Yes, Melissa, there is a thing called Spring!!!!

I simply have to have some "pretty" today! So I'm going through some pictures from my yard when flowers were blooming. Call it therapy. Call it whatever you want but you have to agree that the colors are good for the soul!!

I have been looking through gardening magazines and I have such big plans for this year. I can't wait to smell the dirt and cut off my fingernails in anticipation of playing in that dirt.















These are my lilac bushes beside the garage. They will be the first thing to bloom and I can be found with my face buried in their sweetness for loooong minutes at a time. I love to bring in dozens of bouquets and fill the house with their sweet smell. Ohhh I just can't wait!

Yes, I a definitely ready for spring. We are going to do a raised bed garden this year, 12 3x4 boxes (weeds have chocked regular beds) and are anxious to get started.

It is snowing here now :o(

Your pictures were like a shot in the arm for what ails me. I am so ready. What beautiful flowers. One forgets after so many weeks of winter what true color really looks like. Thank You!
