Inspirational Thursday-Texas SpringIn: Gardening, Inspiration March 13, 2013 By: Jemma@athomewithjemma
Welcome to Spring-In North Texas! Oh we have such
beautiful Springs, and that is a really good thing, because after Spring we get more than just Summer-we get HOT!
So, I am embracing Spring. I am going to hold on to Spring tightly. I am going to squeeze every single moment out of every single Spring day!
If I could I would bottle Spring and when the jalapeno Hot weather arrives, I would open my bottle and sprinkle Spring all around me!
I am not only embracing Spring weather, I planted Spring in flowerpots. In Texas we have to trick our tulip and daffodils into blooming. We really don't have a "true" Winter.
So, Way back in November-when everyone else was thinking of pumpkin pies I was putting tulip and daffodils bulbs in our extra refrigerator.
I was tricking my bulbs into thinking they were hibernating in a cold climate.
They stay in our refrigerator until mid January. When we have a warm and sunny day I take my bulbs out and away I go planting! And then...
Mother Nature works her magic!
Just before going to work yesterday morning I took this picture. You know, I will be bottling this up too-so when our days are 105 degrees and air conditioners are humming non-stop.
I will be sprinkling dewy cool mornings, and glorious blooming colors on my world.
