Yearning for Spring

I am so anxious for spring and all the flowers it brings! While Chantel and I were at Walmart tonight I made her go with me to check the barren garden center. She said "Mom, it is still freezing outside!" I know she is right..but there were some primroses and some pansies..not my favorite flowers but at least something was out there! This week we are suppose to have some decent weather. Hopefully I'll be able to spend some time cleaning up the yard and getting ready for these flowers I am longing for.
Until then I look back at pictures from last year and look forward to the coming season!

I have a little "proud Mom" thing to share too...Wyatt received student of the month for perseverance. Wyatt has a high IQ, but for reasons probably due to the premature birth of he and Gage, he struggles with getting things done quickly. So he has to put a lot more time into it than some of the other kids. But he works hard and that is why his teacher gave him this award. I'm so proud of him.

Thanks for visiting--have a great day!

Congratulations Wyatt!! Way to go!! He looks so proud holding his Award :)

It's been feeling like Spring here in Michigan ~ yesterday's temps' were up around the low 50's, and it's suppose to be in the 40's for the next several days!! It's been a really strange winter so snow for quite some time, then we get hit with a lot of it...warms up and goes away....get hit with more snow...and again, warms up to melt it away ? I'm not complaining, lol, as I don't particularly like snow :)

Have a great day!
Warmest hugs, Brenda

I too am yearning for Spring. Hubby and I went to Lowes for Bead board on Sat. I so wanted to say let's check out the garden area. Then I thought, Jann, don't be silly, it's only January (almost Feb.) I decided I'd wait till next trip. Congrats to Wyatt!

Oh my gosh, look at those window boxes! Are they yours??? They're gorgeous! And congratulations to your son for his award!

Love your blog. It's got me wanting to plant some flowers too. I have barrels in front of my shop. Can I still put pansies and primroses out??? Not too late???

I'll be back.
