For weeks the weather has been flirting with actual warmth, and now it is proper hot. And it is only April 7th. *contented sigh* While it will mostly stay like this until it is full-fledged summer, in the Midwest where I grew up, well, I would still be expecting at least one more snow before June. I love New Jersey.It sits nicely and securely above our shower doors and it looks better than I had thought it would! Now the little plants just need to grow and spread and fill in some and it will be perfect!
All my perennials are either up or starting to come up. Even my balloon plant, a plant I've had trouble with in the past, is starting to come up already. The ground is nearly ready for the vegetables I started indoors back in February, and yesterday we finally finished this!
We made it from a length of rain gutter. We had extra and made a window box for my art room; we fastened another one to the bottom of our gate for little annual vines to grow out of. Three planters for $5. Not bad.
And! As I sit here typing this and looking out my window, there is a yellow finch at our bird feeder! Last year we only had red house finches. Exciting!
A side, but no less exciting note, Stevie will be here on tomorrow and is staying until the 14th. :D
