And again! Thank you to all who follow and support me!!

Four inches of snow predicted. I have seen what lies below the snow and quite frankly? I am OK with something that will cover the mess. We have had a slow melt. That is as it should be to prevent flooding and destruction. I stand on my deck and listen to the water seeping off the back of the mountain. It is audible, as the bird songs, a gentle trickling everywhere.

That said, the mud and brown earth with no green to cover its nakedness is not pretty. The scars inflicted on the wooden decks by the snow blower and the shovel are deep. Add to the list, must resurface the decks this year. The branches that litter the yard and hang precariously from the trees are fingers reaching out to remind me of the work ahead.

4 more will be the proverbial “Poor Man’s Fertilizer” and maybe we can race straight into green…

    You were hoping for a slow melt so that is good news. We are just entering autumn (fall) here and we live under a couple of enormous pin oaks, so we are about to get 4 inches of leaves for the next 2-3 weeks. Similar thing, different material!

    1. Very similar! 4 inches of leaves vs 4 inches of snow, I think I will take the snow as it melts and goes away all by itself!!

      1. Nolsie says:

        I agree, and my kids disappear when the rake comes out. Our pup will enjoy chasing/chewing the rake and messing up the piles of leaves though!

      2. So strange to think of you ending summer as I thirst for the first signs of spring. What and interesting place blogging is!

  2. Beth says:

    How nice to have a Laughing Buddha on your property! We’re hitting 73 degrees here today and, like you, I’m thinking about all the spring cleanup work.

    1. Ah Beth, Spring clean up will be monumental this year! I expect mud until early July the way things are going! Can’t wait to wade out and attack it!

  3. Annie says:

    Love your Buddha with his prayer beads. A snowfall is always gorgeous but I’m absolutely over sitting at the window with a cup of hot chocolate and a smile on my face. I think I’ve seen enough New Hampshire snow to last me a few months. Hope I’ll be out tackling some garden chores by this time next week. Then I’ll really smile…

    1. Thanks Annie! We are long overdue for some garden time!

  4. Touring NH says:

    Even though I missed most of the “winter that wouldn’t end”, I am so done with snow and cold. I would embrace mud season if it meant warm nights and warmer days. I just had to light another fire in the woodstove, I am also done with that!

    1. Fear not! 60 degrees predicted for next week. We will Survive!!

  5. We got just a dusting here, but even that is too much for April. I need to see some wildflowers.

    1. Signed up a fresh mushroom supplier today for the store and Joe’s. At this rate, mushrooms will be the only thing my gardens will grow…

  6. Marie Keates says:

    The amount of snow you get astounds me. We can’t cope with an inch or two. Four is a bad year here.

    1. I think it is finally over, Marie. I have crocus popping up through the dead leaves in my garden!!

Love to know what you are thinking! And thank you for commenting.
