    Only sign of spring here is the daylight coming back, still 0 degrees and frozen. I'm not complaining, sunshine is great.

    Picked my first daffodils today here in Southern MO....and the bees have been busy at the sap dripping from a broken tree limb on our ancient maple....lost its twin to straight line winds this winter and wow,sure opened up our front yard to the sun.....which means I can plant different stuff in my front beds now. Grass is greening up fast and the cows aren't hanging around to eat hay in the mornings anymore. MUTTI
