When Will It End

We are working on our 4th straight day of rain here. It is getting old. With the Spring time weather quickly approaching, I am looking forward to getting outside and doing some yard and garden work. I was recently able to find some 10-10-10 garden fertilizer for the bargain price of $11 for a 33 lb bag. Last year and the year before, I could go to Home Depot and buy a 40lb bag of the stuff for about $7-9. This year it had shot up to almost $20 a bag. I usually use 2-3 bags of the fertilizer in the Spring, when I give the gardens a good helping of "food". This year I had decided that if I could not find the fertilizer at a reasonable price, then the plants would have to go hungry. Luckily with me finding this deal on the fertilizer, all plants got fed and it should not be long to see things starting to shoot up out of the ground. The daffodils have already bloomed but they will be gone soon. It will be nice to have some color in the gardens again.

The sun is finally out here!! Woo hoo! We did NEED the rain though, and I am grateful we got it (for several days)! It is WONDERFUL to witness the magic of spring color! No doubt you will have it soon!

Coming down from Pa to the gulf coast of Texas was a bit of a shocker for us. I first walked into my house and we had roses blooming out FEBRUARY!! Course I do have to feel sorry for the poor rose bushes as I've been known to "kill" plastic plants... Anyways, keep your head up, spring is definitely in the air!! And congrats on some lucky bargain hunting!

Oh, how I love the beginning of spring!
But we are in autumn here in Oz and its been such a mixed up summer that it hardly feels like we are ready for the wheel to turn already.
Enjoy your spring planning, it's a wonderful time of year indeed.
