This week vs last week


Here is what we had on the ground last week.
The typical scene looking out of my front door,
for the past 37 weeks.

Then this week spring arrived. Yesterday we broke the 70 degree mark.  Woo hoo!

I was outraged when I went out today, this afternoon, and saw this.
Do you see those white vestiges of snow?!  They should not be there!



On closer inspection, I was not outraged, but just slightly annoyed.

It is not snow....

It is fake cotton fluff.  Well, okay then.
Trash is psychologically acceptable.  Snow is not.


But then I saw this, and I was overjoyed.

These have survived so far, thanks to being sprayed with Rabbits B Gone.

Yellow croci and future mini-daffodils

This is my only tulip.  I hope the deer don't get it.
Update:  The magic stuff that keeps rabbits and deer away is actually called "Liquid Fence".  Last year Cassi recommended it.  I still have the bottle from last year, and it still stinks adequately to keep the pesky critters away.  Wear old shoes and pants and don't stand downwind when you use it.

That does give one hope!

That striped crocus is beautiful! Was that really the name of whatever you're claiming actually drove the rabbits away?

It's actually called "Liquid Fence, Deer and Rabbit Repellent" and it claims to be "eco-friendly". It was recommended by Cassi!

Wonderful! I actually need to get out and spray that stuff this weekend, before the rabbits get my bulbs!
