On Saturday I was happily surprised to receive two bouquets of gorgeous tulips from hollandridgefarms.com. I wasn't expecting them. I had started to place an order on their website for peonies, and then canceled it. (once I realized that you need to order those in the fall.) I will go back and reorder. These bulbs are spectacular! I am eagerly waiting for them to open and bloom. I have been changing the water in their crystal vase each day. They sent me both yellow and red ones...my two favorite colors when I was a little girl. How thoughtful of them. (and a smart business move.)
Many people are relaxing their Covid restrictions here, but I am still being very careful. I shop for groceries at 6:00 or 7:00 a.m., and spend a lot of time bicycling, walking, and hiking. I turned down a recent invitation to a fantastic party in Las Vegas. I would love to connect with my friends, but I just don't feel like it's safe yet. Patience is a virtue. I chat with my close friends on the phone, and keep in touch with others online. I don't feel comfortable getting the vaccine at this time. I plan to wait a year.
Spring is definitely here. I have been feeding the fruit trees homemade compost, added a layer of mulch, and have been giving them plenty of water. They really respond to the care.
Lula and I have also been soaking up the sunlight and vitamin D. It really makes a difference in how you feel, I think. Is it sunny right now where you live?
