What an interesting week

Thursday I woke up to this:

Front yard

Herb garden and swiss chard

The onions

and Rhubarb
The Asian Pear trees almost in bloom

And the Apple blooms starting to develop

It snowed almost a half inch overnight, then it all cleared up and got windy. It also attempted to snow again on Thursday night, but the wind was blowing so hard that the storm blew on off faster than any accumulations could happen.   It so far appears that everything has survived the snow. Some of the pear blossoms have some black spots on them, but overall they appear to have survived and hopefully I will have a few pears this year. My peach tree is the only hold out that hadn't started leafing or blooming out yet. I picked a variety that specifically blooms later to avoid these late frosts and freezes. 

Saturday I went in the big city to visit with an elementary school friend who's daughter was showing at an AQHA horse show. I got some photos but most were fuzzy and grainy and yucky from the flash and lights from the indoor arena. 

After the show, we all went out to dinner and shared some old memories like the time we saddled up and rode to our elementary school to pick up our report cards.  Or when we rode the horses over to the corner convenience store to get a coke.  We talked about old horses and current horses and all kinds of things.  We probably bored her daughter and my hunny Keith to death, but it was a really nice visit.  

Today we finish out the weekend by moving all the horses to the arena and tearing out a section of the pasture fence to replace it. So now I'm off to start moving horses.
