On Valentine’s Day some girls get the kind of ice that is measured in karats, but the only ice up here in Heath is the kind that makes life difficult. The walk out to the henhouse might be better made with skates than boots.
With all the ice – albeit bright now today, my thoughts turn to the New England Spring Flower Show in Boston at the Bayside Exposition Center from March 8 – 16. Flowers! Greenery! That wonderful scent of growing things. Garden Ranter Amy Stewart will be there to talk about the Global Flower Industry, and Paul Tukey of People, Places and Plants Magazine and SafeLawns will be talking about lawns. What else! Tony Aven of Plant Delights Nursery will talk about Landscaping in Drifts of One. I think that is what I do. Of course, lots of other speakers, tours, and most of all plants. You can get full information at http://www.masshort.org/. Or call 617-933-4923. This is a great show and I can’t wait.

The snow certainly is pretty though. I’m still hoping we’ll get a good one before winter goes away. If it’s going to be so very cold, we should at least get some snow.
We’re getting ready for our first family of chickens. The one thing I’m not looking forward to is having to go out everyday in the cold to visit with them.

You will love your chickens, I am sure, and quality time spent with them will never be onerous. It is the walk to their house that is difficult. Hooray for chickens!
