It Is Spring

 Or at least that is what the calendar says.  The weather people are saying we'll get snow tonight.  Less than an inch and be gone by mid day tomorrow.  But it's the thought that counts. 
 Mr. Gnome and I built a cold frame.  Perhaps one bit of the garden will get warm.  I'd wanted to make this at the end of last summer but it didn't happen. And yes I could have had it up weeks ago but it's only just now done.  We got the window at Refab.  I stripped and resealed it.  Mr. Gnome made the box and we attached hinges and handles. 
 There aren't many sunny spots in the yard so the plan is to have it on the garden then remove it once it really does get warm.  Which in theory will happen.  Probably.  Then we can put it back for the fall.  That is the plan.  The window has been cleaned since this picture. 
 The window was one of those old ones with the chains using that for having it more open than I'll probably need but maybe.  And just old chains are cool.  Spring will happen one way or another!
