It's hard to believe there's all that snow elsewhere in the US when it's so sunny and beautiful here today. The muscari have joined the crocus and the bees are working happily away visiting my garden in the warm sunshine.
When we lived in Cambridge I had some physical therapy with the best PT ever. He was really big on econo-tools I could use at home to exercise or self-massage. One of his favorites was a string of rubber bands looped together. This one is two used tennis balls stuck together with duct tape. They leave a perfect little depression for your spine. You put this doojobby on the wall and then lean against it and squat up and down while it loosens up your back muscles. Presto-chango you feel MUCH better.
Last but not least the cat grass has sprouted and in the rabbit vs. tortoise race, this is most definitely the rabbit. These guys are 1 1/2-inches tall in 3 days! The packages says you can give this to your cats ten days after planting. I was a bit skeptical but now? I totally believe it. I looked at them at 7 and then again at 2 and they were at least half an inch bigger. Wow!
