Blooms and Planting

What a diiference a day makes.

On Tuesday we woke up to snow and on Wednesday it was warm and things were in bloom.

I love this tulip tree in our yard.

So beautiful, of course my photography skills do not do it justice.

These bushes bloom frequently during the winter here.

Little Buckaroo picked this for me, of course there was not a stem on it to put in water. But, it was the thought that counts.

So delicate and beautiful.

Spring is on the way!!!! I love Spring, it is so refreshing and renewing.
Does anyone else get excited when the seed catalogs arrive in your mailbox? I am not a very good gardener, but every year it gets a little better. I love to sit down with a cup of coffee and look through the catalogs sure that my garden will look just like their pictures.
Every year (I guess it is that renewal feeling), I vow that I am going to have an awesome vegetable garden and that I will spend the mornings weeding and taking care of all the wonderful vegetables that will eventually grace our plates. Well, then reality hits, we leave town a few days or get involved in some cool kid project and the weeds take over.
But, I can grow some mean zucchini, the neighbors get so tired of seeing me come to their door with a bag full of that green vegetable hanging out.
I tilled the garden last week, fun for the Little Buckaroo’s playing in the freshly turned soil with their dump trucks and tractors. I will get my seeds soon and get started. My great plans will then be executed, but if you see me at the Farmer’s Market buying vegetables, feel pity on me and don’t laugh to my face. If you do, I will show up at your door with zucchini!
Until tomorrow,
The Park Wife
