Thinking of Spring

It's not spring, it's more than a month away, but oh, it's starting to look like it anyway. With temperatures in the high 60's and low 70's the plants don't know what to think.
 The Crocus and Hyacinths are starting to bloom in the garden and I love it.  I think I'd like to have a garden that had only blues, purples and whites in it.

    Such lovely flowers. And young tomato plants! Those are exciting indeed. (Also hooray for duct tape. I'll have to remember that trick as I break a few tomato branches every year.)

    Thanks so much for your kind comments the past week or two. I really appreciated them.


A Bit of a Milestone

Friday I went to the commissary with Mac to grocery shop and I managed to get all of it done without having to sit down and rest.  That ma...
