Celebrating the 1st Day of Spring

Awesome first day of spring. It is again an absolutely beautiful day, 72 degrees with beautiful blue skies. Washed my car and watered some plants earlier. Had to do it before noon, in our area we have water rationing year round. Before noon or after 7p.m., 3 days a week, the days depending on whether your address is even or odd, and you can be cited for water running down the gutters.

Last week I planted tomatoes, peppers and strawberries, also a lilac bush at the corner of the front planter. This week the seed for bush cucumbers went in. Looking forward to a nice little garden. Mowed the back yard today, I love the smell of a fresh mowed lawn. Will actually need to water it tonight.

Cleaned our fountain out front. Here's a video of it, it's so cool.

Beautiful Day Yesterday

It isn't as pretty this morning, it's cloudy, but yesterday was just the most beautiful day here. Enough to get a case of Spring Fever, even washed windows and screens.

It's been a long time, but I have the urge to have a garden, our space is limited, so it'll be a container garden. I planted some tomato plants and pepper plants, but need to find seed for bush zucchini and cukes. I guess I'll go to the Burpee and Park Seed sites today, that's always interesting.

We need to get some vinyl spray paint yet, too. Last fall we found a set of four nice patio chairs (with cushions) at a yard sale for $7.00. The desert pink frames are going to be painted tan, but will still match the cushions great.

Play With Pictures

Play With Pictures has a giveaway going on, you upload a picture that you have manipulated with their software to their Facebook Group Site. You can download the trial version for use in the giveaway. I was one of those a while back who downloaded the program and received a free license.

I had a bit of a hard time with a couple of edges, but that was mainly because of where the original was taken. It is actually a quick and easy program to use.

The photos are of me and the arrangement I made with my doll for fall, with both of us in our overalls.



The picture of Garth with his Santa hat was done with Play With Pictures also.

Edit: The photo on this post will be uploaded for the giveaway. All you have to do is play with the software and upload the finished image. The site also has tutorials for the software. The giveaway ends the end of the week, and the winner will be chosen through a random draw.
