April has arrived, and the first day of spring was 17 days ago. We’ve definitely had some melt, but we’re still a long way from gardening season here in New Hampshire.
The snow left on the ground can be counted in inches in most places rather than feet, and that is a really good thing. Even though the trees are still surrounded by snow, they are budding.
I’ve kept myself busy painting the entry way, sewing a few pouches for the upcoming trip, and enjoying the geranium and iris blooms and the new growth on my rabbit foot fern indoors.
It’s a tough time of year when you want to be outside working, but there’s no way. So, I’ll be starting a new quilting project this week with flowers in an effort to keep myself going until I can get my hands dirty.
I can’t wait for muddy shoes, dirty garden gloves, wet knees, and sore muscles. Ah, gardening season. 🙂 Here’s hoping your weather is a bit more mild and you have dirty nails to prove it.
