Touch of Spring---in the house!
Like so many others, I am ready for spring. The dark, dreary days with no sunshine get old. I am ready to be able to go outside & enjoy the beauty of God's creation. I love finding the first wild violets of spring, the first crocus popping thru the ground, the rhubarb coming up in the garden, and of course the songs of the songbirds....ahh!!!!!
But, for now, I have to enjoy a touch of spring, in the house! I bought this amaryllis bulb for 1.75 on clearance. It was already starting to sprout in the box. I had no idea if it would grow properly or not. I figured for that price, it was worth a try. Look at the outcome. It was only about 2 weeks from the day of purchase to this point!! Now, to do what the box says & see if I can get it to bloom again at a later date!
My mom gave me this violet plant sometime around Christmas. I told her I KILL violets. I can never keep them alive. I asked her WHERE to put it. She said they like a south window the best... so...it is in my craft room, where I have a real nice south window. Imagine my surprise when I was in there the other day & saw this!!!!! Another sign of spring!!
I am working on my March ornament. I love how it looks so far!!!!! Hopefully I can update soon with the finish!
have a great day!!
