Happy Happy Spring!

Happy Spring to You!

I got a little worried this morning when I woke up to flurries, but that soon ended to become a nice sunny day. At least I could put on a lighter jacket.

It's wonderful to see the daffodils and crocus sprouting outside of my living room window.  It is always a glorious and amazing sight to me to see the first shoots coming out of the ground.  A few weeks ago, I started some seeds in my basement.  It is not the ideal location to grow them, but it seems to be working.  The key is to use seed sprouting mix instead of potting soil.  The beans, sugar snap peas, lettuce, sunflowers and pumpkins on a stick have sprouted.  I couldn't be more excited!  I had to start the sunflowers inside this year since the squirrels always each the seeds before they can sprout.  I hope I'm fooling them this year.

I'm getting excited that Gardenfest is almost here.  April 5th is coming pretty quickly.  Everything seems to be going smoothly (knock on wood) and the registration is increasing.

There are some estate sales in McHenry this weekend.  It should be fun.  I stopped at the antique stores in Hebron today, but didn't find any treasures.  It was nice to just be out in the sun.

I will probably have to wait another week before I can start to clean up my garden since the forecast is for snow on Monday/Tuesday.  There is still so much snow in my yard that it will probably still be there in June.  Hopefully spring break week won't be too cold.  I would love to get up to Lake Geneva to walk around.
