I must be coming across as the worse whiner ever but I'm not, truly, I'm not. Very little gets me down, it's just that we are a few days from April and THIS has to go before I get out at the garden.
Consequently, these days, I feel as though I'm waiting for something to happen. Spring I guess. I can't seem to get into anything and keep looking out the windows hoping that all of a sudden I'll see green grass.
It's hard to believe that it will be the weekend again tomorrow. The weeks seem to be flying by. We will make our monthly trek to the big stores in the morning to stock up on food. I'm just about out of bird seed again. Saturday morning there's a large flea market in one of the small communities nearby. I expect there will be quite a crowd as it's the first one of the year, indoors of course. No doubt we will go. It can be a lot of fun and we usually come home with something we don't really need.
A friend came by last night and brought me two small Grapefruit plants he had started from seed. As I was putting them on a table by the window, he says "What's that growing there?" I said "Huh"?? Here's the story. I got some buckthorn seeds from a lovely person and immediately put four in a small pot before I found out that I should soak them for 24 hours. They had been in the pot for so long that I figured that there was no hope for them so had the pot shoved to one side behind a couple of other plants. Well, much to my surprise and delight one had come up. Oh joy, oh joy. I can't say how excited I was. Now of course I'm treating it like a baby, lol. I did soak the rest and have them planted in a tray on the windowsill so hopefully they will come as well.
A couple of pictures taken this morning.
