Sunny Day

I have been anxiously waiting for the weekend to get here because one, I am away from my day job and two, I get to work outside in Maggie's Garden.The forecast all week promised warm sunny days this weekend. They delivered on their promise!
Now, portions of our property is still under water and you will sink to your knees if you walk in these areas, yet I do not mind mucking around somewhat. I have big plans for these areas. Fruit trees in this area and Glads in that area......
Sold one of my smaller chicken coops this week to make room for another Fuji Apple tree since it is time to plant bare root things like fruit trees, roses, shrubs, etc. Now, to put down the gopher wire before I make the bed for the trees.
The greenhouse is filling up fast with tender plants that I dug up, potted, and put in the greenhouse to protect from the frost. I have several Begonia plants in the front yard that die down in the winter and come back every spring. I decided to pot them up this winter to get a head start on the growing season and see if I can get them to a bigger size.
Here is a picture of my new greenhouse being built by my wonderful husband:

Notice Dusty in the background watching the greenhouse take up more of her precious pasture.

Well, I am wasting daylight, back to the dream!
