Ahh Spring!

Since my thoughts on Spring seem to be all over the place, I’ll just start with the fact that I probably bought too many flowers.  Is it possible to do something like buy too many?   One pot was overflowing with violas, petunias, begonias, impatients, it was really pretty but too full to the point that hanging the pot caused the shepherds hook to nearly fall over…  I couldn’t have that so my new mission was to take out all the flowers and place in other areas.   Which by the way looks better!   I spent almost the entire day (today) working on planting more flowers and more veggies.   If all the onions planted come up… we’ll have more than we know what to do with! Winking smile   Beans, beans and more beans…. we’ve got plenty planted now we wait.  Lettuce is coming up.  And so are the zinnias, can’t eat zinnias but they’ll sure be pretty standing tall in the garden.    I noticed too that some plants died off over the winter months.  I guess I would have died too if I had to some how keep my roots warm throughout the blizzard-y days and nights.

Did I mention that we may be rescuing a dog from the shelter?   Well my hubby and I are still discussing it… we are trying to decide which kind would be best for our household.   Our cat won’t appreciate it.    Kitty is rather funny in so many odd ways, like he doesn’t like to be picked up and held.  He loves to chase me around the house or pick a fight with me.   I’m getting tired of his antics.  I’ve been ready for a doggie.   I need an animal that likes me!

Tettelstai, thank you for your comment. We did get a dog, she's about 4 yrs old, just as sweet as she can be! She sticks to me like velcro. The cat is living on our back porch, its inclosed so he feels safe. It will take a long,long while before that cat can trust that dog... who knows maybe never?? I think the dog, Dolina, would just like to play, I don't think she would actually hurt the cat. ;)
