Christmas 2012 is pretty much history.
Unlike two years ago, it didn't snow. It just rained, and then rained some more. That's okay. We needed the rain and will appreciate the outpouring from the skies this spring.
The seed catalogues are beginning to show up, so there is plenty to look at and look forward to.
Meanwhile, I'm trying to get at clearing some fence rows at the back of the pasture. It's probably been 20 years since a lot of that has been cleared, and back then it was the cattle that my father-in-law kept that did the clearing.
The cattle are gone, but there is plenty of vegetation -- trees, vines, privet, and the like -- to take their place. If I can convince myself that it will warm up just a tad, I'll be out there.
Meanwhile, here's what the good folks at Google have been gathering for those of us interesting in beekeeping.
