According to the calendar, it’s Spring, but the drooping jet stream has done its best to get the ground hog fired and keep old man winter around for a few more weeks. Even so, Easter is around the corner. We’ll just have to wear fleece hats instead of an Easter bonnet.
Because winter has lasted SO LONG this year, I have a terrible case of Spring fever. This week I put away any leftover winter stuff that was hiding in my back room and began “feathering my nest” to bring spring alive in my house. I resurrected all of my bunny rabbits, pastel Spring silk flower arrangements, and other Spring trinkets from the basement. And voila! Spring! Indoors at least.
When I trolled the grocery store this week they had hydrangeas that were round and a beautiful shade of blue. Little did I know she would jump into my cart and follow me to the check out station. The same thing happened to me at the Big Lots store when a cute little purple perennial did the same thing. So, with the help of these two plants, my final touch to my Spring transformation was a couple of REAL flowering plants.
In this spirit of my spring housecleaning/sprucing up, I decided to give my blog the look of spring, too. Ordinarily, I’m not a lover of pink–it’s a little too girly-girl for me, but this new Bouquet Theme just tripped my trigger. I LOVE it! I just hope I haven’t alienated all the males in the reading community. Remember, guys, it take a real man to wear pink, so you should be able to look at it for a couple of minutes. 🙂
So even though it’s still as cold as a witch’s tit outside, I’m sending you all this bouquet of tulips. In other years I could have picked them in my own yard, but not this year. We still have over a foot of snow on the ground for Pete’s sake!
Have a great Spring Day wherever you are — except for those of you in the southern hemisphere, that is.
