Bringing Spring Inside
I have posted before that my daughter works at Home
Depot in the garden department. It is really, nice
having someone who feels about plants like I do, and
when she sees something really unique she brings it home.
I have some really neat things growing in my flowerbeds.
This is Emilie in her apron at Home Depot. One of the really
handy things she does is when I need spray paint and I
go to Home Depot, she knows the combination to the spray
paint cage and I don't have to go hunt someone down to get some
for me. My collection of spray paint has grown since she works there.
Yesterday we were driving by, my husband and myself and
I could see all of these great tulips and daffodils out in
front. When I got home and she was getting ready to go to work
I asked if she would get some and bring a few home when she
came home on her lunch hour. Which she did and today,
I have been so happy with these flowers in the house.
I have been so blue and depressed since the fog and the
gloomy days and even if the sun comes out and I try to
get out in it for even five minutes. Nothing has lifted
my spirits like having these flowers in my kitchen.
Even hanging out with my chickens hasn't helped like
it has in the past. I like winter okay, but I have decided
that I need to go somewhere that has a beach, and sand,
and nice warm gentle breezes. I am tired of sweatshirts.
Maybe I do need a chick or two.
Have a great Tuesday,
