Spring, Beautiful Spring!

I am happy to report that spring has finally sprung in my part of the country! It has been beautiful here the past couple of days. The birds are singing and building their nests. The froggies serenade me as I hang up my laundry. My daffodils are budding. Yeah Spring!

I have been busy getting my hands dirty in my gardens. I got industrious with a spade shovel and removed a bunch of Irises from my flower beds. I decided to give them a new home in the ditch along the road. Hopefully they will fill in among the trees and make a nice bed of flowers along with the Tiger Lilies that are there. Joel ran the rototiller in a portion of our vegetable garden last night. I planted my lettuces, radishes, Swiss chard, spinach, onions, turnips and sweet peas. I can't wait till I can have my first salad from our garden. Yum, there is nothing like it!

However, since I have been so busy outside lately, my house is showing tell tale signs of neglect. Therefore, I am called in to cleaning mode. Scrubbing bathrooms, laundry, sweeping, mopping, vacuuming and general de-cluttering are my lot for the day. Times a wastin' so I must get a move on it!
