I took a couple days off from work this week. Actually I was sick with the flu but fortunately it was not that flu where you were sure the world was coming to an end. By the 2nd day I was tired of laying around so I grabbed the camera and wanted to see if I could find some signs of Spring. Since I didn't want to scare my neighbors because I looked...well let's just say it was NOT PRETTY I stayed at home and didn't wander the neighborhood. Now I could have shown you the biggest sign of Spring at my house which is the abundance weeds that have shown up in the last couple of weeks but I wanted to show you the fun signs of Spring.
This is my Japanese Maple. I am seeing little buds.
I planted Mums in a pot last year and they reseeded into the bed this year. Seeing them was a pleasant surprise. The allysum comes back every year.
I can't take credit for growing these beauties. I purchased the Hydranga last weekend at Costco. I am going to plant her where I had a Camellia bush that up and died on me last year. Still cannot figure out what happened since it had been planted for a few years.
I know many of my blog friends are enduring some of the worst weather ever and many are suffering from cabin fever. So here is a little something that will help with the thoughts of Spring and to brighten your day with a few flowers. Now the only thing that you will need are crayons or colored pencils...
Just print this out and color away. I don't know about you but I still like to color every once in awhile. Although these days I only color when the grandkids are visiting but I find it very relaxing. I can color away and not think about anything and sometimes we need that.
I hope you are seeing signs of Spring too.
