Spring is when you feel like whistling even with a shoe full of slush. ~Doug Larson
It was the first day I really got out in the garden yesterday...I always feel hopeful about a new season and bleak about all the work to come all at the same time! I wandered over to the garden section of the big box store who had teased me with cool weather veggies when I drove in. I picked up two varieties of kale, Chinese cabbage, radicchio, and mustard to get started, oh and a flat of violas too. The whole garden sort of got away from me last year with too much school work and not enough garden time. There is a bunch of overgrowth that needs pulling. But I started with just a few of the boxes.
The plum is blooming its pretty white flowers which really stand out where there is no green.
Violas make instant cheer!!
The sky was glorious blue in contrast to the red buds appearing on the trees.
Lazy dogs pretended they weren't keeping an eye on me....
In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt. ~Margaret Atwood
