Let me start by saying that I can't remember ever having a more beautiful March than we just had. The weather was near perfect. Warm sunny days and cool nights. The grass turned green....yeah, I get to mow....the azaleas burst forth with big lovely blooms....and the roses added more beauty to my yard.
Each morning I was drawn outdoors by the sun shining through the japanese maple just outside my window
It has been easy to let an hour or more slip by without even knowing it
This azaleas seemed to compete with the maple for attention. The sun was shining on it like a spotlight. "Look at me, look at me".
I also planted my first garden this month. My husband made me a small raised bed garden. I planted tomatoes, bell peppers, hot peppers, asparagus, cucumbers and squash. (not enough room for okra....next year we will enlarge/ha)
I know you can't tell much about this picture but I plan to show you the progress weekly. (hope it's not just weeds)
We even had the pool opened up in March....wow....never opened it before May. It has been an unusual spring but I have enjoyed every minute of it. Well except for the pollen that continues to cover the area!!
I can't conclude my March post without telling you of the fun I had while staying with Lila while her mom and dad took a weekend trip to Dallas. They enjoyed their trip but I'm guessing not anymore than Nanny did. My girl and I shopped, went for long walks, ate watermelon, popsicles and spaghetti. Look at my little partner:
After all of the walks and shopping, she relaxed in her chair and enjoyed a few cartoons.....
Well that sums up my March. It was filled with fun and sun. How was yours?
I stayed in this afternoon to catch up with some much neglected cleaning and blogging. It's 90 degrees and windy.....I don't like wind!!
See you soon, I promise!!
