It's about time too. I guess Mother Nature doesn't give a hoot about the adorable peeptoe shoes and animal print flats I got for the Spring, now does she? Funny how the day before the 1st official day of Spring I saw not a sign of Spring, not even a bloom, but wake up Sunday morning and what do I see? Spring has Sprung in NJ. Outside these was bulbage, flowers and buds (oh my) a plenty. Was Mother Nature listening about those new shoes? Nope. She is toying with us by sprinkling us with some snow yesterday. Yeah, Freakin snow. I am not amused.
Here are the 1st signs of Spring on Delicious Way people.. my own little slice of Heaven.
Daffodils and Tulips (note to self - must mulch)
We have a few plans for the backyard this Spring but this year I am keeping the my list very small. And when I say "my list" you know I really mean the hubby's list. Mostly just moving the fire pit and lounge area to the another side of the yard that we hardly use - for privacy. I plan to plant a few perennials in the front of the house and a few more in the back. That's about it .. for now.
I thought I would share my husband's latest obsession. Wood. My yard basically looks like a lumber yard. Don't believe me? See below. And that's not even half of it.
Sidenote (just for my husband's sake) we are saving a ton of $ on our heating bill.
It's all the about the wood (and not the good kind)...
The swing will get a fresh coat of spray paint this year. I decided on a different palette of colors for the outside. Currently it is a chocolate brown, but I am thinking greys, turquoise and a bright yellow. Can you picture it? What do you think?
Soon the sunroom will get back to its gorgeous splendor and I am looking forward to those days. Sipping a few cocktails, enjoying the flowers and greenery and watching the hubby while he does yard work .. hopefully with no shirt on. Mmmhmmm, I am sure looking forward to those days.
I'd like to give a shout you to myself. My picture taking skills are seriously no joke. I think I am getting the hang of it. What do you think?
happy weekend peeps!
