Signs of Spring

Mim’s having a “Signs of Spring” contest, and of course my daughter and I just partook of our favorite harbinger of spring. Our first trip to the greenhouse. We have a green house that is about a 1/4 of a mile from our house. It is run by a nice Amish family. Each spring since moving down here we take a walk over after the Monkey gets home from school, we take the camera and just wander looking at all the lush green. Most of the flowers aren’t even in bloom yet, but we like to look at the promise that is waiting within. We do several trips like this throughout the season, but the first one is always the most special. So here you are Mim, our favorite harbinger of Spring, the local greenhouse.

Oh and this is Evanrude’s favorite spring announcement, real patches of sunshine on the floor to nap in…even if they are in a messy 11 year olds room.

P.S. Mim, I recently cast on for the Lightweight Mountain Peaks Shawl while I was down and out with the flu, and your pattern was clear and simple enough to read even with severe brain fog and flu fatigue! Loving it!

    Aw, kitty belly! *rub rub rub*

    Oh…I’m dreaming of spring flowers and green grass and weather that doesn’t require an extra 10 minutes in the morning just to get ready to go outside…

    OK…I’ll take a half dozen of each flower. Do you deliver??…and plant?
