The weather has been fabulous the last couple of days.

The ground is drying out much earlier than last year, and it is really difficult waiting.

I feel like plunging into the spring garden work, but I know there will be a change in weather sooner or later. Starting too early never seems to be any good in the end. I must stick to my ingrained schedule.

Besides there’s no sense in starting anything big now when we are going to be away in Japan for a few weeks. We’ll have plenty of time to do the spring work when we get back.
