It's Springtime in Houston

don't you just LOVE this little flower arrangement?
I am a fresh flower nut!
I need them around me, I mist them every day, sometimes 2X a day, 
to keep them fresh.

when I walk into a room the absence of flowers strikes me.
when they are there I feel like it's home.

Spring flowers

our trees have changed overnight, from barren to bursting forth with little green buds.
driving down the street you realize how suddenly nature can change the landscape,
& it's so beautiful.

yesterday, at the grocer, they had big fluffy Boston ferns for only $9.99,
giant hibiscus trees for $39.95,
and big pots of geranium for $19.95.

i didn't have room in the car for all that I wanted.

so, this misty afternoon I'm going outside to rake leaves, do a little physical labor,
and make plans for the spring plantings.

& I'm gonna love every minute, my hair will be a disaster, but I don't care.

have a great day, ladies !!



  1. Enjoy the fresh air and sunlight, your garden will thank you for it.

Please know how much I value your comments. I read every single one and do hope you will take the time to leave your thoughts. I think InstaGram with the Emojis have take a lot away from blogging, but I love IG too.
