Spring is Finally Here!

Dave has a passion for gardening, these flowers are "the other women" in his life. He brings home more bulbs every year. He is so happy when he is planting in the soil. We have had a few days of sun, but now the rain is back...Grrrr! Next week spring will stay and summer will be on its heels.

I will finally get back to the gym and get some strength back. Dave will be painting the house for curb appeal, but the better we make this house the less I want to leave. I have added a slide show of Dave's flowers and new pictures in flickr to kick off spring. Now we can bring out the outdoor furniture, put the top on the gazebo, turn the fountain on and BBQ...Yeahhhh!

Dave is an amazing gardener! Well, my dear, if you're going back to the gym, I certainly need to, too! I looked at your beautiful pics in flickr and left some admiring comments. Gosh, I wish we lived close to each other. I'd so enjoy visiting with you, over a cup of coffee.

The ironic part of getting a house ready to sell is that it is only just before you sell it, you have the house in the condition you really wanted it in while you were living in it. Leaving the house Gee and I lived in was difficult, especially once I got the house all set for selling.

So beautiful..way to go Dave!! You are working out? Now I am feeling like a total bum as I promise everyday to get more exrecise and have yet to manage that. LOL
love TJ

Wow...the flowers are absolutely beautiful. And your yard...I want to come play and BBQ and spend afternoons enjoying the lovely Spring weather. I'm so glad the sun has begun to shine there...enjoy the beauty of the world, as we all enjoy the beauty YOU emit into this world.
I love you sweet one,

The flowers are splendid! Your yard is such an inviting one. ::hint, hint::

Hope the rain ends very soon, and you get to wallow in the delight of spring.

::bigggg hug::

Those pictures are glorious! Your Dave and I share a similar passion, though I miss some of the lovely flowers I was able to grow up north but refuse to cooperate here in Florida.

I'm so happy that you have had some nice weather. I hope it continues for you, and yes... I know how hard it is to leave a home that one has grown to love.

My gosh! I just looked at the flicker show! Amazzzing! That view of the bird bath with the mountains in the background could have been a picture of the luberon valley in Provence! Absolutely gorgeous! I don't think I could leave that place if I ever lived there!

Good man, that Dave!
