Grabbed a quick shot of the shelf in the garden shed to use as sketch material later. Most of the things on the shelf have been there for many years, just things that I find lying on the ground or elsewhere and and that ask to be to be saved, a motley assortment.

Weather app says it's 62*F today, a stiff breeze made it feel more like. But, nonetheless good weather for the ending of February in Missouri. I tramped about the yard looking for signs of spring and found some. The spinach is astonishing. The cover blew off the hoop house yesterday and since we are expecting rain had planned to take it off anyway so thank you to the wind. Even though a lot of it is frostbitten on the edges of the leaves from that serious cold snap we had, looks like we should have a pretty good harvest and maybe be able to pick some soon.

The melting snow revealed a whole lot of dog excrement so walking around out there's a bit like a Minefield right now but once it warms up will get that all cleaned up. I was quite excited to see that the poppies in the Bottle Tree Garden are coming up as are the ones we transplanted at the end of the tall raised bed. None of the poppies bloomed well last year so I am hoping for a better show this year.

Ordered a new mechanical pencil for my sketching  And, found a cool tie dye shirt on sale so I'm adding that to my collection so that soon I'll be able to wear tie-dye everyday for a year.
