First Day of Spring




Spent most of the day spring cleaning. Still have a month to go before I can clean out the flower beds. I've been enjoying flowers all winter long inside. This Christmas Cactus has been blooming like this since November.Maybe I should call it a winter cactus.



The Hibiscus I was keeping warm decided to get bugs. White fly and scale, I hosed it down in the shower, sprayed it with insecticidal soap, and trimmed off all the bad stuff. It's an ugly thing now, but I'm sure it will get better.





I went outside after seeing these Crocus from the window.



The Surprise Lilies are in for a surprise when it snows again. The yard looks horrible right now, I can't wait for April.
