Spring

It's here, at least for this week.  Tuesday I went to my favourite garden center and brought a flat full of Spring home with me.

All those bright and cheery little faces make you feel good just looking at them.

Of course, me being me, I bought these particular ones because they were on sale.  Anywhere between 60 cents  and a dollar a pot.

Today I hope to make up a couple of planters with them.  I'll keep them at the front of the house where they can stay under cover and out of the rain that is sure to return.

Of course me being me, there is just as much of a chance of them never getting out of the flat,  and just sitting there until all the blooms are done.

Wouldn't be the first time, or the last. 

On a more positive note, I did soak some pea seeds for a few hours, and got them planted in the early evening, in that extra hour of end of the day light we now have.  Over 300 hundred seeds planted, I can taste the peas already:)

  3. The flowers are so pretty! I am just catching up with visiting your blog. How lucky you were to find a box of parts for the food processor...what a deal! Oh, and the watercolor you bought...I love it. I can see why it reminded you of where your Dad grew up. Where do the days go?
