Spring is here!

Spring has arrived for us finally. All of my spring bulbs are up and some are blooming. I was at menards last weekend and they had the most beautiful rose bushes all colors and variety's on sale. $2.99 each plus a dollar rebate for up to 4 bushes. I plan to plant them tommorrow along with two more miniature rose bushes my husband got for me as a gift. I have a rose garden that will now be full and beautiful by my patio. We have gotten a ton of rain, so I'm sure I'll be busy digging up my new flower bed for the front of our house. I think we have managed to raked all our leaves now, I realized exactly how out of shape I was the day after all my raking, because I felt like an old lady. Not to self, excersise a lot!!!
I have talked my husband into several projects this spring; first we are moving one of our mini sttorage barns to the back of our property by the garden, we'll paint it to match the house and plant some annuals and then spring bulbs in the fall. then we are taking out the window in front of my kitchen sink since it is only about 24 inches high and you have to be at least 5'5" to see outside and replace it with a large window that will alow me to see my beautiful rose garden. We are adding another section of kitchen cabinets and countertops as well as a DISHWASHER! How awesome is that? The other window in the kitchen is also being taken out and replaced with a door to go directly out to the back patio. I feel so lucky and am excited for the changes. I plan to use the new section of cabinets as a scrapbooking nook for myself so I can work on projects and have to keep putting it all away.
Indeed spring is here and many fresh and new things are coming. God Bless and happy blogging, Christina

I can't wait to see your flowers. I know they will be beautiful.It seems like a day of raking can make any one feel out of shape so don't feel bad.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and welcome to the HYC!

You have a lovely blog and I think it is so interesting that you were Amish. I belong to the Apostolic Christian faith which is rather conservative but not so much so as the Amish faith! Your life must be so interesting.

I agree, as soon as I started journalling again I could focus on what I was doing so much better.

The garden season is just beginning here (so far just crocuses). My tulips and daffodils won't bloom until the end of the month and on into May.

Please pop by again--I'd love to travel on this journey with you!

Flowers are always a great thing to have. You'll have to post some pictures so we can see.
