I have to admit that I have been a wee bit down lately. Not terrible, just sort of blah. I know it will pass soon and that it probably has something do with the weather which is hovering somewhere between Winter and Spring. I am so eager to get into my gardens, and in a couple of weeks, I will be starting some seeds, so that will definitely lift my spirits. In the meantime, my wonderful husband has helped by bringing home some cheerful blooms.
Now, I doubt you will believe me when I tell you this, but I've had these hydrangea since March 6. They were given to me for free because the florist said they had already been in her shop for a week. So they are over a month old, and they still look fantastic. I figure they must sense my mood and want to stick around to help. After all, they are my favourite flower in the entire world.
The tulips are such a beautiful color, and Spring is always just around the corner when we see tulips in the stores. Also a sure sign of a change in season are the geese. They've been returning for about a week now. I've also spotted a few crows.
These spider mums are white but have been painted a lovely shade of peach. I've been seeing more and more painted flowers in the stores. Sometimes they're dyed too. I'm typically not a big fan of the dyeing and painting as they often use gaudy colors, but this peach is alright.
I hope everyone is enjoying a good start to the last week of March.
