finishing house chores-spring is coming

As the snow/ice melts in the yard, I can finish my tree pruning without fear of falling. then everything will get a good raking and the compost bin gets filled up. here we go again. I just repottted a lemon verbena that I overwinter in the foyer, putting it into a self watering pot, and found a live green frog-I'm sure he is eager for spring & to go outside too.
