Welcome April

April 1, 2021

Good morning.  It's been raining all through the night and all day so far.  But the rain seems to be good for the trees and plants.  I finally have a beautiful yellow blossom.  One of the daffodils bloomed yesterday.  Yeaaaaah!

And today is the beginning of April, so the showers are quite appropriate.  We have quite a few showers due this week so I'm expecting all my leafy trees to start showing tiny green leaves soon.  I don't have any April Fool's tricks today.  I'm just so happy to see this little burst of yellow color in my yard.  The temps might be going up and down for a while, but Spring is definitely here!

Deanne came by yesterday and we sat out on the porch for a while.  My new plant holders came in the mail and we figured out where to put them.  I'll be able to bring out a few of my house plants and let them enjoy the fresh air until Fall.  

Today I think I'll cook up a pot of pasta.  I've already taken the sauce out of the freezer to thaw.  When I make the sauce I always make a double batch and freeze half of it.  I would also freeze a batch of cooked pasta but it doesn't taste very good when it thaws.  It becomes mushy.

For those of you who enjoy crocheting and knitting, you can get lots of really nice free patterns at  Have a look, and I hope you find some that you like.

Before I leave to read some blogs, let me leave you with this BIG hug.  (image borrowed from the web)

So, till next time, Y'all stay safe and have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Thanks for that hug, Edna, glad to see that your lone daffodil looks so cheerful and hope today's rain doesn't flatten it. I hope that you have a wonderful and very Happy Easter weekend.

slowly spring is arriving, and that's a very beuatiful dffodil, spreading a joyful color into your garden.
One of the things you need to cook fresh is pasta. some things are just no good out of the freezer.
The "hug"image is great.
But it is true, it can bring a lot of good and well feeling.
So here is a warm hug for you , all the way over the ocean.
Have a lovely day.

Hugs back to you! I Love seeing flowers blooom. But the weeds come right along with them. Such pesty things. I am dreaming of warm but not hot days. Have a great week.
