Rain and Flowers

While it's cold and rainy outside, we've been keeping the fire going inside.  That means it's a good spot to keep the yogurt bacteria warm while they're making yogurt.

Did I mention we made a hoopa for our plum tree? no, she's not getting married, just as protection against the February and March rains.  This tree seems to flower so early that the rough weather generally beats the petals off before they can turn to fruit buds. So, with 4 posts and a bit of green-house plastic, we gave the tree a little house.

Which really seems to be working. The blossoms on the tree look great.

Starting anti-fire prep

Well, we never really stop.  But, took a picture of today's raking below the yurt.  Every year I work to get a bit wider swath cleared....
