Spring fever?

I haven't been feeling well...a little under the weather, and now I have a slight fever. Despite a sore throat and other symptoms I am hoping all it is is spring fever.
I can hardly walk through a grocery store without making my way to the garden section to see if there is anything I can get to satisfy my spring fever.
 I forced some beautiful tulip bulbs just by putting them in water. They are looking beautiful and helping with my need for flowers.

I bought a Pansy to put in my watering can on the front porch.

I love the sweet faces of Pansies!

Baby Daffodils are starting to bloom in the yard and I am enjoying them in the house.

My kids are not feeling well either. Chantel has been out of school all week and today Gage came home today with a fever too. Maybe it is just wishful thinking on my part that all it is is Spring fever.

So tomorrow I think Gage and I will just try to rest and get better. Maybe Chantel will be able to go to school, but maybe not. I am hoping to spend some time looking at everybody's blogs and getting inspired to make something pretty :)

In the Flora Doora will hang in the entryway waiting to be filled with flowers and satisfy my other fever...Spring fever.

Thanks for visiting!

Hi Sandy ~ I hope that you and the rest of your household starts feeling better really soon! I understand about the need to bring spring into the house. Your flowers are beautiful! I went to Costco today and brought home a huge bunch of pink tulips and another big bunch of carnations. They look so pretty in the house and are a nice change from the roses I always buy! Feel better soon Sandy! xo

Get well soon Sandy. Lots of lemon and honey drinks and rest.
I have had a sore throat too for too long,due to see a ENT specialist at the end of the month. Pays to get things checked out at my age.:)
Can't wait for our cool weather,had enough of Summer heat. Funny how we always look forward to perfect weather,not too hot,not too cold. Take care xx
