Good Morning Sunshine

Well, Hello SPRING!

All is well with SM and I here in the lovely Piedmont of North Carolina.  Just another boring Winter to get through.  I've been busy with work.  SM has regained full use of his shoulders and all is right with the world.  

Yeah us!

We've had another warm Winter all things considered.  A week or two of freaken FREEZING weather but now (just like last year) we are having an early Spring.

Our Maple is blooming before the Peach.  THAT has never happened.  

I told SM not to prune the Peach this year.  We always get a frost that kills the blooms or the fruit.  I'm sure that will happen again this year so we might as well enjoy a pretty tree.

This morning was a wonderful 61 degrees so I busted out the rake and got in the beds to clean things up a bit.

Gosh it feels good to play in the dirt!

I even planted lettuce and carrots!  CRIKEY!

Expectations are that our early Spring will lead to another "hotter than hell" Summer so I thought let's just go ahead and put things in earlier than I would normally.

Heck, I might be planting summer squash and tomatoes in April!

Stay tuned...I'm going to try and be a good girl and blog a bit more now that gardening season is here.


  1. Good to hear from you and know all is well. Since we've still got a good two months before I can even think about any garden work, I think I'll come on down and play in your dirt for a while. ;o}

  2. I feel cheated today because here in New York yesterday was 73* and sunny, and today is a down pour. Had the weather held I was planning to do some fertilizing and mulching with compost before things start to emerge. I've already been around raking, cleaning and pruning. I did go out in the sleet and put wire cloches over my crocuses and primroses so they don't get eaten.

  3. Good to hear from you. We are starting seeds now and I am learning about how to plant in NC. The weather's been gorgeous (except this morning's 39 degrees) and sunny! Enjoy your gardening chores!

  4. You are such a tease.... I am thrilled that I can at least SEE my garden beds. That is about as far as I can take it. However, I have my seeding set-up up and am raring to go!

  5. Yeah, not really looking forward to this coming summer.

  6. Looking forward to following your blog again. We moved to Leland NC (10 mins outside of Wilmington) Nov 2015. We just bought a house so I now have a new garden journey to blog about. :-)

  7. You are sweet enough and i wish you all the best and i am sure you are a good girl thanks for sharing this happy post with us keep it up!
