Think Spring


It is time to start thinking about planting here in the South. Next week I will prepare my flower beds for new flowers and prune out the weeds.
Last night we were visited by a raccoon. I heard a noise and went to the window and there he was all bright eyed and bushy tailed. He was feeding on some sunflower seeds left by the birds. I have seen quite a few different critters over the years. They come out at night when it is dark. I have seen a fox, possuum and turkeys.
There is a dam near our house and a wildlife reserve with a trail. My DH and I enjoy morning strolls there when the weather is nice. Springtime is the best when all the honeysuckle is blooming and the birds are tweeting.
I am so ready for Spring. This Winter has been unusually cold with snow. We seldom get snow here and this year it arrived. I like snow but would rather see it in Dec.
I am busy making Spring and Easter dolls now and selling on Ebay and Etsy.
I will post a few of my latest here for you to see. Some are sold but a few are still available.
