Worth the Wait

When the irises bloom it is a sure sign that spring is here to stay.

Something else worth waiting for was this green pottery jug. I spotted it a couple of weeks ago, and luckily it was still there by the time I made up my mind. I couldn't resist the green shade of this one.

And finally a good book is worth the wait for that last chapter and satisfying conclusion.

Gardening Journals

In the past I found these small journals and used them to record gardening notes and pictures. I looked back through them and thought I'd share one or two pages from each one.

The first one was from our old 3898 address.



This tree would be gone the next year, and this flowerbed would become a patio area.






I don't have any more of these journals, but they are nice reminders of past gardening experiences and memories.

Thanks for dropping by. So happy that warm springlike weather is coming tomorrow.

Where Is Spring?

Today I wanted to plant these seeds I've been saving from cereal boxes, but a cold snap delayed gardening plans. Instead I painted flowers.

 Also reading this book about three very different sisters.

And finally a spring display

It's April's turn to surprise us. Returning perennials are such a delight. We have yet to make it to a gardening center to buy a few new plants for the front porch containers. Unpredictable weather may be one of the reasons. So in the meantime I painted some swirly springlike blossoms on a blank canvas.

I also spent some time on my booth rearranging displays.

And I usually find something at another booth for myself to bring home, like this tall vase of Blue Mountain Pottery, Ontario, Canada.

After putting away Easter  decorations I chose a few family photos to display.

One of these days I will probably tire of this squirrel, but for now I like him holding the wooden tulip. A touch of whimsy never hurts.

Wishing you a wonderful's still cool enough in my neighborhood for a sweater...really am ready for some warmth.
