Where's Spring?

It has been snowy....icy.....freezing.....cloudy,,,icky here...with an occasional cloudy/rainy 50* day,
but Spring isn't far away............

Krohn Conservatory is bloomin all over in The Enchanted Spring Forest












 This is a magical place.  Bird songs, instrumental music, trickling water along with fragrant flowers and Fairie houses transport those who enter into an enchanted woodland. wonderland. This would be perfect, and easy, to recreate in a home garden setting.  It could even be done in a raised bed or container...changing
plants seasonally! You could even translate this into a tablescape for an indoor garden party even adding music and bird songs adding to the ambiance.. The inspiration is endless.

Hi Melody, I do wish Spring was here, but I know I still have to wait. It would mean I could at least take John outside the nursing home for some fresh air. It has been a long hard road and we haven't seen the end. I spent time there the last couple of days. It is just as hard on me as it is on him I think. Try to stay warm and safe Hugs from Your Missouri Friend.

OMG! Love the little fairy houses. That's one thing I'd love to get to this spring....yeh, if I get any time ;) It sure is hard to get anything done with all the appts isn't it? Even just sitting in the office and seeeing the dr , you come home exhausted..at least I do. Stress is something God could have kept ;) I'm sure he can handle it much better than us.
Hoping things calm down for you too. Not in the mood Easter decorating...my fav Holiday. My gardens are full of weeds and house looks like it went through a dust storm. But at this point I could care less. I'm turning into Debbie Downer...I can see it happening but can't stop..ah well, life goes on. Hoping to get back to myself once/if I ever get this divorce sone. Of course, after 36yrs, I don't know who I even am.
Blah blah blah.

Hoping you feel better soon and the phsy therapy is helping

We're still definitely winter here - in fact a lot of our major snowstorms are probably just ahead ~ I do love it here but always look forward to our short but lovely growing season. Thanks for sharing these darling photos - they are definitely enchanting. Hugs, Dru

Melody!! I am so happy to hear from you!! I miss you, and I know I haven't been visiting like I should:( but know I think of you all the time!! Especially when I look at my gorgeous gift from you!!!!
My goal this year is better time management. It is a process, not something I can do all at once, but I am getting better! And blogging will be a priority!!!!
I love that enchanted garden. I swear I saw a fairy peeking at me!!
