But I look forward to Spring, too

So this is our first (soon-to-be) Meyer Lemon blossom. I potted two 10" bare-roots last spring. They lived outside all summer and have been inside since fall. They're doing great, and I can't wait to put them outside again this spring and let the bees get to work :)

Winter Wonderland....

There are a few upsides to getting snow.....

Look closely, that's the pool behind the fence and the BBQ....

Back to riding!

Here's a few pictures of Michelle and I enjoying the new indoor and wonderful footing......Kate has only been under saddle a year or so, and remember lyric is 23 this year! Pics of Dundee to come :)

(OK, Alyssa, so your saddle is not only uncomfortable as h**l, but its doesn't make for a very attractive ride, either! Oh well, can't be picky when I'm lucky enough to have ANY saddle wide enough to span my little apple-dumpling's withers!)
