Not even February 1st and the crocuses are already starting to bloom!
Ack! I was outside yesterday and the first crocuses are already blooming! I’m so far behind. I still have bulbs sitting in the storage room waiting to be put in the ground!
Even the best-laid plans can go haywire when you have to work around weather, work, and other obligations.
It looks like I’m already into the spring madness. Seems every year I get myself into the same pickle. I [...]
Right now many of us gardeners are champing at the bit to get back out in the garden. If there is a warm moment, and the ground is clear of snow, we may find ourselves pacing back and forth in front of areas we know contain crocus, daffodil, and tulip bulbs, looking for signs of growth.

Remodeling/redecorating both inside and out.
I’ve been contemplating what I want to start including in my blog for the new year. I’m thinking of doing a series of videos on my redecorating/remodel of the extra bedroom. That will give me the opportunity to hone my video skills, which I’ve not used for a while, and get some really good information out to people wanting to spruce up a room.
