Spring has sprung

I have been waiting for the time change. More daylight during my waking hours!! Hallelujah! The birds are singing. The spring flowers are starting to pop.

Along the back garden path…

I know it is not officially spring yet…but it’s on the way.

What are you enjoying about pre-spring?

Hope Springs Eternal

This time of the year drives me crazy. I want to dig in the garden and play in the dirt, but I know in my heart that it is too early. If I uncover those tender plants, they could freeze. I am fairly certain that the groundhog was wrong about an early spring.

Daffodils have a good start…
“Daisies” have leaf buds…glad I didn’t trim the dead looking stalks!
Tiger lilies are poking throthrough, too.

The time change is next week. I am eagerly anticipating the change…more daylight for being outside in the evenings!

My husband saw the first robin in our yard on February 8th, a good two full weeks early. Spring is coming…hope Springs eternal.

What signs of spring are you seeing?

Later,

Lorrie

Ice & Update

We woke to ice in the trees and bushes on Friday. Thank goodness the temperatures were in the 60’s on Thursday, so the roads were still warm enough to not be super slick. The trees looked like they were encased in glass. Thank goodness it was a still day and the sun appeared to melt the ice with only a little damage to trees and branches…no power outages in our area.

Not enough to get school delayed or cancelled…beautiful!

We did have quite a bit of fog. The mountain was beautiful shrouded in ice and fog, but I did not get a picture of that.

I am working on block number 9 of my paper foundation dresden blocks. I need 12 to make the size quilt that I want. I have not decided what setting I will use for these blocks yet. They are approximately 14 1/2 unfinished.

Number 9 of 12

I also have a couple of other teal/aqua blocks to make for the RSC. They are cut and ready to be sewn. February is quickly becoming history. I need to buckle down tomorrow and get blocks made.

What are you working on this weekend?
