Not quite sure what’s going on this year, but I’m really antsy for spring. It may have something to do with the rarely shining sun this time of year on the wet coast. So when the sun peeks out for even a quick moment, I love to get out there and act as if it’s there for the long haul.
Maybe I’ll blame it on Cyndi…
We were so very blessed when friend Cyndi offering up a bunch of garden tools and this fantastic wheelbarrow, as she was moving. EVERYTHING was an upgrade to what we had (if we had it). So rather than put it all away, I simply removed it out of the truck and put it to work that very day.
Thanks, friend! It was a treat to clip with blades that cut and rakes that picked up more than 4 leaves at a time due to broken tines.
So, let me take you for a little walk since I’m out here anyway…
I really should have cut these hydrangeas down last fall, but I was still decorating with them. And I used them again not even a week ago. So I decided to just leave the old blooms on until I see new growth. My neighbours may think I’m behind on things, but I can’t stand throwing stuff out I can still use.
Tip: staging with hydrangeas or leaves and such is best done when freshly picked. Work with them before they turn crispy.
Hmm… wonder what I should do with this dresser this summer… last year this was my hydrangea stuffed dresser so I should to try something different… maybe plant stuff in it? Thinking…
I’m coming guys, hang in there! My junk sits and patiently waits for a good scrub. The budding tree appears to be telling me not to wait too much longer!
Hmmm… the snowdrops might be saying get on with it PRONTO after all. Aren’t they amazing?
And so the yard dance begins. I even mowed my lawn about a week ago I was so exited!
And then it snowed.
We may be a little mixed up, but at least I know my junk is waiting and ready for just the right moment. I mean, it’s not like it can get any rustier… can it?!
Ok then, I’ll wait!
Who else is a tad anxious to get outside?
