The weather has been so lovely with warm and fresh mornings and
cool, pleasant evenings. It's the not too hot, not too cold weather of
late March in South Texas. Oh if only I could capture this weather and
replay it throughout the rest of the spring and into the summer.
Technology has not been able to produce an app yet that will do just
that, but maybe one day.
Until then, I have full blown spring fever and it is coloring my attitude
a fresh crisp green with touches of pale pink. It's such a happy, no
cares in the world type of attitude. It's the kind of weather that
encourages day dreams and trips to the garden center and wanting to
spread joy where ever I go.
I feel so blessed.
I am learning more about which plants die and which ones thrive
throughout spring and summer. Mexican heather is a great perennial
that can stand up to the heat that looms ahead of us. I purchased two
plants last spring and will be buying some more. I checked on my
bottle brush and it is about to bloom again. It was so spectacular
last year and am anxious to see if it repeats the show. I have two
knock out rose bushes that suffered last summer but seem to be
coming back so I will be babying them along now. All of the ginger
that froze during a cold snap is coming back now. It seems to grow
several inches per day. Amazing!
I suppose I should go inside and start fluffing up the house so that
it looks good for a while before we mess it up again over the
weekend ;-) Yes, we can be messy on the weekends! I hope your
weekend is wonderful and full of fun. I know that mine will be.
Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
