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.”

Wallow in the last of the sun.

It's a cloudless morning, and predicted to remain cloudless all day.  The last roses of summer are blooming, and, although I have a shipload of tasks to do today, I'm going to go outside and embrace the rays.  How many more days will there be this year that I can walk outside without a raincoat?

I have two bags of daffodil bulbs to plant.  This is the perfect, God-given day for it.  Then, come March, after months of rain and days so cloudy that you don't throw a shadow, I'll be able to look outside and see YELLOW!  I do love those happy daffs.

    I love those daffy-down-dillys too. They fairly shout "Spring is here!" My poor husband planted some the other day and has a sore knee as a result! No gain without pain? Alice

    For some reason I pictured you dressed in a flowing gauzy gown, flowers in your hair, and dancing around tossing petals from a small basket dangling on your arm.
    I hope the day was enjoyable for you!

    Carpe Diem. It would be a crime to waste a perfectly good sunshine day inside doing chores. The chores will still be there when the sun has long gone.

    And daffodils? They are the very best.

    Daffodils are the some of the best spring flowers.

    Hey! If I remember, those bulbs are like a phoenix. Renew every year. In spite of my erudite article on gardening I know nothing. Surprise! I heard daffodils a are a type of onion. You came up as spam on my blog and I couldn't get on here to invite you yesterday, That second post gave me lacy curlicues in my eyes. I wonder if I can teach my dog to run a computer in time for the judging It was way awesome. Maybe because anonymous. Dunno. Thanx for posting!

    If you win you have to host next week, and you're looking good to me. If you don't want to host you can tag someone. There was no one to tag for me, I'm not sure if Auntie Usually does them or not. She's in France this week. You are good at this!

    As a landscaper, I still haven't lost my sense of wonder at the lowly bulb. Boring and brown, it's stuck in the ground in fall only to be forgotten until spring when it lets loose with an explosion of color--just when you need it. Bulbs make me feel like a little kid again.

    What an industrious gardner you are-- hooray for bright yellow after all that heart-squashing gray.
