Seems like Winter refuses to leave and we are so very anxious to get out in our new yard and tidy up before the Big Wedding that is taking place in almost 2 months!!!! There are definitely signs of Spring popping up … Robins flitting around and preparing nests, Crocus and Daffodils opening their petals and Warm Sunshine on the front porch.
I have planted some Herb seeds; basil, parsley, rosemary, lemon basil, dill. Some Peppers; chocolate, jalapeno, mini red, orange & yellow and larger red along with tabasco. Tomato seeds went under the grow lights just yesterday – Sungold, Sugar cherry, Roma, Italian heirloom, Early girl and Stupice.
I am holding back on planting a bit since I always start way early and this year I have decided to start outdoors “after” the wedding. We will see how that part of the planning goes!
We spent some time at the home in Southern Illinois and the temperatures have been chilly but Spring is taking a hold down there quite nicely. The turtles have emerged and line up in their area sunning themselves with the hopes of warmer days ahead.
Although I was unable to move the Bees this trip, they have survived the winter and I was very excited to see Pollen being brought in. They no doubt have their agenda in full swing for the season ahead!
Spring is upon us and the kid’s Garden Wedding is inching its way closer….shower plans, decorating ideas, excitement, wardrobe decisions, gardening, flowers, weather concerns, rehearsal dinner. Thinking we may need a vacation after all this …
Wishing you All a Happy Spring!! And Winter … yes, it is quite Ok to take a nap until next year …. really!
