SPRING HAS ARRIVED! I know it...I just know it! Yesterday morning we had 1 inch of snow. By mid afternoon it was all gone except for the corner of my deck which is very shady...It was like spring was bustling in to say, "Time's up for your stay, winter!!! Now be gone for awhile!" This afternoon our temps are approaching 60! I do believe that today is SPRING's official hello no matter what the calendar says! I also know that losing one hour of sleep because of daylight savings time's "springing forward" was not fun this morning.. Looking on the bright side, I am off to take a walk later this evening because we have more "sun" time. So, isn't that just life? One door closes, and a window opens for new opportunities to wing their way to us. I purchased 3 pots of tulips last week. I placed them on my screened porch this afternoon. I hope to see the buds soon. I also have a new "tea rose" in blushing pink. I couldn't resist the pale blush on its blooms. Tomorrow will be a good day for starting some of the heirloom seeds in peat pots. What will you be planting in your gardens?
