I don't know about you
but I am ready for a little
and a little

the muscari has finally bloomed
it's just barely beating the muscari planted outside as they are about to pop up anytime

have you been feeling like warmer weather has been at a snail's pace?

at Christmas we put Padron pepper seeds in everyone's stockings
we're having a contest for best peppers
Mr. PV is winning so far one loses this contest!

I love to bring out the spring things
a few years ago my art kids had a little rabbit village and we made little rabbits and veggies
(I miss my kiln)

March is a tough month for the Texas Panhandle
usually lots of cold wind but ever so often the tease of a warm sunny day

indoor gardens can really boost the spirits 

I had 3 acorns that I have had for a very long time
they signify my 3 kids
this year, for some reason

I planted them

I am amazed

the roots are growing

do you like green herbs?

even green herbs can be so pretty

one day I noticed that Mr. PV glued this face on my garlic man
it's Mark Twain...his head was broken from an old whiskey decanter
and he glued his face to cover garlic man face
sometimes I think Mr. PV is around 8

I have his outfit all ready to go
well...except for his shirt and socks...any 8 year old can pick those out

my are such a blessing to me
you make me feel so lucky
I am

Hi Gina,
This post is lovely...I'm loving all the green. I've never grown that type of pepper but I think I need to! I think Mr. PV is hilarious. ;)

Oh how we love our peppers, not familiar with yours but I want to try. When I was in college and a true potter, sold my pottery... But with living in Philly now having a kiln voids our insurance, bummer.
I always enjoy your posts! All your Green is wonderful, I'm Polish but tomorrow I will like everyone else be Irish for the day.
