Spring and things

My awesome wagon

Finally! Flowers in bloom outside!

End of an era

the local field mill being ripped down
Most of my posts on spring are at my other blog, but I couldn't help but share my interesting planter, filled with bulbs I saved from a terrible frost. I don't even know what they are! I plan on doing some planters out of old truck toys later this year. Spring is finally here, along with some colorful crocuses blooming while most plants are still sleeping here. Another thing I had to show was the old Scotia Feed Mill being torn down. It caused quite a traffic jam, with all the locals coming to see the mill that refused to fall down. Later in the day it did come down, and as a local monument, it was sad. But it had been empty for years. Hope this finds you well!

The new greenhouse!

Being new in the flower business, meant I had planted seeds- and still do, that I have faith in. I hope they'll come up, but it is total faith that they do sprout. This is why I was so excited to see sprouts! I have diligently followed seed directions for many different types, and only when you begin to see some green stuff does it start to pay off. Dad and I covered the greenhouse this morning, along with our neighbour- Thank you Jim! It was really nice to get it covered, and soon it will be used- but note- no door! not yet anyway, it is to be cut open when we have a door ready to hang.
I hope your putting some faith into your own seedlings too. Have a great day.
