Spring? April 10, 2015 First day of spring was March 2oth. As I type, I am still thawing out my hands from a trip to the outdoor garden center. I failed to see the 39 degree, windy forecast on my little weather thing in the kitchen before I left the house. Froze to death in my thin raincoat. Serves me right for thinking I could go buy stuff to plant in the yard in April! I thought I saw signs of spring popping up, but now I’m not so sure? We just replaced the batteries in our gas fireplace remote. I pulled my black down coat back OUT of the closet. I have socks on. I am making chili for dinner. Freshly washed bathing suits from a recent senior mom/daughter trip are mocking me from across the room. Our Patagonia collection is alive and well and still in play. My Weather Channel app has the nerve to say it will be SIXTY degrees later this week! Initially, I wanted to identify each one of these plants in the photos for easy purchasing/planting. But I couldn’t keep my cold, ungloved hands out of my pockets long enough to write anything down. So, in the meantime…. I will refer to all this color for the next few days until it warms up and I can’t see my breath outside. Can I pretend its spring if I’m still sleeping on flannel sheets? the wry home Spring? was last modified: April 25th, 2017 by Elizabeth Dowling GardeningHomeNurseryPlantsSpringYard 1 comment 0 Facebook Twitter Google + Pinterest previous post My UP-dated Master Bath next post Aloha from Hawaii You may also like Kitchen Refresh – Part II April 4, 2018 Beach Shades May 3, 2015 Wind Farm Chic September 1, 2016 Palm Beach Design February 19, 2019 Before & After Bedroom Project March 2, 2017 Spring in New York City April 28, 2016 1 comment Missie Fahey April 14, 2015 at 10:58 am Its feeling like spring somewhere, Liz! Thanks for sharing inviting color bursts. It will be here soon I hope. In the meantime cozy up in front of the gas fireplace with a warm toddy!
