Wish Upon a Star

I wish it was Spring! We had more snow yesterday and last night and I am so ready for Spring.
My geranium that I overwintered has started to bloom...so I do have a bit of Spring in the house!
Yesterday Tim and I had to run some errands and when we came home we pulled into our driveway and we noticed we had a little visitor..No it sure wasn't A SPRING Chicken but a rooster! Not sure where he came from but it was funny seeing him strutting around.
Tim and I have been busy making lots of new goodies for our customers. As soon as the weather is warmer we are looking forward to opening up the porch of The Shop to display all the new items. We are working on birdhouses and lighted houses and churches. I also have lots of signs that I painted.
May you all find a little Spring time surprise today. Hang in there..only 31 more days till Spring.

"All through the long winter, I dream of my garden.
On the first day of Spring, I dig my fingers deep into the soft earth.
I can feel its energy, and my spirits soar."
~~Helen Hayes~~~

What a pretty geranium! I love the splotchy blooms. At least you have a cheery bloom to break from the winter white.

Can't wait to "dip my fingers into the earth" too! Your geranium is lovely and they are my very favorite summer flower. So are you keeping the rooster??? Have a good day, Dawn

I think that chicken is beautiful...you should have taken him in as a pet! ;)

Thanks Patti for the "touch ofg Spring". I definitely needed it. Been dealing with a small case of the "Winter Blues" so, your post brighted my day.
