Spring has sprung...

February should not look like this.
Our Meyer Lemon tree is loving all the sunshine.

 In the spring I have counted one hundred and thirty-six different kinds of weather inside of four and twenty hours.  ~Mark Twain

I wonder if he was in Texas when he said that?
The Lady Banks roses are already blooming.

   And the antique roses couldn't be happier.
It's too warm for February,
but I do appreciate the beauty of an early spring.

I'm off on another cape wearing adventure tomorrow.
No complaining...
there are too many fun stops along the way.
And I get to love on my baby boy.
My humanitarian effort to bring food to the eternally hungry.
That's a fancy way of saying I'm making a Costco run and driving it up to party town school for my son.

After my mission is accomplished, me and my flip flops will fly into somewhere fun.
Stopping to smell the roses- 
on the road or in my own yard.
I'm stopping.  I'm smelling.  I'm smiling.

I hope you're doing the same.


  1. The flowers are just beautiful, I'm especially lovin' the lemon tree! Even though it's been mild here, it sure doesn't look like that in Philly-enjoy:@)

  2. What an up lifting post. The yellow roses are just gorgeous. I have never seen so many roses bloomed out so early as in your yard. My dad had tomatoes in November, how weird.

  3. My lemon and roses are blooming too! I love the early spring but it makes me a little afraid we will have another roasting hot summer..shudder!

  4. wow, you've got some great blooms already! my ornamental pear is just starting to push out a few leaves and buds...

  5. Oh my. Your flowers are just gorgeous. How wonderful that they have popped out so early. :)

  6. Tina,
    your flowers are gorgeous, this weather is unbelievable here too! Have a fun visit with your son, hope you get to do a little shopping while you're out and about!

  7. Glad someone is having a strong early spring. So nice to see! Our crocus are coming up and we have snow tomorrow!

  8. Glad someone is having a true spring. Our crocus is coming up but we have snow forecast tomorrow! Thanks for stopping by. Jane

  9. i can just smell these beautiful blooms. thanks for sharing.

  10. I love yellow roses. I look forward to learning much about gardening and decorating now that I am a follower.


  11. Yeah, if my stupid tonsils would go back to normal...maybe I could enjoy this lovely weather we are having here...and how much do boys eat? Does it get worse? LORD HEP ME!!!


Thanks for taking the time to leave me your thoughts. I appreciate each and every one!
