It’s That Time of Year

It has been beautiful here in the Carolinas this weekend. Last week we had temperatures in the 80’s, but this weekend was a little cooler with the strong winds blowing through.

I got a text from my husband Friday. “I’m going to be outside cutting grass if you need me”. 
Now that he has started, he will have to continue cutting the lawn every week. The weeds were gettng tall and the onion garden could feed ten thousand people. “It’s that time of year again”. 

We are finally able to get our afternoon walks in. While walking trough the neighborhood, nothing screems spring like the cherry trees blooming and daffodils laughing. Then that smell! Those stinky Bradford Pear trees.  “It’s that time of year again”. 

Thank goodness we had some rain last week. I hope it keeps the pollen levels down as we enter into Spring. The pollen puddles looked like abstract paintings with swirls of green as the fallen pollen is washed away. “It’s that time of year again”.

I’m wide awake at 7:00 in the morning. The sun is beaming through the windows, and the birds are singing a melody. “It’s that time of year again” and I love it.

I plan to go to the garden store next weekend and purchase a few plants to grow. I want to grow another egg plant and maybe some cucumbers or squash. I have a plan to do another patio garden using planters. I can’t hardly wait to get the patio cleaned and set up for the warmer months. 
I just love the warmer weather and longer days. 
And by the way, The beach just called and said, “It’s that time of year again”!

Happy Sunday.


  1. It's FREEZING here this morning. It's like, 60 degrees. I'm staying in. I mean it. Brrr.

    1. This made me smile. It was 22 degrees here in western MD. : )

  2. I love springtime with new life budding everywhere!

    Happy Sunday Lisa.

  3. I won't be mowing the grass anymore once we move into the new house. We aren't having any grass. Just woods. : )

  4. Yeah Spring does yell out, how ever you may be just stretching it aobut hearing from the BEach! ;-) I have cut grass in many states, but none is like cutting grass in Gaston county the first cut of the year. It is the one time Grass smells like onions. hahahahahaha!

  5. I am so ready to plant....veggies and maybe some gorgeous flowers.....

  6. Oh---I'm so envious that you can start planting and gardening. We haven't been back to Asheville in a while and I miss it, especially the pretty blue hydrangeas! Enjoy!

    Thanks also for your visit today. You are doing really well with not catching bugs over the winter. Must be all that fresh air! I know, allergies are terrible, I get those in the fall. Lucky me! ;-)

  7. I thought the other day, "maybe time to retire the coat?" and here comes the cold-ish chills. Come on spring, stop being flaky

  8. still in the 20's and 30's here. but i envy your warmer temps.
