We're finally starting to warm up here. The frost took a toll on all of our bushes and trees. Everything is still looking terrible and brown. I can tell that we have green underneath so in March I can trim everything back and hopefully have pretty green again.
I posted a while back about the problems we were having with bees under my husband's workshop. We had a massive hive underneath so the bees kept coming back no matter how many times we killed them. The hive had to be removed. The workshop had to be jacked up and the hive was removed.
We are now bee-free. Woot-Woot!
I was able to get some flowers planted in some pots that will probably hold me over until we are able to get our summer lawn in. I miss the green.
On a side note, I found a recipe for home made kettle corn here. It was very simple and delicious. The secret is to just keep the pot moving on the stove or the sugar will burn very quickly.
Sweet and salty deliciousness.
