I must admit to playing hooky over the last week. The weather has been warming up and while I had to dodge some rain, I was able to do my “fall cleanup” for a few days. The flower beds are ready for spring weeding and as soon as it dries up some, I’ll be out there pulling grass, dandelions, and other assorted weeds that have already sprung up. The redbuds are fully blooming and the dogwoods are coming on. My red dogwood survived the winter cold and the deer with most of the flowers intact. so I am happy about that. The daffodils are almost done though. I have been picking them to put in the kitchen, but they haven’t lasted over long. It is still early to buy any flowers for planting, but I’m getting the urge to. We are having a high deer fence put around our garden this spring because we are tired of the deer, raccoons, rabbits, possums, etc. eating up everything including the fruit trees. I might as well just been giving the wildlife the money the last few years. LOL
I did spend some time making some new aceo/gift tags. I have my next project in mind, but I have to do some photo research before I can start. Here’s a peek at the aceos. I’ll be listing some of them in the next few days.
