Spring Has Sprung

Spring has sprung around here. I hope we don't get a late frost. The saucer magnolia is covered with blooms. And daffodils are popping up every where.

I actually had to open up the doors and windows this morning to let in some fresh air. I've done nary a thing in the studio and Monday I sign up for this year's farmer's market. Hopefullly the cool fresh air will clear my mind and motivate me. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.

  1. I have some of those "ruffley" daffodils in the yard. It seemed a lot of them turned brown quickly and I am not sure why. Maybe they don't last as long as the more traditional ones. I love this time of year, fresh air, no heat or a/c needed, which means a lower electric bill!

  2. Our daffodils are up here in Texas too... as well as the wildflowers... even a few Texas bluebonnets are showing their heads! And Linda, we also have been opening our windows and letting that wonderful fresh air in... (as well as a little rain).

    1. Hi Rian, thanks, oh Texas has such beautiful wild flowers and the rains make them all the more lush, bluebonnets are a sight to see.

  3. Good days to turn around and get started on something new. My windows have been open a crack daily, but I found suddenly the bedroom was too "close" without the window cracked at night also. I'm not sure when the next freeze will come, but I'm waiting for it, not putting plants outside yet.

    However I guess the little camellia tree next door is going by number of daylight hours and has started to flower... that daffodil is a lovely bright yellow

    1. Hi Anna, thanks, slowly but surely I am adding plants to our landscape as I can afford it, the daffodils are all volunteers.

  7. I was sure I commented on this post...positive I wrote a comment! I musn't have hit "Publish". I had been having trouble with a free-scrolling screen, so that might have caused the non-appearance.

    Autumn has sprung here...but the temperatures are still hot...it's still like summer.
