Fickle Spring...after soaring temps (into the 80's), like so many of you, it is chilly here this morning. Chilly enough that I nudged the heat on. Even in a sweatshirt, I am feeling the nip inside and my hands are cold as I type. Grrrrr
Oh well, nothing I can do about it. This roller coaster weather seems to be good for some things though. The lilac outside my front office window has more blooms than ever! I've been cutting some to bring inside and I wish you could catch a whiff of the perfume through your computer. Just heavenly.
And our Iris are getting ready to bloom. After some very spotty years where we only had a couple of blooms, they are back in force this year. Within a couple of days I should be cutting some of those too.
How was your weekend? Mine was very nice. After missing my get together with Dee while we were on vacation, the two of us met up again Saturday morning. It was so nice to sit and sip and chat together while we worked on our knitting (both of us knitting on socks). I feel so fortunate that Dee lives close by and that we can get together regularly.
Yesterday Fletch and I headed out to get some more plants since our local greenhouse had not had so many things out yet. We headed to Otts Nursery in Schwenksville and boy were they busy! It's a fun and wonderful place to wander around. Fletch picked out some red romaine, I found several types of basil and they had snapdragons too. We could not resist some new houseplants as well.
Fletch has already planted the basil for me in a pot that will stay by the patio - within easy reach when I am cooking.
I made Brunswick Stew and cornbread for dinner. It was chilly enough to be a perfect night for that. Later in the evening we settled in to watch Bob Dylan - Live in Newport 1963 - 1965 which we both enjoyed a lot (could have done without all the fundraising breaks though). Of course, Dylan looked to be about 15 in some of those early shots!
Now it's back to Monday and the start of another work week - the last one in April and we will be a third of the way through the year! That does not seem possible.
Hope your weekend was a good one and cheers to the week ahead!
