What’s Blooming – sort of

It still feels like we are in the grip of late winter.  Well, I guess we are, but who’s counting anymore.  I am taking gardening into my own hands if Mother nature isn’t cooperating!   This weekend we are going down to the Capital District Flower Show outside of Albany. YAY!!!!  I can’t believe how excited I am to see flowers and greenery.flowershow


The last indoor flower show I went to was when we lived in IL and went to the big one in Chicago, which was very cool.  This will be much needed while we wait for everything to warm up around here and to settle down from a bit of a hectic week.

I also received a coloring book for adults today.  I read an article online about how coloring was supposed to be really a good way for adults to destress and I thought it would be fun, so I ordered a book online. Apparently everyone else read the same article because the book I wanted was on backorder.  But now it is in my grabby hands since it arrived today and it is gorgeous!



Linkie: Secret Garden: An Inky Treasure Hunt and Coloring Book


It has a cover over the art paper pad, and you probably could even color the cover if you want 😀

I bought a big set of  some gel pens to use for this book and they arrived a while ago waiting to be used:



Don’t these look like fun?



There are hidden pictures and puzzles in the book, too – so this should keep me occupied for a while when I get stressed out 😀


Have a great weekend and I will be reporting back with flower pictures! I can’t wait!!

    Flowers – it’s been so long since we’ve seen them blooming outside. Have a great time and it will be so nice to see your pictures.

    Those coloring books are very popular here too. I do something similar: make Japanese puzzles. By thinking logic and counting you make a picture. Mine are black and white but you can also buy them in color now I saw. I think I’m doing this for over 5 years already, it’s relaxing for me.

    Hope the flower show was good.
