Valentine gift from my daughter!


Well, for Ohio, it's wonderfully warm! It's a bit gloomy and rainy - but I will definitely take that over cold and snow.

I'm a little concerned that my crocuses and hyacinths are going to be fooled into appearing. It really isn't time yet! They'll be sorry next week, if they do come up. Just once, it would be nice if I could see the crocus alive, instead of already spent before I get out there!

So, nothing much is happening in the garden yet.

But, I got something very special yesterday from my daughter. It's for Valentine's Day, she bought it all on her own - and really surprised me with it. She purchased a pretty bouquet in a pretty glass vase - walked to the florist, walked home with it - all without anyone knowing. Sweet.

It really lifts my spirits. The beautiful colors and greenery...and the loving thoughtfulness behind it.

Aren't they pretty? It just made me feel so upbeat. Thank you, Kaitlyn!

Have a wonderful day, and visit some more Bloomin' Tuesday pics at http://msgreenthumbjean.blogspot.com/

How cute that she did that for you! What a sweetie.

Yep...that was Tommy C. in the picture w/Jenna. He was her very first "date." He's such a nice young man. Of course, I wouldn't expect anything else from anyone from the C. family. :-)

Blessings, Kim<><

Nothing like a bouquet of flowers to lift your spirits, especially when it's from a loved one. It's a great arrangement.
