I am going to go out a limb and say that I think that spring has definitely sprung. I saw one motorcycle, there were probably lots out, but I was busy with stuff, the one I did see rolled down past the house just as we were finishing eating, so I'm thinking if there was one, there were many, just not me.
I was gifted with these deep purple beauties last Sunday. There was nothing but a few leaves on Monday, and by today they were all beginning to pop up...
I don't think that they are going to grow much taller than they are now. I hope that they do cause they are going to get choked by the vase.
The front flower bed are finally have little green tops poking through and I will say that I am absolutely grateful for it. I have had enough of the cold and snow. I am tired of being cold. I am anxious to see the crocuses. I have been looking at pictures of the last couple of springs and it seems that all things are about where they should be, in another week or two we should start seeing the first blooms.
I have to get the hummingbird food ready so that we can have them ready
for the first scouts. I hope we attract a few dozen birds.
If I was asked how this "staycation" is going, I would most definitely
say pretty awesome. Ok, so the first week we were hit with snow a few
times and way too cold temperatures, but on the upside we did not have
to leave the house. There has been major progression in the hall rehab
with little mess.
Cupboards have been cleaned and reorganized. All things equal, it's all good.
I keep going back to the most magnificent stir fry that we made, and that I need to take the other wok out of "mothballs". It leaves me feeling a bit sketchy and queasy, cause you know, I was
saving that for good, not wanting something to happen to it, just in
case. I have been afraid that the heat from the burners is going to mar the
outside and then I will be sad. I know that isn't rational or even
remotely sane, but that is what I do, it doesn't matter what it is, I
save for good. Someone once told me that I should not save for good because
then I am missing out, what am I saving it for, I should just use it and
enjoy it. Maybe they were right, I don't know, I just don't know. Maybe I should sell the other wok and buy a new wok that I will use in it's place.
I am going upstairs to pack our bags, I said, please go outside and tie the motorcycles down, we are going to Daytona......
I really don't want another day like today. It did nothing but snow, snow, snow then snow some more. It started early this morning and continued til around 7:00 this evening.
Even the Luna thought it was becoming tiresome.
Everyone was out in the late afternoon/early evening to start to dig ourselves out. I went outside with my camera and took these lovely pictures. After a late supper, I went outside it was so quiet and really beautiful.
I just found out....the temperature is going to drop....oh Daytona
I am waiting most patiently, I might add, for Spring. This winter is ridiculous, I am tired of being cold. We have been blowing through fuel oil like it is water. I will even go as far as saying that I have turned the oven on and baked something just to have the extra heat. We have to really look into getting a gas insert for the fireplace for next winter. I would love to assume the position in front of our fireplace.
I feel bad that I am not enjoying the second blooming of the amaryllis as much as I should because all I want is the spring and tulips. I want to put up my faux fruit box on the center of the dining room table. I have the greatest idea for the faux tomato can also. I need spring....now
When I came home the other day I was met with these beauties, all the more reason for the cold to be done.
I want to celebrate these beautifully brilliant beauties without feeling like I am letting down the other beauties on the table.
