All around blogland I have been seeing beautiful and inspiring pictures of spring. I love seeing all sorts of flowers and green re-making its appearance.
So I thought I would share what good ole Zone 5 looks like this time of year. Not as springy as the warm places are sporting but I am taking what we can get.
Especially considering that last weekend we started with this….mother nature did not get the memo that it was the middle of March.
I just may have gone to Home Depot yesterday to buy some potting soil and pansies for the front porch. And while I was there, the vegetable vendor just might have been there delivering all his goodies. And I might have browsed them to see if lettuce and spinach were there. You know because they can withstand a freeze and all. And it does not hurt to check. And to stare at the mini tomatoes and herbs. Sigh. But I
sad happy to report that I restrained myself by repeating over and over “It is too early….they will freeze and die…and then you will be very very angry.” So for the next couple of weeks I will just have to take solace in the green beginning to poke up and knowing that they are waiting for me to take home and be part of our garden this year.
Now if I can just figure out just how to get rid of the bunnies and weeds and figure out how to have the beds add compost to themselves I would be set. Hmmmm….
