It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade. ~Charles Dickens, Great Expectations
This quote sums up the month of March perfectly, at least around these parts. That's exactly how it felt around here on Saturday--freezing in the shade, but warm and cozy in the sun. Sunday was better, not as windy or chilly, but still sunny. On Sunday I ventured out to do some garden chores: trimming back the ivy near the fish pond, weeding, seed starting. But I didn't do any of it. I blame my lethargic attitude on my allergies. I know when spring has arrived because I spend most of my waking hours sneezing and itching.
I did check on the few plants I do have. The broccoli transplants are doing OK, but the containers where I started spinach and lettuce seeds a couple of weeks ago are still empty. I saw one little lettuce seedling coming out, but it was so small that it wasn't worth photographing. There is a seedling in the spinach container, but I don't know if it's spinach or a weed. I've been waiting for spring to get here, and now that's it's practically here, I just don't feel like doing anything. :(
