Beautiful Day

After an extremely mild winter, spring has arrived full force here on coastal Washington.  We’ve had several days of temps in the 70’s, and no rain to speak of in the last week or so.  Everything is budding and blooming and growing.

We celebrated this sunny Saturday with a trip to Home Depot’s nursery section.  While I drooled over dogwood trees and lace-leaf maples, I restricted my purchases to a few pots of rosemary, a bleeding heart to replace the one I mistakenly pulled last year, some sweet pea seeds, and a lovely cream colored hydrangea.  I am blessed to have a husband who will take care of all the planting for me.

He also washes cars.  Mine hadn’t been washed since last fall.  Fortunately it’s a pale grass green color and doesn’t show all the pollen that’s covered it in the last month….it just doesn’t shine.  Well, it’s all shiny now, bless his heart.

And it’s so nice outside, we may barbecue for dinner!  In April!!
