You may remember my post about “Amping Up my Curb Appeal” last fall. I wrote about pulling all the weeds in my front garden but I didn’t tell you guys that I planted 100 bulbs after the weeds were pulled. Because the weather has been unseasonably cold here, I have been waiting on the edge of my seat for them to shoot up and bloom. That day finally came this weekend!
So I just took down the last of my Christmas decorations this week. That’s pretty bad. The lights were on my porch railing for 4 months. I took down the garland last month but the festive lights decided to hang around. April starts Sunday so I officially decided enough was enough.
The good new is……
Spring is here! Flowers are blooming! Grass is growing! Because of all this a Spring wreath for my front door was in order. When I was home last week I mentioned this to my mom on a whim and she whisked me to the flower shop where she works to find me one. I looked at all their beautiful wreaths but couldn’t find the perfect one.
So she custom-made me one. When you can’t find exactly what you want you should make it! I picked out a nice plain one for her to embellish.
Summer weather in March is insane! I hate hot weather and so does my dog so he got a haircut about 3 months early. It was 75 degrees outside for a week. I’ve been wearing shorts, t-shirts, and sandals and I’ve already gotten a sunburn. This cannot be Missouri weather.
