...and dirt under my finger nails.
It has been a long, cold winter for Dayton, Ohio. God has finally decided to show some pity on us and give us a spring teaser. It's supposed to reach the high 50's today.
I'm a gardener. I love my flower gardens. The past couple of winters were relatively mild, so my crocuses shot-up in January. Not so this year- luckily. January is too early even for crocuses. But now that it is nearing March, and I'm trying to convince myself this spring teaser is something more, I thought I'd go out and search for signs of life. Late winter's brown canvas has got me down, I need some green. Lo and behold... A couple of weeks ago I went shopping at my favorite store, Alley Cat Chic. I bought some spring treats to lift my mood. The small, white bird was only $3.99. It must be a good-luck charm because that very week I spotted my first robin. The roses are my favorite color of green, I just had to have them. Would you guess that bulb is not real? I think it may be the best 65 cents I've ever spent. They all helped to carry me to today and my sweet, little crocus shoots bravelypoking out to say "hello."
