Spring is in the Air

This week brought us hope.

We finally saw temps climb out of the 20s this week and even had a few mild days in the 50-60 degree range!! It's really amazing what some sunshine and warmer weather can do for your mental state. I couldn't stay in the house. I found anything I could do to be outside. I took an extra walk, I took down the rest of the Christmas lights I hadn't been able to get to due to ice and snow, I shot some basketball hoops with my daughter and sat on the porch drinking an iced mocha latte. 

And after all that, I got the itch to do a little planting. 

Spring is in Air

I had the opportunity to attend the Philadelphia Flower Show for the first time with a group of friends last week. It's something I've wanted to do for a long time and it sure didn't disappoint. All the beautiful flowers and greenery sure kicked my spring fever into high gear! It was wonderful to see the spectacular art exhibits made with flowers. Seeing all the bright colors, smelling the fragrance of the flowers and even touching the green grass; it was exactly what I needed!  

I found this adorable little pot from one of the many vendors and thought it would be the perfect addition to my kitchen windowsill. Then I bought these tiny potted greens to fill it with. I decided Tuesday was the perfect day to transplant them. It gave me just another excuse to be outside.

I gathered all the supplies I would need and got started.

It felt good to be out in the fresh air, working in the soil and planting, even if it was only for a short time. It made me even more excited for spring.

I put some potting soil into the bottom of my little urn ...

... and gently took my plants from their pots, transplanting them into the urn.

After adding a bit more soil, my little project was complete.

I love it! The plants are so cute and the pot is just the right size to sit on the windowsill in my kitchen.  It's the perfect spot for me to see the plants everyday and enjoy their beautiful greenery.

I think we may finally be on the downhill side of winter. I, for one, am certainly looking forward to spring and putting this miserable winter behind me.

Enjoy your weekend!
