The Ides of March

It seems we did not have much to beware today. Caeser missed the warning long ago. Really he never got the warning, wasn’t it Shakespeare who wrote “Beware the ides of March”? Either way, we found little to beware and we didn’t even sacrifice any sheep to Jupiter…

Though the dog did drag this charming piece of deer pelt from the woods.

We did not find much doom in this Ides, just a lovely warm day filled with lots of progress in the garden…

We moved the fence posts.

The fence used to be where the new…

…plot now is. The fence ran to the right of that tree in front of the picnic table. The garden feels SO much bigger now! Now we just need to attach the deer fencing material to the posts and the expansion is complete! Down at the other (west) side of the garden…

It was a nice tree but it just had to go.

It was shading such a large area of the garden and we already have several shaded areas (good for lettuce and some flowers), but we needed more “full sun” areas.

It was such a beautiful day!

I think I’m doing a great job of channeling a Boticelli chick in that shot, eh?! A seated, fully clothed, midwestern birth of Venus? HAhahah

    LOL! So THAT is what I should be calling it when I head out of doors and my hair is (stupidly) down and ends up dancing the dance of the seven veils in the breeze eh? Love that you are a redhead in certain light. Sort of like your “little black dress” for your hair ;)

    I’m so glad SOMEONE is enjoying spring weather! Your light clothing and trees budding out make me a bit envious. We are still firmly entrenched in winter (windchill today at mid-day, despite the bright sun, was in the negative numbers!) So we’re still snowshoeing! This has been one long crazy winter for us up here!

      If it’s any consolation, today was flurries with windchill in the teens (but warming up the rest of the week). Yes, I remember this part of winter in New England really started to feel brutal and endless. Hopes for a warm day for you soon!
