Switching gears back to the weekend at our mountain cabin, the weather was very interesting. As we approached elevation of 3,000 feet in Laurel Springs, NC, Friday night, the light rain changed over to huge snowflakes pouring down on our windshield. Nothing stuck to the road, and the next day we had a gorgeous blue sky. Wouldn't you like to be soaring in a jet over the beautiful mountains?
The frozen pond finally started thawing out in the balmy afternoon sun, and the world's ugliest ducks (they are decoys) finally got freed after being frozen to the pond for a few months.I planted some daffodil bulbs along our driveway and in one garden bed, and here they are starting to poke up through the soil!
And there is some grass growing over the earthen dam of the pond. We planted grass seed all around the new pond, and hope it will do well this spring. My nephew has chosen to get married up there on the banks of the pond on May 17! Right now it looks far from being ready for a wedding.
(That's my dog, Maggy, checking out the dam.)
