I am joining Carole and friends today to share with you three things today!
It feels so good to almost be back to my normal routine (Steve still has a couple of days of vacation left this week) but it was especially wonderful to sleep in my own bed last night! I really love the little “cottage” we stay at in Interlochen, but that bed… and there is just something about sleeping in your own space, amirite? I get more restful sleep for sure! But as we are still technically “on vacation” – my things today are all about what’s happening around here as we wind down our vacation with a few days of stay-cation!
Asparagus is IN at my local Farm Market! These are my favorite words ever! And, we plan to head there to load up! When the asparagus is in, it is almost all we eat, and my mouth is just watering thinking about it!
This weekend is Mother’s Day and Steve is going to the Three Rivers Quilt Show with me… okay, maybe he is going to the casino while I go to the Quilt Show, lol. I am super excited to see it because one of the knitters from Tuesday night has a quilt entered!
Spring continues in my world – I came home to find my iris blooming and this year the display is fantastic! My rose bushes are covered in buds and I am excited to see that some of the poppy seeds I planted much earlier this spring are also growing! But the craziest thing of all is the volume of “helicopters” that cover my lawn (front and back!) from our maple tree. I am not sure what that means regarding weather – but they are a carpet on my lawn and my tree is still loaded with them!
There you have the things that are filling my brain but what’s on your list today?
P.S. I know I have a back log of comments and blogs to catch up on! I hope to get caught up over the weekend! XO
Welcome home! Your iris are beautiful, and it’s a big year for maple seeds here, too. I’m not sure what that means, except that I’ll be weeding loads of little maple trees out of the flowerbeds!
You’re absolutely right about sleeping in your own bed — no matter how comfortable your accommodations when you’re away, there is nothing quite like being home!
My garden exploded a bit as well while I was gone for the weekend. My lilac bushes are blooming and the roses are starting to open. I’m so glad we’re finally officially in spring!
Welcome back! Glad you had such a nice vacation (and that it’s continuing a bit). Enjoy the quilt show.
We arrived home late Sunday night and Monday discovered our Iris blooming (and the Wisteria mostly gone thanks to rain and wind while we were away!).
Welcome home! It’s been so chilly here, the leaves have barely begun to pop and they’re so slow… it’s hard to imagine finding an iris blooming in my yard!! We’ve had a lot of rain, though, so when the sun does finally come out & we have more than 1 day of warmth, things will really start to pop!
Welcome back! Your spring is definitely quite a bit ahead of ours, I’m still anticipating the things you already have blooming!
Welcome home! I too am always excited to asparagus season.
Iris, asparagus, and a quilt show. What could be better for May? Welcome home.
