It's getting exciting around here!

We may be buried under the snowdrifts outside, but on the inside???

Things are popping up out of the dirt non stop!

Look what I found when I turned on the lights this morning . . .

Calla bulb sprouts

My calla lilies are starting to come up!

If you saw what they were going to look like, you'd know why I was so excited.

Are these not fabulous?

And you should be excited too  . . . because you will be able to buy these at my Plant Sale in May!  (Although I may put a few aside for myself . . ahem. )

I was up late Saturday, planting the next round of seeds. Tomatoes, more lobelia, petunias, browellia, and annual rudbeckia . . . so much fun.

But, it's not all gardening around here. After choking down three loaves of Dempster's bread last week, I was up early baking bread this morning.

I love, love, love homemade bread.

Now I'm off to do a little housecleaning.

Because, is there anything worse than coming home to a kitchen full of dirty dishes after going for a walk by the river in the absolutely, gorgeous sunshine?

Maybe a laundry room full of dirty clothes. . . ( and yes, I have that too . . )
