I didn't go down to the art dungeon last night like I thought I was going to. I had that glass of wine and got so sleepy! I guess I should have, because all night long I was dreaming of beautiful scenes that involved arched walls, roses on vines, fairies and rainbows! I wish I could draw what I see. Hmmmmm.....maybe I can try.
Looking out the window I am reminded of Shelly's post at "What's Going On With Us", talking about the need to see green leaves and flowers again. Spring is teasing us so badly right now. Some daffodils are out, but not blooming, up on the mountain yet. I am about an hour and half from my sister Molly, and at this time of year we talk back and forth pretty often about what's blooming and what isn't! It is so hard for me because she is south of me, and that puts me a few weeks behind her in the garden. She will call and say "the Hepatica is blooming, the Sudafed Rose is blooming it's head off" now, it's not reaaallly called that, we nicknamed it that, it's real name is Rose Zephrine Drouhin, but that is too hard to pronounce and we like "Sudie" better. Hers really does bloom it's head off, mine almost died! Now I'm left with a sucker from it, and I hope that sucker makes it this year!!! I will confess to another obsession I/we have.... we love to rescue native plants. That is another reason why it is so hard to wait until spring. I am so excited thinking about all the things I planted last year and looking forward to their arrival. You will be seeing some of them too. Lots of garden pictures to come!
It's time for some coffee, and my cat Pearl, is headbutting me over the keyboard....I guess maybe they might want to eat! Have a good day today and I'll see yall later!
