A taste of spring

Ahhhhh..........early morning coffee on the patio. Even though it's the middle of February, it was one of those sunny mornings that felt like a spring day.

Absolute joy.

Spring fever has just set in and taken over. I want to do a million things in the garden.

Otis and Riley enjoyed the warm sun as temperatures reached the mid 60's. It was the kind of day you want to spend outside ~ all day. And we did.

One of the things I like to do this time of year is dig up a hyacinth that has started to push up through the winter ground ~ I put it in a pretty flower pot and bring it inside. I love the smell of hyacinths.

Spring cannot come soon enough for me.
I'm thankful for a beautiful day like this to enjoy in the middle of winter.

Hi Donna
Wasn't it a beautoful weekend? we got lots of work done in the yard and enjoyed eating our lunch outside. That is a great idea digging up a hyacinth!
Hugs, Rhondi

Your day sounds about like mine. So delightful to be out in that warm, fresh air. I'm so glad you shared your idea for the hyacinth bulb. I never would have thought to do that, but what a great idea. I'll have to remember to try it.
