Happy Spring, Fellow Gardeners!

Snowing heavily at this moment. WHY, WHY, WHY???????

Off to Croatia this week and will welcome the drastic change in weather.

True, but those moments will not require the arsenal of parkas, boots, scarves, mittens, gloves, heavy sweaters, long johns and hats we own. :D

One coat will suffice.

indeed :)  i moved down here with all the winter stuff (snow pants!  lol!  and even ice skates) and promptly got rid of most of it.  now, all my clothes are made of tissue paper - i had to go north in december and my sister picked me up at the airport.  with a wool coat (and i needed it!  Brrrr!)

... REDRUM!!  I'm slow today, that took me a moment!  LOL :D  Good laugh though, thank you.

 

Yeah, our ground's still frozen except in the warmest corners of the yard. Our last frost free day is usualy a week or so after mothers day but still, the snow's getting to be a bit much. We had a total whitout for about half an hour today.  Ick. :blink:

I don't know how you guys do it, I would be completely criminally insane. Don't get me wrong, I refuse to live where it doesn't snow. I demand snow for both Christmas and my birthday. But by this time of year, I expect green grass, flowers, gardening, short sleeve weather and generally to have winter long behind me.

The only day I want to see any snow: Christmas Eve.

 

The maple tress are popping open, the lilacs are getting ready to burst open and it will smell wonderful for 2 weeks. The large bush is  outside my bedroom and I will open the window. (even if it is too cold).

 

The daffodils are open but the tulips are taking their time.

 

I mowed yesterday. yup, the mowing season is officially open.

I was reading that book in a  public laundromat years ago and was still scared out of my head. 

 

I know it's Jack b/c I have a brother named Jack, an ex named Jack and one in my life right now....(i know, crazy) and it's a common joke around here.

My late friend Kelly once broke up with a guy named Ron and almost immediately got involved with another guy named Ron. We kept telling her, "Two Rons don't make a right." (And we were correct - the second Ron didn't work out either.)

whew...for a second there, I thought you had forgotten your kid's name. 

 

Well, having all those Bills makes it easy when you have brain frogs. Just yell Bill! and odds are, someone will come. It may not be the Bill you had intended, of course.. 

 

Okay, it's 75 and sunny. Spring is here.  B) about freakin time.

There was a famous blizzard in May, 1977 that I recall very well. I am thinking I was about your age (I was in  college)

Kitty grass has sprouted in two planters on the patio -- one happy kitty kat :)

 

& poppy buds are popping out of the top of the soil of the heirloom tomato shopping bag planters -- can't wait until the flowers bloom
