SPRING Where Art Thou???

Hi there everyone! How has your week been? It's been nice here, a few days of cold and a few flurries. Next week it will be in the 30's and low 40's.......Spring, I am looking for you......perhaps it is right around the corner???? 
I have been thinking about what I want to plant when Spring comes....not sure I will go hog wild this year. Maybe just some tomato plants and flowers will do. I can't seem to get onions and zucchini growing, guess there is too much shade in my back yard and the dirt is too hard. Maybe I should try growing things in the front yard in full sun. Course the dirt is no better there either. Well, I still have a few months to ponder this situation.

I do so look forward to Spring and Summer and the beautiful flowers. Not sure where I got this picture, but this rose sure is pretty.
I know where these tulips come from....my front yard, it's a sure sign of spring when the tulips bloom.
Here's a colorful little Spring poem for you to read......
One of my pretty yellow roses in the front yard.
So tomorrow I shall be working on our taxes....I have been putting them off for a week now, for some reason I cannot get myself to tackle that job. But I know once I get to it, I will really get into it. I enjoy organizing, shuffling and filing papers, (must be a throw back from being a secretary or something.)

I went out today, to the Salvation Army to get some bread, mail the mortgage at the Post Office. Get some gas and coffee. Cookies and chocolate donut for JP's lunch. Oh and a corn dog. We shared that. That was the extent of my outing and I almost had enough. Gosh people are crazy drivers on Friday....they have gone wild!!! Payday and they want to get the weekend started......"get out of my way, you move too slow old lady." Gosh, if I didn't have to go to the store and run a few errands, I would be content to stay at home, I have become a home-body for sure!!!!

Well, time to close here before I bore you to death!!! You all take care and keep looking up cause better days are here again....if only the "left" would let it happen!!!! Cheers ~ Louise

Hi Diana.....Thanks on the flower pictures. Oh I love lilacs too. I did have a bush, but it did not get enough sun and died. We do love our weekends, don't we. You have a great one too.

What beautiful flowers, Louise! I hope this spring your flowers are beautiful too! And should be tasty tomatoes! :-)
Have a great weekend,
Love, Elena

Louise, You certainly have my understanding about manic drivers. ...they have NO patience what so ever. I want to get a bumper sticker that says "Caution Blind Driver" just to see if any would back off...I always they should have left home earlier. LOL. Love the flowers. We truly have had a mild winter...just kind of crazy. Blessings to you and yours, xoxo, Susie

I am looking forward to Spring too. It can't come soon enough. I love your flowers. I can't seem to grow anything. Our dirt is like a brick and you can't dig in it. I only use pots and throw them away each year. When I saw your first picture I could only think Aflac!

Hi Elena....thanks for stopping by. Yes looking forward to a few tomatoes for the garden too.

Hi Susie.....Whoa...."caution Blind Driver" I doubt people would back off because it's a "me first" generation. Love when someone passes by me really fast cause they are in a rush and I meet them again at a stop light....they didn't get very far, did they. Yes, looking back it's not been too bad of a winter. But we shall see what March brings...not over yet.
