Spring can’t get here fast enough

Spring can’t get here fast enough.  Well, the warmth of spring can’t get here fast enough for me.  I am really over the cold.  I am so ready for warmer days and greener views!

The other day we popped in to our local produce market to pick up our staples and we got a couple of treats too.

I picked out the cheery primrose to brighten up the dining room, then the garden once it is warm enough to plant it outside.  I completely spaced on my new blue and white pots, so I should have bought two of them.  Face palm.  Maybe if we get back that way, I will grab another.  I would like to make those blue and white pots a permanent installation with a rotating display of plants or flowers.

I also picked up some tulips.   My mother-in-law is hosting Easter dinner, so we wanted to take her something.  There were so many pretty colors, but she likes white.  She also doesn’t care for anything strongly scented, so the tulips were perfect.  She never plants bulbs in her garden, so I will get them back.

Mr. Midwood was at the home center the other day buying some seed starting mix and the clerk alerted him to a fabulous deal on Easter lilies.

They are marked $7.98, but are programmed for the deep discount of .50.  He snatched up 3 of them for me.  It is so nice to have bits of spring all around the house!

Our broccoli seedlings are growing well.  We are placing them outside on warmer days so that they can begin to harden off.  Soon we will be able to plant them along with peas in the garden.

Today I am off to start some more seeds and take in some sunshine in the yard.  It is a nice warm day, then back to cooler temperatures says the forecast.  Happy Easter!
