38 but feels like 30….

degrees.  What kind of morning is that for a spring day in mid April?  At least the sun is shining again and it is to reach the mid or upper 50s today.

I cleaned out dresser drawers yesterday and found I am well equipped with summer clothing.  Summer slacks and capris in many colors.  Where do I get all of this stuff?  Also a couple dozen T’s, now if it would just get warm enough to wear them.

A picture of some of the columbines we had growing at home.  This picture was taken with my first digital camera which was 1 megapixel and was a gift to me from Rae and Hugh.  I sure do miss my flowers,

I have 2 pots that I will put flowers in this year.  My hen and chickens didn’t over winter well and I am hoping they manage to snap out of it.

Have a great day!  Stay safe and be happy!!

  5. Well blast! Didn't your wintry weather come right over here and hit us one, too. Brrrr...so cold. The only good thing is that I did not get lulled into putting out any posies...not a day before Memorial Day and that's the rule.

  6. Forgot to say that I've never seen Columbines so large and with such pretty color combinations. Have you ever been able to find any like that?

  7. B-R-R! You're darn tootin' is cold today. Over here it went from almost 80 to 35. Now it's in the 40s and only expected to mayyybeee hit 50. Nutso weather.

    After sitting up the entire night Monday into Tuesday for the darn red moon, I finally got to sleep late last night and only now dragging myself out of the sack. Can't focus yet. Need coffee and Sam & Lucy need their food, too.
    Guess it's back to my winter clothes today.....if I get dressed ;)

    Xoxoxo

  13. Two days ago it was 83 in the house so I turned on the AC. It poured yesterday, and now I have the heat on again. I thought we were ready for about five months of non-stop AC.

    Love,

  25. Good morning, Beth! Hope your day will be very good. Here, our sky is blue and we are going to reach almost 30º C.
    I wanted to show you that place where I'm going to stay this summer, at least for a week: San José, in a National Park called Cabo de Gata, Almería, in the south of Spain. Almería is the place where my husband and I were born.

    If you want to see more Spanish landscapes, just have a look at this blog, Cuaderno de Viajes.

    Thanks! :)

  26. Very cold up here, too. We had snow Wednesday morning, so your beautiful flowers are a welcome sight. I'm glad you got a picture of them to remember them by at least. :)

  27. Lovely Granny Bonnets, I do like all the colour combinations but have lost many over the years. Keep warm, I hope your spring returns quickly.
    Happy Easter.

  28. Supposed to be near 80 all week here---have switched my wardrobe to summer and am already wearing shorts! The white legs on folks around here is BLINDING! Enjoy Easter and the warming weather!

  29. I was about to say we call them Granny's bonnets but whiteangel got in there first, LOL I've got them popping up all over they self seed, the drawback is that they revert back to the wild type and lose all the lovely colour, nevertheless they are a welcome springlike addition to the garden, Your colours are beautiful.
