    geez out walking the pup, our 3 mile walk, in t shirt and shorts, it was 55f. Beautiful!

    I wear flip flops until the snow is at least 6 inches deep.

    I was born barefoot so why not go barefoot when you can .Poor mitch must think we are all nuts .But not sure I could ever survive his winters .I get bored and want to be outside .I would prefer a maid than a yardman .I hate house work .

    not much has grown in for the new pond, only bog bean has notable new growth
    won't need to cut away much this year, I stuck in so narcissus bulbs, but they haven't emerged.

    I just put a trough heater in the pond and I'm done winterizing. My pond runs in winter and the fish even feed since it stays 50-60F with the trough heater. I do get green water though since the bog is not growing. I actually change water in the winter. Funny eh?

    Oh and I put the aerators near the water top.
