Not Wordless Wednesday

It was warm again yesterday. It hit 50F, but it was cloudy, so although a lot of snow melted, there's still a lot left. Mom says it will melt in April. She says she can't ever remember snow on the ground in May, and certainly not in June. Mr Karate says he remembers a snow day on his birthday, which is in late April, and that is very unusual.

It did not get below freezing (32F) last night, so some snow melted overnight. You can almost see the road in front of our house now.

Of course, if Mom had entered the When When Contest every year, she would have lost, so that doesn't mean anything. And we are not in the same place as we were last year, so the dates might be different. We'll see.

Mom put some seeds in this dirt. She's getting ready for her garden. The stuff in this dirt is mostly for herbs she will keep in pots near the window, but there is some dinosaur kale that will go in the real dirt outside. You know, when the snow melts, and the ground thaws.

As for me, I'll be watching.

So you are now keeping watch from the girl-cave area of your kitty condo. Do youAre you peeking around the corner to check on the latest When When conditions? Hopefully it will all be gone for the season by one of our 2 dates.

Dinosaur kale! Millie, we sure hope there aren't any ginormous dinosaurs in your part of NH. If they hear mom planted Dinosaur kale in the garden, they may decide to visit your garden for a delicious meal of their favorite kale. Dinosaurs are a pesky problem for gardeners. Be on alert for then when the dinosaur kale is at it's peak this summer. If you see any dinosaurs show up, protect your nip plants at all costs.
