The sun is shining today, the skies are blue and my mood is much better, despite it still being cold. Tomorrow's forecast is for temperatures in the 40's - a veritable heat wave!
I spent yesterday downstairs in the winter garden room, checking for any new growth on the plants and giving them a bit of a drink. I think by next week, I'll be able to begin feeding them with a weak fertilizer to give them a jump start on the coming warmer weather.
The geraniums are still blooming. I'm "babysitting" this one for my neighbor.
The asparagus ferns are looking a bit tired, as usual for this time of year, but they will spring right back as soon as I put them outside. This bunch started from a $1.47, 2 inch pot about three years ago.
The Mandevilla vine is showing new sprouts, so I may have luck with it yet! I hope so as they were a bit expensive last year. If they don't make it I'll just have to go back to Morning Glories.
This little African Violet was given to me last year by Miss Shirley of Shirley's Yarns and Crafts, where I have my knitting class. I couldn't get a good photo of it, but it's almost pure white with just a hint of lavender.
Spikeums finally found his spot in the sun and settled down for a long nap. He was one happy kitty until Sluggo decided it was time for "Romper Room" activities and pounced on him.
I was browsing through last year's photos and came upon this one of the garden in full bloom and our favorite spot to sit in the late afternoon with a glass of wine. Ah yes, this time will come again. The nice thing about the seasons is that one always has something to look forward to. And I am definitely looking forward to Spring!
Life is Good! Hugs to All,
