Spring hasSprung!

Finally, after a long hard winter and looking at this , what seemed like forever snow...

the weather warmed up. Actually we have been about 20 degrees warmer than it should be, 60's and sunny - all week!  Nothing makes it feel more like spring than warm, sunny days. And looking around my yard I found this...

A sure sign of Spring. The daffodills and crocus have started growing!
Welcome Spring!

Now it's time to start cleaning up the yard and spraying to keep the deer away -they love crocus and tulips. I have a wonderful recipe to keep them away. You have to spray it about twice a week , but it works.

4 - raw eggs        1 cup listerine mouthwash( could be generic)     
 gallon jug( I use an old milk jug rinsed out)   water

Whisk the raw eggs and pour into jug; add mouthwash; add enough water to fill jug; shake. Fill a spray bottle with mixture ( sometimes the sprayer clogs up so run water through it ) Store in garage. It smells the longer it sits, so I usually spray at night.

  1. Well, I have been jumping all over your blog and I just love everything I see. Happy that you enjoy decorating the outside as well as the in. That's me,I so enjoy being outside, relaxing with what I have decorated, while also realizing that I can't improve on God's beauty.Sure is a joy, though, to add color to the green, and smell the damp earth.
    Wish you were here to help me in planning, planting, and adding beauty around a deck that my honey just added to our patio. I seem to have trouble figuring what I need to plant in the summer heat of South Mississippi, and the deck will get all of the afternoon sun. I'm sure I'll spend more time on the covered patio.
    Thank you for a fun time, and I'll be visiting you again real soon.
    God Bless,
