March 1st - A Walk in Our Yard

Today it is  about 38* outside - that is amazing!  It is so nice and warm.  We are supposed to get more snow so we have to get outside for a few minutes today.
Just wanted to share a few pix of our yard walk.
There are things growing under the dead of winter!  YIPPEE!
This is the back yard
 This is how it looked last May - amazing what difference 2 months makes!

A walk into the side yard...
This is the same space last May
 The pond is thawing!

 This is the same area last June.

Thanks for stopping by....
