    I will worry about the “tea” at a later date…..lol…with or without tea, we will have a good time.  The tea just makes for funnier pictures.  Charlene

    Good evening everyone.  We had an unexpected visitor today….the sun shone all day even though it was supposed to be cloudy….I LOVED it!  A very busy day in my shop….lots of things left which means money in the bank….Yahoo!

    Leroy….do you think it might be too early to be working long days like that?  You want them to heal and for sure don’t want a relapse.

    Our DGS, Kyle (18 yrs) has been sick all week.  DD took him to the Dr on Wednesday.  He has “the influenza” and walking pneumonia.  They did not admit him to the hospital, but want him to stay at DD rather than his Dad’s house because then he is only 2 blocks from the hospital.  One lung is full and they are worried about the other one.  He is a healthy boy, but this influenza has been a bit scarey this year.  He did text me earlier and said he finally can breathe…..I guess that is a good sign.

    Have a good evening everyone.  Charlene

    Stella….when you get into a project, you jump in knee deep, don’t you?  I like to spread the seed starting thing over a 4 month period….helps pass the winter hours.  Looks to me like you are doing just fine….whatever works for you!  I do look forward to more pics this year.  Happy gardening!  Charlene

    Good morning everyone.  It is 25º and dreary.  I heard the sander at our intersection this morning, so I assume we got some of the ice/sleet that we were supposed to get during the night.  Hope it gets warm enough to melt it today.

    Just another Thursday in my shop….garbage day….lunch with friends….and numerous projects to work on.

    I have spent the past ½ hour reading and catching up on threads from yesterday afternnon and last night.  The board is busier….sure can tell we are all getting Spring fever and itching to get our hands dirty…lol.  Have a great day everyone.  Charlene

    When this is in bloom it smells heavenly on our front porch!  I can hardly wait.  Charlene

    Just laughin gat Kathy….or should I say Grieselda?  LOL

    I think I always sign my name at the end of my posts….Charlene….BUT….I am not the only Charlene on board.  Grannyfarmer’s name is Charlene. 

    Some folks prefer to not use their name.  Mamapet was on her long before I got here….she had to change her board name because of puter problems….and she is now Posynut.  I have no idea what her name is, but that is okay…..I respect her privacy.    Charlene

    I agree with you, Bette…..it is beautiful!  I hope we get some more before Spring arrives to add moisture to the ground…..any snow we get now will not be here for long.  Charlene

    Good morning everyone.  It is 28º and appears we got about an inch of snow in the night.  With these temps, I am assuming it is the heavy wet stuff like Bette is talking about.  I don’t think we are supposed to get any more.  I don’t envy Bette having to try to blow that wet snow…..not easy.

    Our kids have an early out today (12:30) due to teachers workshop, but they still eat at the normal time…..they just go directly to the bus after eating.

    Molly….all 3 of DD’s kids have had braces,,,,infact the youngest just got them off, but still has visits.  She has been taking them to ortho appointments for almost 8 years now.  I agree with Wendy….all worth it for a beautiful smille for the rest of their lives.

    Del…..we haven’t had any mice this year….and I am now wishing I hadn’t said that…..I may have just jimxed myself…..lol.  I have stuck steel wool every where, but they seem to find holes if they want in.  I guess it has been 2 years since we had mice.  Maybe you will soon have the whole family trapped and removed…..or else JB will.  Haha

    Just another day in my shop for me.  Have a great Wednesday everyone.  Charlene

    Steve….Mother Nature has a strange way of decorating….you got ice and we got hoarfrost which the weather guys refer to as freezing fog.

    We DO NOT expect to see beautiful flower gardens in these 1st set of pictures, although it sounds like some of you already have things blooming.  Thie will be fun to see the progress of our gardens, and like Ili stated….many of us will learn alot more about gardening in different zones.

    Steve…..I agree with Leslie and Molly…..take pictures before, during, and after.  We all love seeing those kind of pics.  With all the seeds you have been gathering from here, I expect your entire yard will soon be nothing but flowers….lol.

    Wanda, Molly, and Leslie….don’t worry about it….we are supposed to leave stuff for the birds to eat in winter months, aren’t we?  Ron told us to not clear off our gardens in the fall….and we listened to him…..how is that for a good excuse…blame Ron?  LOL

    Like Joan and Julie….mine will be snow pictures.  Charlene

    Janet….that is very kind of you…..the pericallis are tempting, but my good sense tells me that maybe I have enough seeds for this year….maybe next year.  The plants you shared are planted in a big pot in my shop….in a west window.  I hope they grow, but I also hope they don’t get too big before I can plant them outside the end of May. Thanks again  Charlene

    Good morning everyone.  It is 25º and an uneventful weather day again…..all of the snow is south of us this time.  That is okay with me, but we do have more in the 7 day forecast.  It is so close to March and anything we get after that doesn’t stay very long.  So glad Spring is just around the corner.

    Steve…..I sure hope you get to feeling better soon.  I agree getting wet and cold is probably not the best thing for you right now.

    Just anopther day in my shop for me…..have a good day everyone.  Charlene
