The yard of course is a total train-wreck after all the freezing temperatures and some plants like my gardenias and jasmines are a total write-off this year, so I'm spending my weekend split between carving some silver clay pieces and attacking my frost-corpses with my trusty rose snippers.

Work is good - just had a client contract extended till the end of May, which is fabulous, and I am working on a few training assignments in between So far this year looks very promising. Hopefully we're done with cold snaps as well, and can look forward to spring now!
