Garden cleanup, daisies, and SNOW?!

Hello dear friends! This is a little late in coming, but here is the March image from "The Nature Notes of an Edwardian Lady" once more showcasing the beautiful work of Edith Holden.

Her work was so lovely,
but spring must have come much earlier
where she lived...

Last week here it got to the
high 70s and even 80 one day,
so I mulched a large section of my newest garden.
I set out the rest of the bags of mulch and the
wheel barrow by the deck so I could continue working,
but the reality of March here is that the warm weather
didn't last.
It didn't seem fair that on the first official day
of Daylight Savings Time,
we woke up to this...

It has been cold and nasty ever since,
so I made my own garden fun by purchasing this lovely
bouquet in the grocery store.
White daisies...

...with greenish centers...

...for St. Patrick's Day...

On Sunday there wasn't much else to do but cook a nice
dinner, so Miss German Descent Girl here
made an early Corned Beef and Cabbage and invited my
sister-and-brother-in-law over for dinner.
I cook it in Guinness Stout and one of the leftover bottles
sure tasted good.
And I am not even a beer-drinker, per say!!


  1. Hello Sue, yes the lovely age from Edith Holden , sure say spring, not so much the photo from your garden :-( -No snow here, but still cold outside, even the days have become longer ,and a little warmer. Your daisies looks beautiful, and we just need to find spring ourself, if the weather man will not give it free ,lol.

    1. Yes, we will find spring ourselves! Thanks for your comments sweet Dorthe. Have a great weekend! Hugs!

  2. Beautiful artwork, I am not familiar with her so thank you for sharing. I have snow as well, but not like what so many others were hit with! I love your daisies and cannot imagine temps like that, but I think that I am living in the wrong state in the winter time! Happy St. Patrick's Day!


Thank you for taking the time to comment on this post!
