First things – I need your help. Anyone know what this perfume is? I’ve had this bottle for years, and if it ever had a label, it was gone when I got it and I have zero idea what it is. Smells white floral, I was thinking some version of an Evyan White Shoulders type, but that’s not it, the woman’s profile is different than the one on White Shoulders. Help!
And just like that, it is spring. All the trees are green or greening, my daffodils have all bloomed, and now it is the tulips turn. The pink ladies have shot up all their green and should be disappearing soon, only to return with those gorgeous pink flowers in August.
It is almost Hummingbird time here! This week probably, so a few feeders are out to get the scouts. Then it is oriole time. I put the jelly out for them a while ago because a lot of birds and apparently the squirrels like it. It was a tough winter, they all need the energy. The watermelons, melons, broccoli, beets and sunflower sprouts are getting big for their peat pots and are now out during the day to harden up for May planting.
Planting is crazy this year – I’ve put in another cherry tree, two peach trees, am adding another big weeping cherry for the big carpet of green on my front lawn that I hate. That big expanse of lawn just bugs me. It is now getting broken up, but it took me a couple of years to decide what should go there.
Some winters you think will never end. Why is that? I remember childbirth being like that, I thought it would never be over, and then it just was, and all that before time was just nothing – well, until the next baby, and that brought it right the hell back!. It feels like two winters have just melded into each other, and this is the real spring.
Where I live, we are probably less restricted, but I keep thinking about the thing I really want to do when this is at an end, and mostly I want a nice long lunch with my lady friends – drinks, laughter, getting sleepy from too much wine and sun. I go out with family, but friends are still reluctant to go out and eat all together.
What are you going to do with spring finally arrives for you?
