Here we are, in April! I’m glad to see it, it means we’ve decidedly entered spring. Things are getting awfully springtimeish around here. My tulips are opening up and the living Easter basket (well, bowl) we planted is starting to blossom.
We’ve also been letting the rabbits out of their hutch to frolic and lounge. The photo above is our daddy-rabbit, Mr. Darcy. He looks a bit like a chocolate bunny, doesn’t he? He’s our sweetest one. Its those ornery girls who are always hatching escape plans. When they broke out of their hutch last time, he remained behind, uncertain of jumping out the back door, I’m sure.
How is your spring gardening going? Isn’t it interesting to watch a garden wake up after winter? Although we really didn’t have any snow…and some of my perennials just stayed green and quiet all winter, its good to see blooms. I’ve been feeding my roses some rose food in hopes of creating some monster blossoms when they finally open. They’re budding now, can’t wait to see the first one.
This time of year I always have epic plans about gardening. I’ve decided that our back patio will be an ode to Arizona, which we have visited a few times for my husband’s work. Last time we drove, with Audrey in tow, and it was a big adventure. We really had a lot of fun. I always came back painting in really bold and desert inspired colors. I bought a few fancy potted aloe this weekend (blush and alligator, whodathought!) and put out my puny little cactus I bought in Scottsdale. I hope to add more desert plants, and I know that they at least wont fail me if it gets to 114 again this summer.
But anyhow….errands today and hopefully a little bit of painting! I’m glad you all are liking the newest folk art pieces! I can’t wait to make more!~
