The first real day of spring...

We wait and wait and long for spring and then, suddenly, it is here. The first real day of spring... 2-digit temperatures, blue skies, sunshine, chirping birds and you cannot resist going outside, coffee mug in hand, when you have 5 minutes. Inside, you feel happy and you know your co-workers feel the same way. It so happened today that our skilled editorial office flower arranger, Dorte, and I had to go shopping for spring flowers for an article about flowers. The first real day of spring at our location. It felt so good going to all the local florists, browsing. Everywhere we went, we met expectant and happy people shopping for flowers and plants for their flower bowls and gardens. We must admit that the desire to fill the car and get started ourselves was very strong. If the weather holds, we will have ourselves a weekend project or two. It gives me great pleasure to sweep the steps and plant flowers in a bowl or two... And removing that last string of lights is probably about time, too! Happy Spring everybody…/Vivian

  4. Spring actually begins on March 20th, but it must also be a state of mind. It was near 80 in southeastern NC today. We went to the beach where it was foggy and 10-15 degrees F. cooler. It was a lovely drive.
