Signs of Spring?
It's only February 20th, but spring arrives early in Texas. Look at these cheery faces!
I heard a noise on the back patio this morning and saw that our Mourning Dove friends are back. They seemed to think that my grapevine candle chandelier was a good nesting spot.
They eventually changed their minds, and made themselves at home in their usual kleenex box on top of the electric meter.
Here are some more signs of spring: Emily spotted some vegetable seedlings at the store this past weekend. We got some spinach, romaine and butter crunch lettuce, broccoli, brussel sprouts, and cabbage.
I also picked up some bright green Irish moss. I get two pots each spring and enjoy them until the hot summer begins.
With all of these signs of spring, I figured it was time to pack away the winter decorations. No more pinecones, cinnamon sticks and holly berries.
It's time for bunnies, nests and eggs!
Do you see any signs of spring at your house? If not quite yet, what are you most looking forward to?
