coming soon . . . SPRING!!!!

Yeah!!! Yesterday Ubby, Boog and I were outside playing and I decided to take a look at the flower beds--we have a lot of clean up work ahead but I was so excited to see...


Yes--flowers are coming back!! I am not sure why I am so excited. God sends them back every year. It really adds a lot of work to my load, but I love to be outside playing in the dirt. I have already started think about what to plant in my flower pots this year. I may need to be thinning out some of my perennials so if anyone is interested. (just a note: I did thin a lot out last year so I will not have tons!)

However, cousin Kelley gave me some new pods to plant and I just can't seem to stay away from the garden section at Lowe's or Wal-Mart. I really love that some of the Amish greenhouses now have more perennials! I thought I would try to get away from planting a lot of annuals but the annuals give you color almost all of the time, so you have to have them. I also noticed on my walk through the flower beds yesterday that the weeds are greening up too. :( Oh well you gotta take the good with the bad.

I had thought's of doing a post on the same thing!! I'm so excited! I too am going to be getting rid of an entire flower bed, so anyone is welcome to come get what's there.

I'm so glad you are enjoying Spring with new fervor. It's great. I like playing in the dirt, but I can't play here as much since we rent this home. Just yesterday I planted pansies and primulas in a couple of pots for outside the front door. I should take a picture and post it.

Thank you for praying for our friend. I have not heard anything new. I will let you know though.
