It is FINALLY spring. It has been a lllllooooooonnnnngggggg, cold, grey winter/ “spring” ’round these parts this year (was that country enough for y’all?).
It’s almost the May long weekend and we are finally getting sun. I finally had to cut the lawn. I finally had to weed out the dandelions (which took Paul and I two hours each! . . . WITH a handy dandy dandelion digger-upper thingy). Some of you may think that weeding and mowing the lawn is not something that one would be looking forward to, but I totally was! Nuts.
But, I had my reasons for this . . . two reasons . . .
One: having to weed and mow a lawn means I have a lawn! WHOOT! I’m so happy where I’m living now. A real house! Who would have thought
Two: If the grass and dandelions are growing (weeds included) it means that the sun is shining and bringing everything back to life . . . from the doldrums of winter. S.A.D. anyone? Vitamin D is my best friend . . . best natural head meds you can find!
THREE (I said I had two reasons, oh well): My garden is growing! Rhubard is up, raspberry stalks are sprouting, and the seeds are in the dirt. Yay! I planted some stuff that I plan to use in my cupcakes, and I will be able to say I really made them! Like, really!
This was my Mother’s Day Spring Bouquet. Happy belated Mother’s day to all the fabulous Mother’s out there . . . especially to my own!
These next ones were an order for Mother’s Day cupcakes. I had free rein to try whatever I wanted, so I got out my tools and set to work!
I love the orange rosette on these ones!
Happy spring everyone . . . knock on wood . . . fingers crossed . . . salt over shoulder . . . and all other superstitions that could work in our favour and keep the sun out!
