Is Spring Here?

Spring Definition: a. The season of the year, occurring between winter and summer, during which the weather becomes warmer and plants revive, extending in the Northern Hemisphere from the vernal equinox to the summer solstice and popularly considered to comprise March, April, and May. b. A time of growth and renewal I like answer b -A time of growth and renewal. We get to open our windows and doors allowing the aroma of fresh mown grass or fragant flowers in bloom. My house always gets a revamp. I change out the throw pillows on the sofa, change the chair pads around the dining room table, put away the Winter dishes bring out my cheery fiesta ware and make sure all the towels in the house are Spring colors. My husband just watches as I start to gather up the winter foliage knowing that soon I will be down in the lower garage getting the Spring boxes out to decorate. We have a bit of a hill I need to walk up from the garage sometimes I use the dolly or even better yet Steve gets into his truck to drive it down for me to load up. Oh I love when he does that saves me about 10 trips. I truly enjoy changing out the seasons even all the walking I have to do. My birthday falls in February so I am so happy that I receive gift cards to the local Home Depot and Lowes store this way I am able to revamp my flower beds also. The bulbs have started peeking their heads up from their long naps now I can see glads, tulips, paperwhites, and even some iris plants starting to bud. The orchids were saved once again from the frost thanks to Steve who remembers to move all 10 plants under the eaves. The pink blooms are sweet although I can't wait for the green and maroon colored orchids to bloom. Everything got fertilized this past weekend very glad I did since we had a wonderful downpour yesterday and more on the way. I know the saying "April Showers" bring "May Flowers" seriously we could use more sunshine these past few months my bones are not liking the cold weather. I have to put on 3 layers of clothes just to venture outside. I have been crafting these past few weeks since the weather really doesn't permit me to do much outside. I was able to finish over 18 bunnies along with some very large carrots. The bunnies and carrots have sold out hurray!! If more orders come in I will make more. I started working on some new projects already though for summer and spring. I have been putting some garden ideas together also with the help of Steve. We have old fence boards that have turned that wonderful gray color just waiting for us to work with. I am excited to share pictures on my facebook page once completed that is if I can figure out how to do this again Blogspot has changed their web site ugh. IS SPRING HERE? Yes it is


  1. Your bunnies are so cute! I looked at your about link to see you live in Southern CA. I am jealous! There is still snow on the ground in MA! Spring usually comes on quick for us so hopefully in a few weeks the crocuses start peeking through the ground! I usually mulch in April and that always feels the like the beginning of spring for me.

  2. Thank you Miss Val
    I wonder if I could exist in a state that gives me 4 seasons. The older I get the more I don't embrace the cold weather but then it also is true for our hot summers I am looking for cooler weather. I am just learning with age to adapt being happy that I don't have to shovel snow :-).
    You too get the beauty of the earth blooming just it takes a bit longer for it to happen.
    Have a wonderful Easter holiday.
    Thank you for reading my blog.

  23. Airport taxi in Edina as well as airport taxi in Eagan, they are just one of kind. No other taxi services operating in Minnesota provides the quality that these twin city taxi eagan services provide. It is just the best airport taxi service for both corporate and normal passengers. Always on time and available 24x7 and this makes this airport taxi service more special and trustworthy.
