We finally got it! High’s in the 60’s, a sky-blue sky, warm sun, no rain . . . simply FABULOUS! During a typical winter in south Georgia, you are supposed to be able to sit outside in one layer of clothes at least 3 or 4 days a week; you are supposed to be able to “ride the ri’vah” at least once a week, you are supposed to already be swatting gnats – well we can do without that for another month or so – but you get my drift here.
Even with coffee cup still in hand, on Friday morning I announced I was spending the day in the yard, and Ted announced he was going to Albany to run errands. That always works best when pruning starts. When I get a pair of pruning shears in my hands, you never know where I will stop, and Ted not being on the premises gives me all the freedom I need to be creative. He left one day last year while I was pruning and came back to find his prize 12-foot crepe myrtle pruned down to four 8″ twigs. He decided to prune the other one himself.
Saturday dawned just as beautiful as Friday, and Ted had a kayak ride on his agenda. He pulled his kayak out of the boathouse, cleaned it up, and headed out on the river.
We ended the afternoon with grilled burgers, compliments of Ted – working out of his “man cave”.
What a great weekend! Rain coming in tomorrow, but I won’t even complain. See what a little sunshine can do to brighten your whole attitude!
