Okay, I am waaaay jumping the gun here, but finally seeing something poke out of the ground other than an icicle!
Of course, some of the garden is still buried, but I will take whatever right now. There is some foliage that was frozen green from last fall, which is cool. That will die off when the new growth comes in. However, it is nice to see a little bit of color.
I think this might be a snowdrop. One of my fellow garden club members gave me a snowdrop last year. Of course, April is really late for these, but it finally poked through!
And some tulip buds! This is the part of the garden that gets the most sun and the snow melted off it first. I am so happy to see those teeny, tiny buds!
I might shovel the snow off the rest of the garden and free it up this weekend.
We took another visit to Radiance Manor to make sure all was well while waiting for this endless closing. We just signed another 30 day extension on the contract. I had a meltdown about it the other day because I just wanted an update about where we are in the process and no one seems willing to give me one and nobody seems to even understand why that upsets me (which makes me more upset). I really don’t ask for things very often and because of that, if I do ask, I expect a response. On top of work stress and it just wasn’t a very good day.
Someday the reward will be worth it. Such a beautiful house.
There is a little nook off the kitchen that we are going to use as a breakfast area with a little 2-person table.
We aren’t sure what is underneath that awful red linoleum. Would that it be hardwood, but probably not. If it is not, we will be putting down a dark cork along with the kitchen.
Fingers crossed that we might get the bikes out this weekend if the rain goes away!
