Happy Spring!

I can't believe that the first weekend of spring was so...springy! I got so much done, not all in the garden, but stuff that needed doing and a little gardening.  Saturday and Sunday mornings were chilly, so I did some housework, paid bills, and did laundry. And since Eric was home for spring break, I did a little baking - yummy banana bread.

It was so nice to be able to  put the sheets on the line.  I feel good about saving a little electricity, and I just enjoy the process. Being outdoors, hearing the birds singing, folding up fresh smelling laundry. It doesn't get any better!

Even the chickens seemed to be in a good mood about the weather. And boy, are they laying! It's a good thing we have some regular egg customers.

We even went out to Lowe's to see what they had in the garden center.. Not much yet, but I bought a sweet almond bush, and  a flat of violas. I like the smaller violas, rather than the larger pansies. We were picking out some trees, then realized we had the wrong vehicle. Can't put much in a Ford Focus!

This plant stand is on the screened back porch. I'll be showing more of it and the gardens soon.

Did everyone get a chance to see the "super moon"?  Pretty cool, wasn't it?

Have a good week and thank you for visiting.

I want some of your banana bread...looks so yummy with the butter melting...Mmmmmm
Aren't violas so sweet...their little faces...I love them. Sounds like you had a great weekend.
I made a spring Easter tree.... not quite finished and I spent most of the weekend making it. So fun. Tomorrow I'll make the eggs to hang on it. Didn't know if I wanted eggs but once I got it in it's place, it needs MORE.
Take care...xoso Sandy O

Everything looks amazing, very inviting pictures. I can't wait to see your herb garden, I know I'm a bit of a herbal geek! :))) I love lemon balm as well it's too late for me too pot it for it's everywhere. I think I'll make some banana bread tomorrow haven't made any in a bit.
We did check out the moon Saturday very dreamy.

Hi Cindy, thank you for stopping by to say hello and am so glad you found me, because I just enjoyed stopping by here for a visit. I love the way sheets smell after they hang on the line. Yes, my chickens are laying a lot as well. So glad you have pretty weather! blessings,Kathleen

I can almost smell that banana bread! Unfortunately, we had too much cloud cover to see the super moon. Have a nice day! Twyla
