Just in a dumpy mood

Not a lot is going on here in the delta other than the usual chaos that is quite normal in this household.

I've been looking at Garden catalogs a lot, I guess cause I'm so danged ready for Spring to be sprung around these parts. I even placed an order for some dwarf tree/shrub cherries, veggie seeds, onion sets, and even a few perennials. Jami gave me a few crepe myrtle shrubs that she had removed from her yard and we planted them across the front of the property. I also plan to plant a fast growing tree where James cut down the mimosa that I loved so much (before it took a lightening hit).

James also planted some trees last week that arrived from the National Arbor Foundation that I contributed to awhile back. They're all flowering trees, I sure hope they all live.

I noticed this afternoon, as I was leaving to take the terrorist to Tah Kwan Do, that some of the early blooming bulbs are peeking out of the ground in a couple of spots. I'll go out and take a closer look tomorrow to see if there's a promise of a bud there.

The Chick has a birthday on Monday, can you believe she's going to be 5 already? She'll be starting kindergarten in August! I'm not too sure how that's going to go, I know she already knows as much as most of the teachers so there could be a little power struggle there. :-)

Oh Ms. Brenda, I'm longing for Spring also even though our winter has not been bad at all. I hope everything y'all have planted will grow and bloom and be lovely for you.

FIVE already? Whew! I can relate about the Chick knowing more than the teacher, haha. My little great niece, Ella's birthday falls in the wrong place; she was five last September but can't start kindergarten until NEXT year. She's in preK now and giving them fits 'cause she doesn't believe in naps. :) It's a joke around here that I'm the only one who ever made her take one. I mean, the child was worn out; I put her in the bed and told her in no uncertain terms she WAS stayin' there. After wailing a bit, she was sound asleep. :)

I'm ready for spring too. I'm trying to figure out where I can get me some seeds for herbs because I'm planting my own this year.

Spring can't get here too soon for me.
