Kinda of.It's definitely not the spring I am used to, but it is definitely spring!
I'm turning into a wimp I think! Last week it was 90 degrees and it was feelin a bit warm for me. But yesterday and today it is in the low 70's and I am chilly! What the heck? When we lived in Utah and Colorado the 70's was warm to me! I think Arizona is twisting me!
It does have a bonus here right now though..the orange blossoms are bloomin right now. When I am queesy the smell kills me but when I am feeling OK it is heavenly! Tony and I were out the other night and I told him I thought I was smellin a Gardenia bush. He showed me the Orange Blossoms and had me take a wiff. It is amazing the strength of those little blossoms. At least there is something around here that seems a little like spring!
I have to say I am missing the weeks right after the snow melts off and first the Crocus bloom and then the Tulips. I miss having fabulous flowers in my garden! We are trying to garden here too though. Tony took the girls to Lowe's and let them pick out a bunch of flowers and seeds to plant in the garden! They have been fun to watch. They go out every day to water the garden and check it's progress. I think they are mostly excited about the strawberry bushes.I can't wait until the cantaloupe come up. They are going to be thrilled to see that.
We planted tomatoes, broccoli, squash, cucumbers, cantaloupe, watermelons, strawberries, and carrots.
The tomatoes and broccoli and growing like crazy already.
Our ward has a plot of land that they want every family planting some things on. We are going to do our corn there since we are pretty limited on space here.
It's really nice when I have been feeling crappy Tony gets home and all the kids head outside to tend to the garden. I come out and sit in the patio chairs and watch. The sun feels good with a little breeze blowing and it is delightful to watch the excitement of them as they gauge how much their garden has grown the past few days! It is a good way to take my mind off of feeling crappy. Sometimes it's just nice to take in the good around you!
