Just around the corner


Curled up on the sofa this morning with my cup of coffee trying to stay warm, my thoughts are of spring.  We had a taste of it this weekend and Monday was beautiful but now it is cold and windy again.  Seems we are just on the edge of moving from winter to spring.  


I walked outside to get a few pictures and noticed ice in the bird bath.
On the weekend when the temperatures were in the 70's, Galen and I planted potatoes, onions and garlic in the garden.  It felt wonderful to dig in the warm earth.




 So now we wait with anticipation for those warm days of spring, which I believe are just around the corner.

We are sooooo ready for Spring---I love your garden boxes and I would so love to have one or three. :) I can't wait to start playing in the 'weed' patch. :D

It is looking very spring-like in your garden, Donna. I'm so glad to know that you are once again enjoying your coffee and digging in the dirt.
Our weather forecast this weekend is supposed to be in the low to mid 70s. Yes, spring is definitely in the air.

Hi Donna, stopping by to visit...
You have planted! Way ahead of me, but the weather is so uncertain.. today it was in the low 70's. Tomorrow, the 60's. I just don't know what to do! Your garden is ready for Spring and looks great. Have a Lovely Friday!

Hi Donna, Can you believe this weather? One day it's freezing and the next we're in the high 60s. I haven't thought much about the garden. I did plant a few pansies near the mailbox. I really need to prepare the beds for tomatoes, etc. and do some pruning. Hope you have a great weekend and Happy St.Patrick's Day.

Dear Donna, I am with you on this one- I long for spring. But here we are suppose to get a major blizzard next week, sigh. No spring in sight, so I hope it will hurry in your part of the world at least. As far as I recall, spring always arrived in March in NC.;)
Have a great weekend,
xoxo
