Yippee! Spring is here! We'd better seize it while it's here, because here in West Texas, it usually only lasts about two weeks. Today I planted geraniums and a couple of little green plants in pots on the front porch. Next, I'll be planting some caladiums for little bursts of color in the shade under the trees. I also put out a couple of sweet potato vines. Beautiful bright green leaves!

All the bulbs from last year are coming up. I had planted them so late, we only had greenery last year, so I'm really excited to see what comes up. The peonies are 4-6" tall already and we have a lot of iris spikes! All this is for beauty - what I'm really excited about this year is that we're starting a vegetable garden.

We have our seed starters and a lot of different vegetables to sprout. I even found some local Texas sweet onion starters! Yum! All that is left to find is another tomato variety. We only have Roma tomato starters.
