Spring has Sprung

Not the wittiest title, but you get the idea.
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!

Hi, i was browsing some blogs and came across yours a couple days ago. I am really interested in this post, specifically the part about saving money burning wood. How much did your husband spend on all that wood?

Does he have a blog i can follow?

Hey Jersey Girl!

You talk my freaking language. I've toned it way down on my blog. lol
I love your flowers. Not one stinking flower here. I live closer to NYC.
We do have buds on the trees.

Nice to me you,

Cant wait to see what you do with the yard! Found you via Cape on the corner! Id love it if you stop by and visit me and follow if you so desire.
The idea of sipping cocktails sounds so relaxing. Meanwhile we are moving and my wine will be sipped while digging through boxes lol.:(lol

Thanks for coming by my blog and for following. I saw your post on the dark blue walls, I like dark colors too. Our powder room is really a dark faux finish burgandy/brown. I think dark adds drama! I am following you back.
