Spring Forward

I guess I've been inside listening to news too much about the Snowquester or Snowmaggedon...whatever you Northerners are calling this unbearable white stuff these days; anyway, I completely missed that Spring has already sprung here.  Normally, I am totally delighted but ugh...the weeds have sprung right along with it.  I knew it was a bad sign when Saturday, a customer - a new customer, at the shop came in and said "Wow! the inside sure looks a lot different than the outside."  And I knew exactly what she meant...the weeds have just  taken over.  I wanted to give her my sad story about how I can't really can't garden since my cancer treatment...but really, I just hate weeding like most every person on the planet.  So, I just kept my mouth shut and vowed to weed it this week...at some point...I'm pretty sure, eventually...I'll get to it.

Anywho, stuff I didn't plant is coming up just beautifully at the house.  I wandered thru and found wild violets and strawberries; azaleas already popping out and even a few camellias hanging on until temps get a bit warmer (any day now).  I even made this adorable toad-friend; though he (maybe she - how do you tell) has a death wish and keeps choosing to hop around the driveway.  And unfortunately, after a long day at the shop, toad-friend is the last thing on my mind...hop swift my friend.
