Get your gardening shoes on

Are you ready to garden?
I'm putting on my gardening shoes and doing some much needed work out there. Shoveling mulch! Digging out weeds! This sunshine and warmer weather has me about to explode. Don't waste a moment of it.

I plan to...
-feel the breeze on my arms again
-reintroduce my feet to fresh air and that thing called the sun (ooh, it glows, warm)
-play ball in the park with the dog
-hoe with my new "hula ho", presented to me as a gift from our mortgage consultant (come on, how awesome is that?!)
-explore some new plants at the plant sale at the expo center

Other things on my list....make homemade butter, and then biscuits with the buttermilk, make more fresh asparagus, spend some time on the porch, and relax my shoulders. Shoulders? Yes, I've been hunched over a bit with a massive crush of work (which is good!) but I need to stretch it out some, garden some, and breathe some. Some.

I'm loving this weather!!!!! My only hesitation is that I know the good weather will get everyone firing up their smoke-spewing firepits (cough, cough). I much prefer fresh air. I'm just funny that way.

But I'm going to try to not let them spoil my enjoyment of glorious sunshine and blooms popping out everywhere.

If you're at the sale on Sunday, look for me. If you can spot me under my arm loads of plants, that is!

LOVE the shoes, btw. That's one helluva (garden) fashion statement.

The coat gets me more than the shoes!

Isn't it amazing how just that one day (and it really only was one day) of warm weather caused everything in the garden to explode! More please!
