I've waited all Winter
to see you again.
Finally the jackets are shed,
and sleeves rolled.
Surely the soil is warming and
soon it will be safe to plant peas and tomatoes,
green beans, zucchini and flowers galore.
This evening, after mowing the backyard,
a few wave petunias were planted
I had an already opened bag of potting soil on the floor in the greenhouse.
When reaching inside to scoop out a huge handful to pour in a pot;
a billion or two ants went running up my arm.
That's an unpleasant experience I'll just say.
How fast the critters can find an opened bag of soil.
Last year; I left an opened bag on the ground outdoors and
a month or so later it was full of night crawlers.
That's just plain weird.
These boots are a little
on the strange side too.
Mainly because they're concrete and appear
to be about a size 8. lol
I haven't planted them yet...
-- only because they should get painted first.
A day or two ago I was walking out back and spotted
It wasn't around my chickens and I have no idea what
kind of bird lost it.
I've never seen one like it.
When doing a bit of weeding around the Mums
I spotted this little lady.
Two butterflies, and a few honeybees
buzzed happily in purple clover.
This afternoon; Kayla and the kidlets popped in.
The little ones are growing like
weeds aren't they?
The tulips are all ready to open and
praise the Lord.
This one already is.
I love looking in flowers....
As someone once told me,
"Look into the flowers Lea. They're your
glimpse of heaven."
Cleaning up around the shed tonight I noticed
this planted chair is looking worse for wear.
If I can somehow get it straightened out abit,
maybe it'll make it one more year.
Especially with another coat of paint.
Otherwise I'll be on the hunt for another.
A rocking chair that was my Mommas is getting planted this year as well.
Everyone hated it because it was a fingerpincher.
I've never planted a rocker before?
It too needs a couple coats of paint first.
While weeding around the olde hog water trough this evening,
I met this handsome Prince.
Last Fall, I planted tulips on the edge of the woods.
Violet and Spirit haven't found them yet or surely
they would have picked them already.
Violet has a sweet tooth for flowers.
I penned everybody up in the front after
finding this bunch so close to blooming.
Coming home this afternoon from a trip to Russellville,
I discovered goodies waiting on the chair by the kitchen door.
A turquoise dragonfly trivet and flowers to plant!
Who on earth?
There was no note. ???
Later, I found out it was my dear neighbor and friend... who left all this love
on the porch.
What a joyful surprise to come home to.
Well it's after midnight and time to turn in.
Thank you for sharing Spring with me!
Holykisses and sweet dreams.
