Second, spring has sprung here in Georgia and we are supposed to have gorgeous weather all weekend - in the 70's. Too bad I'll be inside working on work stuff most of it. But I know I won't be able to resist getting outdoors a little anyway. These are my Carolina jessamine and pansies blooming in front of my front porch in my herb garden. My thyme stayed green all winter even with the out of character snowfall we had. And some of the other herbs are starting to poke through and grow. The Carolina jessamine is even more beautiful this week with nearly all the blooms open - the picture was from a week ago or so.
Oh, and the ornamental cabbage forest is growing ever taller and now blooming. Not as many pink thingys on the trunks but still very interesting. I think I'll let it keep going for awhile longer.
Now for a very funny story. My nearly 21 year old granddaughter and I were riding down to a nearby town to see family a few weeks ago. She turned to me and said, "Grammy, what is Grampy's middle name?" I said, "Russell", which set her to laughing her head off and then I joined in. All these years with his pet sitting business and I never realized that his name is Jack Russell! Haaaaaaaaaaaaa!!! Of course when we mentioned it to him he didn't think it was quite as funny as we did LOL
And last - I keep The Republic of Tea in business. They have flavored and non-flavored teas and there are so many good ones! I'm trying a new one tonight - Pineapple Ginger green tea. Oh my gosh, it tastes like you're eating pineapple - yum! Another favorite is Strawberry Chocolate rooibos - it's like drinking dessert. But it only comes out from January through March or so and then not until the next year. So I ordered in bulk this year LOLOLOL I never used to drink tea very much because of the caffeine, but now I have it for breakfast, lunch, and usually in the evenings. I never liked green tea either but now prefer it to black tea. Green is better for you anyway and the rooibus (red tea) is an herb so no caffeine. And nope, they aren't paying me to advertise LOL
