My new pink shamrock plant (oxalis) in it's new pot put on quite a show today.
All the green and flowers today reminded me that I have not shared this fun gift that I received from one of my blogging friends Dorrie. She sent me this beautiful adult coloring book a while ago and this is one of the pages that I have finished. I think I used just about every single green pencil and marker that I have on all the different plants in this garden.
Coloring is relaxing. The hardest part is choosing the colors you're going to use!
St. Patrick's Day wouldn't be complete without a shamrock shake. Thanks to my office co-worker who had to make a bank deposit, she was able to pick up shakes for us on her way back.
It was a lovely almost spring day here today and I got my sorry self outside early this evening to do a little walking. I found this scilla peeking out in the driveway..........
and this patch of green moss which reminded me of a balloon on a string.
Spring is just a few days away and would you believe that they're forecasting a snowstorm for our area on Sunday. Estimates go from 1-6" and depending on when it starts whether it will actually stick or just be a "white rain". The bad part about these storms has been the coastal damage that they come with. Our New Jersey shoreline took a real beating in 2012 from Superstorm Sandy. A lot of damage was done to our barrier islands - Mother Nature wants them back. And even though there have been a lot of beach replenishment projects, each of these nor'easters changes the topography again and again. Millions of dollars have been spent and will continue to be spent to save the beaches and the homes that line them. We are lucky that our place is on the mainland and well above ground level.
