I have stage 4 spring fever. I am so sick of the cool weather and the grey skies I want to subscribe to one of those unlimited tanning salon promos. Why are we being punished with these 35 degree days when the AVERAGE high is supposed to be 55?!? Maybe that is the reason Paul Douglas (a local TV station's "goof on the roof") got the boot... folks 'round here think he's jinxing things. I am so over my winter wardrobe and ready for fun skirts, no sleeves and sandals-even though my feet are in need of some serious work. I love all my blogging friends in the Lonestar State but I am green with envy over the foliage I keep seeing in all their recent posts. Finally, yesterday Old Ma Nature decided to get her rear in gear and gave us a "hit" of sunshine to give me a little vitamin D fix (Hi, my name is Brooke and I am a sun-addict) I have been hankerin' for. I took FULL advantage. I drove myself straight the the nearest greenhouse with the windows down & the heat on so Miss Kato could ride with her head out the window. My pursuit? An annual as hearty as the people who put up with this crappy un-spring-like weather. The cute green-thumbed-gardener assured me pansies are no push overs. She said to acclimate them slowly over the next few days by keeping them tucked in over night since they are used to the toasty warm green house. Eight containers of pansies and $14.71 later I am back in my front yard filling my Southern exposed window box with my own little taste of Spring. And just because I love you I took a few pictures in attempt to put a little "Spring" in your step too. And if they die... I'm gonna go back to that greenhouse and poke holes in that woman's hose if ya know what I mean.
Ahhhhh, can't wait to see you again tomorrow-I think the forecast is calling for sun!
