I feel like I'm always posting about plants but it's my new obsession so, get used to it.
I did so much yard work on Sunday that my body was actually sore yesterday. This doesn't mean much, however, because I am one of the laziest people I know.

I had to take a picture of poor Fabio suffering in the snow storm last Friday night. There is something so terribly wrong with this picture:
