It Felt Like Spring

Today the smell of freshly mowed grass was in the air and

sunlight shone through the windows of our home.

Today I saw baby chicks and turkeys (itty bitty fluffy cuteness) at a farm store we stopped by,

but they didn't have my favorite breed

(and I didn't have my camera with me to take a photo of their fluffy cuteness).

Today a friend and I planted Italian parsley, Bright Lights Swiss chard and Merlot lettuce

outside in one of our wine barrels.

I hope it doesn't get too cold tonight.

Today I bought new garden gloves--

not pink, but a purple with flowers.

Today I noticed summer bulbs are now for sale...

I am particularly fond of Stargazer and Casablanca lilies;

oh--and lily of the valley bulbs.

Today felt like spring...

I hope tomorrow will too.

Lenten Blessings,



we are currently using container gardening for many of our edibles. Some things growing in wine barrel halves are: culinary lavender (several kinds), strawberries, a raspberry, various herbs and some veggies. I really, really like this method; it has worked well up to now for us.


sorry I am feeling rather lazy tonight, so all these photos are from previous years:)

Warm spring weather makes me itchy to get in the garden. We still have a few more weeks before it is safe to plant the cold weather veggies and the hot weather stuff can't go in until mid-May...but it am still itching to get out there and get going!! :)

Maybe you will get an early spring (hoping)...I know how much you love gardening:)
Blessings, Aimee
PS: Forced forsythia branches inside again this year as per your wonderful post! TY for teaching me how to bring lemony sunshine into my house:)

Yesterday was cold and rainy here, but today the sun is back and snow is melting. Still way to early to plant anything outdoors, though your post inspires me :-)

Lental blessings and Happy spring.

I am SO happy that you have some sun today--it always lifts the spirit to see blue skies and sunshine (or at least it does that for me)! Today is beautiful also, but I understand this weekend will bring back the rain showers...I just have to keep telling myself that is what keeps our area so green.
Lenten Blessings to you + yours,
