Spring has Sprung.........Finally!!!

Spring has finally sprung in NW Ohio!!  Yesterday was a toasty 84 degrees and it felt wonderful.  I see the warmer weather found many of you as well.  Kinda makes you forget all the cold and snow last winter.....almost.  It's so nice to see all the flowers that were planted last fall popping up.  Here is the first one that I spotted.  It looks a bit lonely! 

 I have noticed many places where I had bulbs planted, have not come up yet.  I think I need to take a picture of the flower beds in a couple of weeks to know where I need more planted.  I would like to think I could remember where to plant more next fall, but................the memory isn't what it was!! 

Last week we had a couple of days that were a bit warmer so my son and I brought out my new toy!!  I have been wishing for a little power washer so I could use it on our patio to speed up the cleaning a bit.  Well, after quite a while of  talking about it, DH brought one home from Lowe's!!  It works great!!  I have been warned though not to hold the wand too close to things....siding....paint......or I will ruin them. It almost makes cleaning outside fun!!

I took Easter decorations out a couple of weeks ago and sat them on the couch in our living room.  There they patiently sat until I decided to set them out.

I found this tin egg at a garage sale last summer for $1.  Love it.

Mr. Bunny is next to my cinnamon scented blackened beeswax tarts.

These goodies came a couple of weeks ago from my friend Ann.  It was a late birthday present.  (Making me feel really guilty b/c her birthday was way back in Nov and I haven't given her anything yet!!)  Stop by A Hole In The Basket Primitives and check out her wonderful Blog!!  Thanks, Ann.

I need to get some more of this greenery.  I just love it.

That's all for today.  I am trying to make myself do some more spring cleaning, but I think I need to sit and stitch for a while. My pile of patterns seems to be growing!!  Thanks for stopping by.

    It's hard to remember what needs more planted and what needs to be split. I am the same as you I know I have a lot of splitting to do but I can't remember where??? Guess I have some work ahead of me!
