Thank you for all the comments on the bathroom update. We are enjoying it – and enjoying it being done!
Now for some garden news…finally…I was really pleased to see some things out in the garden this week!
Can you see those? Tulip shoots! I should have more coming up, but those might be later tulips. I also see a ton of daylilies, which I knew were there, and some daffodils mixed in there.
If anyone wants daylilies, let me know. I have platoons of them. These are the really tall old fashioned orange ones. A lot of these will be moving from this bed as it is the full sun bed and I have other plans for it.
Our magnolia tree survived that wretched winter:
Unfortunately, we have to cut a big branch off of it because it is pushing the fence over. Or we need to cut away part of the fence. However, this tree has buds!
I am pretty excited about having a magnolia. I know next to nothing about trees and not much about shrubs, so I have some learnin’ to do. We need shrubbery as we are pulling out a bunch this year.
Some things that didn’t fare so well? Those of you that read the post about the snow slide off the roof – well, the snow from that slide is almost gone except this part:
What it left in its wake was damaged ornaments.
That’s not supposed to be in 2 pieces. Neither is my sundial:
The snow and ice is heavy when it comes rushing off a roof. It snapped the metal clean in half. This is why you wouldn’t want to be standing under it. 😯
Now I know where *not* to have stuff come next winter.
At least spring is finally starting.
I also have to show off my new colorful shoes!
We were out shopping the other day and John was looking for shoes. I was not, but isn’t that when you always find something? These are a brand like Dansko and they are so, so comfortable. I couldn’t believe how comfy they were and so I impulse bought them.
They aren’t leather, but cloth. They don’t match any of my clothes, but I don’t care 😀 I wonder if I can get away with wearing them with shorts?
