March

March felt so long! Looking back at photos from the beginning of the month I can’t believe it was just the beginning of March that stuff happened.

these squirrels are evil. They’ve eaten all the heads off of our bulbs and even dug up garlic (which they supposedly hate). I’m not sure how we’re going to have a garden.
