They are very cold and the windchill makes me feel colder. We had another freeze this morning but the soil temperatures must be staying warm enough to keep things going.
I gave my neighbor lady a red peony last summer while working on enlarging my porch. I saw the new location in her yard and it does have shoots coming up. She had forgotten that I had done that and told me it had died. It sure is very much alive.
The robin (thrush family) is one of the many that were happy with the dirt work going on next to the road. I saw 5 of them at a time out there fighting over worms and bugs.
It will have to be seeded again. The group who worked on this did seem to know more about what they were doing than the last crew. The had a small caterpillar that spent most of the day packing the soil down. They did leave a slight edge next to the sidewalk so it won't be a complete drop off. Iowa soil does wash easily so the trench they made will be filled with soil in a couple of years from the edges of the ditch.
I go back to work tomorrow and normal life continues. I choose low stress jobs for the rest of the week thinking I would be healing an empty socket but I won't have to worry about that. I do feel a little beat up physically from being in the dental chair but that is going to be gone by tomorrow. Freezing cold this morning again but we are going to move into a warming spell.
Thanks for stopping by today.
