Spring in the sink

Hi everyone! I sure hope your week has been good so far! :) Now I know it's still winter, and technically will be for more than a month. But I am SO ready for spring! So when I saw these flowers at Lowe's, of course I had to buy some to plant in the old Maytag washer by my front porch. Here they are in my kitchen sink, getting a little water until I plant them! (Which will happen as soon as we get more than two consecutive seconds of sunshine! ;)

The other day I noticed that the daffodils I planted last spring in the washer were coming up, and am so glad! Spring is truly on it's way! I will show you a picture of these flowers again when I plant them!

I hope you have a good night! :)

Hey Jenni,
I am over in Spokane and it has been gloomy since I got here (though I did hear the sun is coming out tomorrow) Funny thing is my husband say our weather has been good at home! Do you know I live on a hill above major Daffodil fields and the farmers are already picking them to sell in stores (this is rare for them to be ready this early) I've been wanting to plant some pansy's myself-Everything is blooming here south of Seattle! Love it!

Blessings to you too!

It was so gorgeous yesterday that I planted some grapes and started cleaning up my raised beds. Only today it's rainy and by the end of the week we should get some snow mix!

ugh I really can't stand it anymore! Your flowers were a lovely bright spot in my day!

They are beautiful! I hate to make you jealous, but we had near 70 degrees and sunshine yesterday. It was wonderful!

The crocus's (sp?) are blooming here too. I can't wait for Spring either, it can't happen soon enough for me.

See you later this week and thanks again for watching the boys for us last Thursday. DH & I so enjoyed our date night.

Love your shutter below!

Spring has sprung down here in Florida. It's sooo differnet from MI where I lived before! There is pollen on my car. If I were in Mi, I'd have inches upon inches of SNOW on my car.

We are getting a nice gentle rain right now which will wash away the pollen...I am thankful.

I can hardly wait to plant some flowers, but will have to use pots because the soil here is too sandy!

What pretty flowers. I remember your flowers from last winter, especially the gorgeous pictures right after it snowed. I need something living and green to see indoors, may need to drop by Lowe's too. Especially if it has a flower on it. :o)
Hoping your day is a nice one.
Sincerely ~ Trish
