Ready to get dirty!

I haven't been able to do any REAL weekend gardening since February. Spring is springing up all around me, and I'm missing out. The past four weekends I've either been out of town or have had guests from out of town, and I've enjoyed every minute of visiting with my friends. My best friend in the world was married on March 9th. Then on March 17th a good friend visited and we went to Jackson's St. Paddy's Day Parade, Sweet Potato Queens and all. Then this past Saturday I travelled to Oxford to see Michael Feldman's Whad'Ya Know radio show. I've been one busy bee! That also means that I haven't been in the yard. I got some weeding done last Monday evening, but then the next day I came down with a terrible cold that I've been trying to get rid of for a solid week. Now that I am finally feeling like my old self again, I fly to Seattle early tomorrow morning for 2-days of meetings. Whew! I can't wait to be home on Saturday. I'm already making lists of things I need to get done. I've vowed to stay home every weekend in April so I can play in the yard.

I have been able to get a few snapshots of my blooming yard over the past few weeks. Unfortunately, I didn't get a photo of my tulips, but they were quite pretty.

I just hate when other living gets in the way of spring gardening. I've scheduled every Friday in April to be a vacation day to extend my weekends of gardening. I can't wait!

Carol, that sounds wonderful! Truthfully, this weekend I probably should have let at least a little bit of laundry get in the way of gardening! But to me, spring weekends are for being in the yard, not the laundry room. Enjoy your time off!
