First Day of Spring

Happy first day of Spring!

first day of spring

It is already starting to feel like summer down here on the Gulf coast. The azaleas are just ready to bust out; many of our trees are already fully green; it is time to head to the plant store to replace our shade garden that was killed by the freeze this winter. We are in that "tweener" weather when it is not quite hot enough for the AC. Outside it is pretty pleasant, but my little quilting aerie gets kind of hot--that pretty leaded-glass window doesn't open, the heat in the house rises up and the the sun beating on the roof and my south-facing window all make it pretty warm in there. In spite of that and with several fans running, I spent quite a few hours in there today.

I'll give a full report of what I did later. I just wanted to say hello and send my greetings!

Hello back to you too!!( picture me waving). My Sewing room is the hottest part of the house too, I'm hoping it's that way in winter but for summer I had fans blowing. Those Azaleas are beautiful! Such welcome colour after winter.

ugh. i caved and made mark turn on the AC last thursday - i was dying! i'm the one who has made the rule about holding off on the AC until mid-april, but i feel so guilty for breaking my own rule!
