I Am So Excited....

I am so excited
I just can't hide it......

 my spring garden is planted

Miss Addie has a new blue hat

 the herb garden is knee deep in Oregano

the Angel Trumpet is is in full bloom
(last night I counted over one hundred)

there's a new baby dove in the dove cote

after singing to me all winter "We promise to be beautiful"
 the Begonia plants I grew from cuttings really are

flips -flops
hot pink polish on my tootsies

mangoes on sale for two for a dollar

soon it will be time to run in the warm ocean waves
float down the Guadalupe  River.


I  am excited most of all because it is warm
 I am a warm weather kind of girl!!!


I am linking to Outdoor Wednesday
Thursdays Favorite Things Blog Hop.

  2. Beautiful, Dottie. Love all your plants!!! I am a warm weather kinda gal, too. We are going below freezing again tonight here. It is really cold and rainy here and not much blooming yet. I can't wait. xo Diana

    ps. Are you aware you have double word verification on? It really keeps a lot of people from commenting and blogger does a great job on its own of getting rid of spam...just thought maybe you didn't know....

  3. Oh, Dottie, your angel trumpet is out of this world!!!! I can only imagine that heavenly smell about sundown. WOW!! I love the warm weather, too!! Enjoy, my friend! Enjoy! blessings ~ Tanna

  4. Hello Dottie,
    I visited your blog today - I saw you on sweet Rayanne's blog. Your blog is lovely. Miss Addie is so cute, and your garden looks wonderful. Me and my daughters started a blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. I would enjoy coming back to visit with you. Your blog is filled with simplicity, beauty, and it is very cheerful to me. I hope to hear from you, and have a sweet day. Oh, I loved the Raggedy Anne saying on your side bar. It reminded me of my daughter, who still has her Raggedy Ann doll that she had when she was young.
