Even though Spring officially begins in March, don’t you think it’s difficult to consider that it’s really Spring until flowers are blooming……and snow isn’t falling…….and Jack Frost stops showing his face?
Right? Me too!
So this past weekend, we finally decided it’s Spring here in our little corner of the world.
Deck furniture is out, and so are the greenhouse plants.
Bernie surprised me with his beautiful paint job on these rockers and an old table from my Grandma’s front porch.
He also surprised me by building plywood seats for these old iron chairs.
What color do you think we should paint these seats? Or should we stain them?
Mama gave me this railroad seat a while ago and Kathy, the best mother-in-law ever, bought me the beautiful swing. They were both treated last year, but we’re thinking they may both get painted this year.
The old wheel barrel is filled with Marigolds. And see that pot to the right of it in this pic? That’s one of the two azalea’s that I brought home from Daddy’s funeral in 2011. I planted them and they limped along. So we dug them up and put in pots and kept them in the greenhouse last winter, and they bloomed in there earlier this year! I’m hoping they’ll be happy with a more pampered life.
The flower garden around the deck is coming back nicely.
This next picture is for my friend, Susan – the Columbines are finally blooming here!
We planted our veggie garden three days ago. And we’re doing pretty much the entire thing with old field wire. And spacing for grass to grow between each row. Not only will that help us keep the mud down, it will help with the erosion issues from planting on a hill.
Every two panels, we put an opening. The rows are about 70 feet each and the opening allow easier access between rows so we can shortcut between them
You might be thinking “lazy” as an adjective….. I prefer “clever”…….
The honeybees got their very own herb garden – it’s starting from seed, so there’s not much going on in it yet.
And, how could you REALLY think it’s spring without a spring chick or two or three?
I know. Me neither!
All the signs are here.
I think it’s finally Spring!
