I Think Spring Really IS Coming.....


Elvis would like to aplologize for his mistress`s long absences but agrees with her that being winter-stuck inside really doesn`t make for anything interesting to blog about with only pics of snoozing animals.


She`s been busy reading other blogs and cooking....

Slow Cooker BBQ Meatballs

Hot Cross Buns with Fudge Icing



and working and visiting etc etc. And she asks that you don`t mind all the pictures crammed here in one post :)
This was last week in the back garden with Saint Francis...

And by golly, this is today!



Spring bulbs are coming up!

Last week was still so gloomy that a nice pot of lovely smelling Hyacinths were purchased and placed here.....

Then moved here....

They didn`t like the kitchen very well, so were again moved to here in the sun where they continue to fade away....

But the herbs that were brought in for winter are bursting with life. The chocolate mint is growing like mad!

Hope everyone has a lovely sunny weekend!

love the bulbs coming up, always magical to me. Can I just tell you how much I enjoy your pics of food you cook/bake? mmmmm!

Hi, Tea (don't know what else to call you).

I love hyacinths too but always have trouble with them tipping over. I am so glad you Ontarians are finally getting rid of some of that snow. We haven't had snow here for a while but we are supposed to get 5-7 inches of heavy wet snow tonight. Yuck!

And WE don't have any spring bulbs coming up yet here in Bismarck.

Love that Elvis. Our yard has been dry for quite a while but watch out for tomorrow. I will probably want to sell the dogs again.

Spring has sprung.

=^..^= Ooooo spring is springing out all over!

I think you have been doing the same as me, when waiting for spring to appear I nest. I cook. I bake.

Those rolls ... did I read that correctly fudge icing? ::glup::slurp:: YUMMERS! Two please (no, one is not for later ... I am a piggie!)

Be right over ... I'll bring the tea.
(We can take some out to St. Francis ::brrr::)
=^..^= love, zU

It really does look as if Spring is on the way in your neck of the woods, we're going though a bit of a wintery spell again here in England in fact it's bloody freeezing!

those are lovely pets pixx

can I ask you something

you are familiar with the American accent: every now and then it stumps me

just now a blonde-haired girl in a pink fleece swirled into this internet caff saying (in a strong standard-sounding American voice): "my penis disappeared as Adonis"...

living within 100 miles of the border... have you ANY IDEA what she might have meant?

or have I just got a bizarrely confused mind

I would love to have a herb garden by the way

I have no clue what she`s meaning! Sounds like something taken from a book and missing the rest of the sentence LOL

ah, sleeping animals - I have that problem here too :) Mine are all snoozing into Spring. Your hot-cross buns look very tasty. I love hyacinths but for some reason their lovely perfume gives me a headache :(

Deana said...
