All the seasons in a week!

Monday, March 04, 2013

It wasn't that long ago that we were practically swimming for it here in South Georgia. Then last weekend we experienced our coldest weather of the year. And of course I had to spend the days hanging out on a windswept soccer pitch watching my son's team play in a tournament with my fellow soccer-moms. We enjoy it, but it was super cold. We were all bundled as best as we could be. Many of us don't have warm coats and such as we rarely have to be in cold conditions. One child was in flip flops and the mom in capris. I was doing pretty well as I have a big wool coat I rarely get to wear as well as a fuzzy blanket. The kids were wearing their flimsy uniforms and under armour shirts. On the bench they huddled under blankets too. It's a sight to see!

Today was brilliant and blue and very warm in the sun. I bought some knockout roses and mulch and tomorrow I intend to use my green thumb to prettify a corner of my house. I've heard a lot of good things about knockout roses so wish me luck.

I have been backsliding on my health and fitness regime with the tournament and all, but hopefully I'll be okay on weigh-in tomorrow.

    Sounds like a fun time watching soccer. We ended up having no school today because of the weather. So another day to make up at the end of the year. We got 7" of snow. I hope it is the last for the winter and spring will arrive soon. They are saying the 30s by the end of the week. That will feel so good.

    At least you can expect mostly warm and sunny days. In NY we are expecting yet another snow storm tomorrow!! Good luck to your son and take pics of the roses when they bloom. That's still a long way off for me!!!

    My roses are under 5 ft of snow! But when it starts to melt it goes pretty fast. I do have a lovely pink Tea Rose in a pot in the house that is getting Buds on for its glory later this month. My son ordered it for me last spring for my BD and when it came it was labeled Canadian so it should winter well, but I just never got it transplanted to the outdoors. Glad I didn't, I'm enjoying it this long winter. . . . .

I see it is 22 degrees here right now and the TV station has announced school will start 2 hrs late tomorrow. . . . . .but we're Sparking!

  Love to plant roses. I have several but not Knockout.

I wish the weather would stabilize here too. We had 65 today and tomorrow it is 45 again!

Enjoy your planting.
