Otis and Riley and I had a fabulous time outside today. The weather was warm and spring-like so it gave me a chance to do some gardening, one of my most favorite things! I went to the garden center early this morning and picked up some flowers.
I planted pansies and snapdragons in some pots and put them on the patio and then put mulch down along the stone pathway in the back yard. I pulled a lot of weeds and cleaned out the flower beds.
Out front of our house there was a small magnolia tree that had sprouted by itself under one of the holly bushes. I knew eventually I had to get it out of there and plant it somewhere else. So I dug it up and transplanted it in the front yard. It's almost 3 feet tall. I'm keeping my fingers crossed and hoping it will live.
What a great day it's been, being able to have lunch outside on the patio and soaking up the sun. I know we still have a few more weeks of cold weather but I feel like I got a jump start on spring!
