Sanna's Bag

“I never seem to have what I need when I need it. I’m going to make a belt-bag that’s bigger on the inside than on the outside, and just carry everything with me.”

How does your garden grow?

The days are getting longer and the daffodills are poking out.
Yay daffs! I love you so much!

If you look closely, you can see the flower head through the translucent skin of the bud. bloom, baby, bloom!

I want to run around the yard with pompoms and a short skirt doing encouraging cheers. Magnolia buds swelling in fuzzy anticipation . . Bigger, bigger, more, more more!

The poor old plum tree is just about lying down on the job. Between shade and heavy snows, it doesn't stand much of a chance, but it keeps trying!

And the apple tree in all it's mossy strength stands ready for surging sap and abundant bloom. Give me an A, give me a p, give me another p, give me L, give me E, give me s! What's that spell? Apples, apples, yes, yes, yes! Yayyyy!! Whoop, whoop! Yeeha!

    Our crazy plum tree is already blooming! That January hot spell we had made our plants think it was spring!

    We're still at long way from daffodils here, buried under a foot or more of snow. I'll get my fix from you 'til out time comes.

    I ran a bunch of peelings out to my compost bin tonight and was shocked by how much light there was at 7:30 pm. Granted it was a full moon, but it wasn't up until later.

    When did it start getting lighter? HOOOORAY! Spring is coming nearer.

    My daffodils (we call them jonquils in Okla.,but as my beloved reminds me..."You aren't in Oklahoma anymore, Dorothy.") anyway, my daffys haven't ventured as tall as yours yet.

    I love the smell of spring.
