The temperature outside at 8:00 this morning, depending on which thermometer I look at reveals "COLD". I suppose they could all be correct...since they are located on different sides of the house. The front porch get first sun. One says 25 degrees and this one on the back porch is 22degrees The National weather report says it is to be 53 degrees today and sunny. I can see heavy frost on everything and as the sun comes up things are starting to glisten. It is definately warmer in the chicken studio, I checked there it was 32 degrees and they seem to be not bothered. I don't think however that Spring will be coming quickly, so the planting of starter seeds will be a project started inside. Yesterday I planted some paperwhites hoping they will soak up the sun rays in my kitchen window and give me a show of their flowers within a few weeks, I am sure that will make me feel like Spring is getting close. Forcing flowers inside is one thing, waiting for mother nature to hurry up is another afterall it is only January.
