Spring break has officially begun for me! Oddly enough, my semester has been going so well that it kind of snuck up on me. More often than not, I'm beyond ready for the break, but this year, not so much. Which is not to say that I won't enjoy it, because I definitely will. I plan to do a lot of relaxing but I also want to work in my yard as much as possible too. First item on my to-do list is to buy a new lawn mower. I'm getting an electric one so I don't have to bother with gasoline or with starting one. I owned an electric one years ago and it suited me just fine.
Meanwhile, the tulips continue to look beautiful.
I also put this lavender plant in a pot for the time being; I've planted lavender in the flower bed before and it never seems to survive, even though the sandy soil should be a good fit for it. I'll see how it does in a pot.
My new door mat looks pretty alongside a big pot of geraniums; those petunias in the far right of the photo still need planted somewhere but I haven't decided where just yet.
Vera, I hope you got your Gracie fix! Thanks for asking about her.
I was fortunate enough to meet up with another internet friend yesterday. Larissa, a blogger I've read for years, was vacationing in the area with her family, and took time out of her schedule to meet me for tea and a chat. It was so good to meet her in person and get to know her better. She is as lovely as I thought she'd be. I know that social media can have negative implications in our lives, but it has also enriched our lives in so many ways too. I think it's like anything else; it all depends on how you use it. And I'm grateful for the connections I've made through it.
Have a great week!
