Wussies

 
It's the 1st of Feb' already can you believe.
The sun's shining, there's birdsong in the air and a bit of 'malarky' going on with Mr & Mrs Blackbird.
Thought I'd dust down the ol' gardening tools, take them for a stroll round the garden, remind them of their purpose in life and tickle their fancies.

 
But NO ... they were having none of it I tell yer ... didn't even stir from their winter hibernation. So I gave 'em a poke, shook their wooden handles, unsprung their coiled spring closures and squeezed their oily blades ...
NOTHING ... except a wimper ...

 
"Too cold" they cried pitifully ... "you go n' play ...we'll join you when the temperature rises to something well above freezing"
Wussies ...

I had to threaten my shovel to get him out of his winter hibernation. I told him that my kids' plastic trowels were happily out there digging, and I had a kitchen spoon with more moxie that I could replace him with. That finally seemed to do the trick..

Seems odd that it's freezing there when it's so warm here. But, I understand your tools' reluctance. I ran over one of mine while I was mowing today!

I'm with the tools on this one - anyway the ground is absolutely solid at the moment. You stay where you are my digging friends - I'd rather be a warm wuss than a cold one
