The sky is really spectacular tonight, with the moon and Jupiter being very close to each other. They won't be this close again until 2026! Beautiful, isn't it? I'm not sure what that star/planet is near the bottom of the photo...do you,? If so, please leave a comment.
Earlier today, Mountain Man built us a rustic garden bench. It's made out of 2 hemlock logs from trees in our woods and a piece of driftwood (a water weathered dock plank) that floated up to the dock at our river house...a little bit of here and a little bit of there. It will make the perfect spot to enjoy a cup of coffee early in the morning, or to stop and rest while working the garden in the early spring, or a place to just sit and enjoy nature!
winter rye (mentioned in yesterday's post, click on the link to read more) just beginning to sprout!
We also did some plowing in our yard today because we have had a problem with silt runoff coming down the driveway and into the front yard. The plowing is in preparation to spread road bond and/or pea rock to keep the problem from recurring.
This is the muck after all those rains we had recently. Not pleasant to walk or drive in.
It felt great to have a "job" to do today...winter projects have been a little slow with all the rain!
