Part of the reason I've been behind in blogging is that a few more jobs have been coming in, I never know from day to day how much there will be, so it's a little hard to plan...but busy is good and I'm not complaining!
The Gerbera daisies have been hanging in there are are still looking pretty good...a nice surprise.
It's been cold and with all that white outside I needed something to warm up with on the inside...a perfect day to make home made chicken noodle soup. Yum. Simple pleasures.
My friend Kris and I ventured over to the Como Park Conservatory last week to take some more flower pictures. We both enjoyed the 80+ degrees in the greenhouse. Their spring show was on display...star gazer lilies as far as the eye could see.
We spent some time in the zoo too. A nice break in the day. I'll miss playing hooky with her when she finds a job.
The daffodils are blooming in my pot of bulbs. There are some hyacinth blooming too...fragrant!
Winter is getting long, we've been staying home more evenings just because it's nicer to be home than to be out and about in the cold. I like it.
Here's another blossom from my Watch 'em grow pot. Is it a type of scilla? I'm too lazy to look it up. Just being honest.
I know I just said that I was grateful for staying home, I'm also grateful that we got to go out as a family too. Neither of the boys are dating at the moment, so we get to enjoy their company a little more often. I think we enjoy it more than they do, but that's ok too.
And last but not least....for the last day of February and for catching up....a last shot of the Gerbera daisies. They have lasted for a couple of weeks....amazing.
