The last few days, I haven't wanted to do anything except go outside and work in my gardens. Alas, we are also approaching midterms, which means I have many, many papers to grade. My mom suggested I work outside on good days and save the paper grading for evenings. A good idea, but, some days, the need to grade papers outweighs the desire to garden.
However, the positive signs of spring around here are the blooming jonquils and paperwhites; my tulips (planted in the fall) are surging up through the ground; the irises are showing signs of blooming. In fact, most of my plants are showing signs of life.
I have many packets of flower, herb, and vegetable seeds ready to plant. Now, if I only had the time to plant them. Sigh!
Maybe over Mardi Gras break? I hope so.
