I remember sunshine that is that bright glaring
light we had a few weeks ago wasn’t it.
That is that bright light that now wants to blind
us as it hits the snow and reflects into our eyes.
That glare and sparkle that makes the birds sing
as they set in the trees around the bird feeders.
We are having some temperatures in the forties and
some of the snow is melting down. The shoveled path
between the house and the garage is actually showing
some green grass now. The giant icicles that we have
been having to knock down are now melting and
sliding off the roof. Everyone watch your heads!
All of the snow covered tree boughs are now bare
once again and there are blue skies beyond the trees.
The sun is so welcome and I am soaking it up while it
lasts because winter is not yet done showing its muscle
but spring is getting nearer with each day that passes.
Soon the Hyacinths will be blooming in the
The Tulips will open there bright petals to add
color to a browned and drab yard.
Soon the Ferns and Tiarella will unfurl their leaves
and reach for the sunlight.
The Daffodils will bloom with their sunshine
yellow blooms against backgrounds of green.
Yes, we here in Ohio are dreaming of spring
and the spring flowers it brings.
Until then we will enjoy the blooms of our fellow
gardeners who are fortunate enough to already
have spring flowers starting to bloom.
I got mail too Darla! LOL!
This is what I received yesterday in the mail from Darla
at More Family and Flowers from the Giveaway contest
she held. So many wonderful goodies that any gardener
would love. She really knew what to send to decorate those
containers of mine. Pretty plant stakes of watering cans
and frogs. An the sweetest little hummingbird feeder stake
to add to a container. I just love them and they never have
cute things like that around here. A beautiful card and fridge
magnet full of ‘Hope’. For growing a packet of white cosmos
that I am going to be anxious to get growing. Also some
Liatris to plant this spring.
Darla how did you know I had never grown
them and have been wanting to try them. I have seen them in
other gardeners beds and they looked so pretty.
Thank you so much! I just love everything.
Now I am even more anxious and cannot wait to get
them out into the containers this spring.
Thank you so much!
I see Blotanical is up and running again so I will have to go investigate.
Hope Everyone is Having a Wonderful Weekend
Happy Gardening Everyone !
