The Wait for Spring


I've been under the weather for the last few days and so haven't accomplished a whole lot.
I'm feeling a bit better today and spent a few hours doing errands.
In my travels I just happened to pass by Apache Seeds where I picked up a bale of seed starting mix.
By extraordinary coincidence I also passed right by Holes garden center!
This lovely primrose sneaked into my hands while I wasn't looking, as did one of her sisters.
I'm not quite sure how they managed it as my hands were full of seed packets at the time!

The wait for spring has begun. . .

I wish I could just send you some geraniums to baby.....just for the fun. They always feel like spring!

We wish you could have been at the wedding too. Sniff, sniff :(

I love geranuims! I used hate them because I thought they were so ordinary.
But who can argue with a plant that blooms it's heart out from spring through fall with very little care?
Not me, that's for sure.
I think last year was the first time in a long time that I actually had to BUY geraniums!
I had to have a least a few though.

You're too funny...I love how the flowers just snuck into your hands! I think I'll go to the camera store and see if a new camera will just sneak into my hands...

Chanda: let me know if that works for you. :)
Brenda: I get primroses every year to help me wait for spring.
Aunty Nancy: LOL!

Hope you're feeling better now. I think we are all counting the days till spring is here!

Nothing tides a gardener over like unplanned plant purchases! Primroses just say spring don't they?? Enjoy:)

Oh, honey, thank you for the grin I'm having right now! I needed that. And you just showed me what else I need-- some flowers!

Hope you are feeling better.
