Ready for spring?
I am SO ready! We had wonderfully nice weather around these parts for the past week, until today. Now it's raining, and we've been so spoiled with the sun, it seems so dark and dreary! It has really felt like spring, but you can't guarantee there won't be more snow and ice~ last year, it snowed quite a few inches mid-April. I couldn't remember it ever doing that before! But you can never know for certain...But I am ready to put away the mittens and hats, and pull out my garden gloves! So yesterday, that is what I did. We had a little family work-party, and spent a couple of hours raking (there is a reason this is considered exercise!) and weeding...our son even cleaned and raked his little front yard "club" area! (It looks much better now!)
I even planted some spring flowers I bought at Lowe's...Ah, pansies, baby daffodils and ranunculus!
Have you ever taken a picture and later, when you looked at it, realized it didn't look very good? Well, these flowers don't look very pretty in this picture, but they actually do in real life...although they need some water, I think! They look a wee bit droopy! I'll show you a picture again when they grow a little more. :)
I am also decorating for spring inside...
And doing a lot of spring cleaning and organizing! It feels so nice to have things becoming more organized around here!
I hope you all have had a fabulous weekend, and that you have a good Monday, too! :) Until next time~
