Come on Spring I know you can do it

Just when I started to think Spring was getting close we got a few inches of snow on 3/31. And, for what was hopefully the last snow storm of the year, it went out with a bang, well kind of. The highway department did the banging as they destroyed my mailbox with their plow. The mailbox made it all year, through one of the worst winters in history, but I guess when they came by in the wee hours of the morning on April fools day it was just too much for Mr. mailbox and he must of decided to commit suicide...I say suicide because the highway department already told me it wasn't their fault and they would not replace it so that is the only logical explanation. He must of jumped in front of the plow when it came by.... But I say this, if sacrificing my mailbox to the winter gods will bring spring I will gladly bear that burden....come on spring!



The beginning of the end for Mr. Mailbox


Morning Glory & Zinnia...now on the window sill


 
The girls playing in their designated play pen area. They are growing fast. Hard to tell from the picture, but they are already starting to get their feathers. I am hoping to start working on the coop soon, just need the weather to cooperate.



Everything is upstairs now. The peppers are tiny, not sure why. Also in this pic, tomato, lupin, cucumber, watermelon, eggplant


The summer squash & zucchini seem to be really happy. If anything, I think I was too early on these little guys
