Spring is starting to spring in my garden. I've walked around and all the plants I worried about in the freeze are putting up tiny new shoots and leaves. There are even a couple of flowers.
The spirea started it. It's opened more in the couple of days since I took this. I think I'm going to get a nice snowball effect from it this year.
The white iris are always very early. These came from a neighbor's yard. I found one tuber on the sidewalk and brought it home and now they're everywhere, but only a couple have bloomed so far.
And, the grape hyacinths I planted last year have given me a few flowers. Just three, but I hope there will be more. More important than flowers this year, the bulbs lived through last summer. That was my worry. They'll get bigger and stronger and I believe I'll get more flowers from them as they do, but only if they can survive the Texas summer heat.
Then, it was my turn to come in and upholster it. We chose a nice fabric that has sketches of dogs on it. What better to use to upholster something we're building for the dogs. It's not quite done yet. I want to line the inside and there are a lot of threads left to cut. But, for the most part, it looks pretty good...but don't look at it too close.
So, that's how we spent our week. Rob and I spent Saturday morning shopping. We only needed a few things, and for the most part we only bought a few things, but we laughed a LOT.
Everybody have a great Monday! Challenge yourself to something you're not sure you can do. You'll probably be surprised at how well you do it.
