SPRING is HERE

Friday, February 21, 2014





Spring is here.
Today I sat outside SUNBATHING in a tank top and skort. The SUN BEAMS felt WARM against my skin.








As I sat outside in the warm sun I admired the CROCUS surrounding the flower beds.







The daffodils were waving in the slight breeze. Birds were singing their songs all around. Music filled the air along with the fragrance of the flowers. The daffodils have spread, increasing in their number this year. It's so beautiful.







The roses have around 1-4" of new growth on them. I can't wait for the first flowers. In the vegetable garden the kale, romaine lettuce, and peppermint are growing like crazy. It's time to start harvesting the home grown greens. The patch of wheat grass is getting tall, tall enough to make fresh juice.


Spring is here.

    We are only beginning to see spring. The start of leaf buds and my miniature daffodils are about to bloom soon. I love all your veggie options. emoticon

    Wow! Where do you live? It won't be spring where I live until at least May! We had a huge snowstorm on Thursday/Friday, in fact. Another missed day of school. We've missed so much that now we have to make up the days. I'm surprised you can have crocuses. I thought they could only be grown where the ground froze, like tulips. Have a great day!

Thank you for sharing. It will be at least 2 more months before it looks like that here. We still have 4 foot snow banks, but the robins have arrived and the chickadees are singing their Spring song. I will come back to this blog when I get cabin fever, it will brighten my day. emoticon

    I can smell spring although it is only 25 degrees Fahrenheit today. The sun is out and I have already thanked my grandson's basketball coaches for their time and thanked the mailman for delivering our mail. I'm hitting the street next to get my walking on and enjoy the sun before it vanishes again.

    The weatherman is forecasting warm weather today and then back to the deep freeze with a possibility of snow next week. I'm soooo ready from Spring emoticon , and Sunshine emoticon , and I'd even be happy with the Rain emoticon as long as it isn't freezing rain. ANYTHING but SNOW!!!!

To the people praying for snow: Please emoticon

    It almost seems like spring is going "psycho" early where I am - from over 1 foot of snow, I've gone from below freezing, to 50-degree temps, along with fog, an actual *tornado watch* (WTH?) and now a flood watch!

Yikes! What's next - a plague of locusts?

    Nice! I can only hope. Today we have blowing snow with wind gusts of between 35 - 40 mph. I have no idea what our wind chill factor is (I'm tired of hearing our weather casts). The beginning of the week is ushering in an even bigger cold front.

Enjoy your early Spring! emoticon

    Very pretty! It'll be awhile until we have signs of spring. My snowdrops and crocuses are buried under 2 ft of snow. The snow is starting to melt but we're expecting more snow this week.

    Our Lily of the Valley plants are blooming. I'm 4th generation of the family to have these in the yard (passed down by earlier generations). The delicate, tiny bell shapes are deceiving as the plant is extremely poisonous.
