And my Gardener friend next door has posted on her Facebook: that even tho it's been an (rotten, stinking, etc.) exceptionally cold winter, it hasn't been that (flippin') bad. Words of someone who is looking forward to (digging a tunnel under the 2 ft of snow in the yard) getting outside, playing in the dirt and replanting that yard!!
