After second winter it actually looks like spring is here to stay (knock on wood, cross your fingers, wish upon a star...). With the balmy mid March weather that we had it was a bit of a reality shock to see white stuff back on the ground and have to put the winter chore clothes back on. All the while feeling slightly disgusted with myself on how wimpy I became after only 2-3 weeks of nice weather. Amazing how quickly that happens. It was only a few weeks ago that any time the temperature climbed over minus 20 and the wind stopped blowing that it felt like t-shirt weather. Wow my standards have changed!
I felt so sorry for the grass that was too optimistic about the weather for it's own good and had not been warned about the fickle nature of Alberta seasons. Second winter came as a bit of surprise to these little pasture plants.
But the moisture is good for the grass. That was my mantra as I ditched my summer chore clothes and put my winter coveralls back on. The moisture is good. The moisture is good.
