Do you ever wonder what it would be like to live somewhere other than where you live at this moment? I do, and I have thought about what it would be like to live somewhere on East Coast, Mid-West, Texas and even in New Mexico. Why? Well, there are different reasons - such as living near the Atlantic, maybe in the Texas Hill Country, having an old white farmhouse with lots and lots of land or living in the beautiful high desert. All of these reasons sound divine, however truth be told - I am terrified of hurricanes and tornados, cannot tolerate humidity and I don't care much for snow. And at this current time, many of you are battling tremendous amounts of snow - and, well, that just doesn't sound like a whole lot of anything but simply a huge headache.
Where I live, it does get smoking hot in the summer, but we don't have the humidity, well maybe a wee bit now and then, but nothing like east of the Rockies. Though our state is in drought status, it still is beautiful. Today was a bit foggy, but the sun did break later in the afternoon. Birds played outside and chattered amongst themselves.
The roses are pushing out their new reddish green growth and many volunteer flowers are getting bigger each day. Nothing like those freebies, like the Allysum. We seem to have worms on steroids this year. When I was planting the Impatiens, I found a lot of worms in the soil - more like Night Crawler size. I felt bad cutting them in half with my hand trowel......so I covered them up with dirt and hoped that maybe they would still be okay. Can they live with half their body? I guess that would be a good Google search.
The sun was shining through the windows on Monday, so I snapped some photos. I put together a little spring vignette on the entry hall table. Duhgall sat in the Granny Chair and watched while I messed around and polished the furniture. It always feels good to have things tidy. Spring cleaning before Spring. No harm in that, right?
