure, I was headed to the barn to work but as you can see from this picture, not much equipment will be moving today.
