"It's spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you've got it, you want - oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!"
As a kid I had a bedroom window that faced a large maple tree. Each spring I would marvel at the thousands of leaves that would almost magically appear. That new green, as I like to refer to the color, always brought a smile to my face. I just loved watching the leaves grow on that tree.
This past weekend my spring fever was in full bloom and I set out to the local nursery and splurged on a porch full of flowers and vegetable plants. Now mind you, I do not have a green thumb, but I do have a green heart. On my porch of glory there are some flowers mixed in with some tomato plants, a habanero, and some seeds of cilantro, lettuce and spinach. I can't promise these plants a full happy life, so I am enjoying their potted goodness while all the plants are green. Wish me luck in being able to remember to water and feed these plants!
Wish you a happy spring and I hope that you are struck by spring fever as well.
