The First Day of Spring!

~feels like the first day of summer~
In my 39 years of married life, I have never had to put screens back on the windows as early as March! It is almost 80 here today and was as warm yesterday too. After a winter of no snow to speak of and now this! Wow! I have bulbs flowering that usually are not in bloom for another 3 weeks. I hope it stays this way, but oh boy, Mother Nature could still hit us with snow and frosty temps~

But for now it is simply beautiful out. I did some yard cleanup today and this is what greets me when I come in. We went to the Boston Flower Show the other day and I got some wonderful flowers, some for here,

and some for here!
~Happy Spring~

Beautiful photos Donna. Ga is breaking all kind of weather records this month. The longest spell of 80+ degree weather,,, I think we are going on 7 days in the 80's for this time of year, and our pollen count this morning in Atlanta was over 9,000. The highest ever recorded. But the weather is beautiful. So are your flowers . Have a great day
