When the weatherman says it's going to be 70 and sunny mid-way through April, it's time for an impromptu girls day.
We're headed to the garden center. My daughter calls it the flower shop. We called her godmother on the spur of the moment and are taking advantage of the beautiful weather to do a little exploring.
I'm looking for hardy Spring-flowering shrubs that like acid soil. We have an area that just needs a little something extra to hide a nasty fence, and why not add color at the same time?
I'm hoping to find Forsythia, Azalea, Rhododendron, or Flowering Quince. We'll look at the size and color to see what would be best, and by the end of the day, we may have some new plants to put in!
Then "the girls" will head out for an outdoor lunch.
Days like this make me appreciate this week's disappointment. There's nothing like getting a little perspective from a friend to help you appreciate the positive side of things. This time, it came from JCK at Motherscribe, specifically As to Why I Didn't Get the Job. A great read.
So, today, I'll sit back and enjoy this life. The warm sun will feel so good. I hope you enjoy it, too.
Sometimes what seems like a roadblock might just be a bend in the path.
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
