Ahhh, spring is here!



Today is absolutely beautiful outside, and the birds are singing loudly. We made a trip to the garden store for our phlox, last year we waited a little too long and they were gone. I can't wait to plant them! Our crocuses are very happy, I've been keeping them sprayed ever since the deer incident. I'm anticipating our hyacinths being in full bloom this weekend since it is supposed to be in the 70's all weekend, and they are well on their way. Today I opened up several of the windows and let the house air out. It smelled so good to have fresh air in the house. I suddenly feel like cleaning everything too! I LOVE SPRING!

I kept my windows closed. It was still a little bit too cold here. Maybe tomorrow...

But I do like to open my bedroom window at night and hear the spring peepers.

Your crocuses look really pretty. I don't usually care too much for them, but they look nice all wide open like that.

You are both doing better than me in the flower department. I don't have the right kind planted.

I opened my windows too. Makes it noisy because I live close to a freeway. I don't have a place to plant flowers. I wonder if I plant some outside here if they would survive. We get a fair amount of vandalism.

What's a "spring peeper"? That doesn't sound good.

Spring peepers are those things that make peeping noises at night in the summer. I think they're crickets, maybe frogs too. I like the sound!
