Valentine's Day

Hello Sweet Friends,

I received your email and absolutely love the virtual roses. Valentine's Day is coming upon us quick and not sure what I will get. I would love to try and plant some sort of rose garden but hear it requires specific soil and care, etc. I am not sure they would survive in my area. If I had my own way, I would have a yard full of the wild roses. They smell so absolutely heavenly and beautiful to gaze upon but not sure if I can transplant or grow any from seed. A project to add to my *To Do* list which is getting pretty long now.

I have planted some Giant sunflowers seeds and seeing the beginnings of growth. I love watching how the birds flock around for the seeds in fall. They also grow so tall and the flowers are the size of dinner plates. They are beautiful and maybe one day you will get to see them in person. Now that would be nice.

I have hung a peanut butter-birdseed ball outside in a onion bag. The chickadee's absolutely love them and got to laugh when I saw a Blue Jay come along scattering the smaller birds. We still have snow and chilly temperatures around here but the days are slowly getting warmer. I love the beginnings of Spring and promise of something new. What are your thoughts?

The time to unpack, review and clean my spring and summer clothes and pack up my winter clothes will arrive soon. Trying to decide which clothes to toss, donate and replace can be tough, did you realize? probably more difficult for a woman since we always or near that, buy clothes that look good on us and are pretty. Separation anxiety may set upon a few of us on that idea.

Alright, I know that I can not keep bubbling on and on till next year, yet, but will leave these chuckles for you, hope you find them worthy of a chuckle or two. :)
