Today was a nice day...

 Today was a good day...anytime I can get outside is! The weatherman kept saying this was going to be the warmest day of the week...it got to 70 today! It is supposed to be back in the 50's by Thursday...so I thought I would garden for a bit in the sun...the only problem was the wind...it has been really blowing the last few days...today was no exception...but our house blocks the wind a great deal...so we worked in the back...we had some visitors...a whole bunch of Mourning Doves..
We always have a pair in the yard...but there were about 8 up in the tree in my neighbors yard...just sitting there...coming down two at a time to feed at the bird feeder...
 I picked some tangerines too...and ate a couple...yum...nice and sweet and juicy! There aren't as many as last year...probably due to the very warm winter we had last year...but they are a lot bigger! 
 Here's a friend that keeps me company back here...there are lots of violas blooming right now...but it only seems like the purple ones came back...I collect seeds and planted a ton...but I don't separate them by color...I just put them in one bowl and see what happens....this year looks like only the purple shades grew...


 A few Gerber Daisies are blooming now too...
 And this too! I'm not really sure what type of lettuce it is...I can't remember...but it came up on it's own and is doing quite well...it's from a salad mix seeds I planted last year...they were all good...this one must have sent some seeds out...lucky me!
I am still making more of these...I had some special orders for birthdays in February...I finished all my orders ...this was one...now to add a few to my Etsy shop!
We have been pretty much home bodies this new year so far...I have finished 3 books...easy reads from Lilian Jackson Braun...there's about 24 in her series about a man who has two Siamese cats who help him solve crimes...fun...fast and no gore...more like old fashioned mysteries...I have 4 left to read and Don ordered them for me today from the library...we went to the movies...saw The Hobbit...liked it, but it is a bit different from the book...artistic leeway I guess...yesterday we went to Mimi's for an early dinner...they have the unlimited soup and salad on right now and we had a gift card...gee...we lead a pretty exciting life...don't we!! Actually...life is good...I'm very blessed!!
Until next time...enjoy your day!!!

Karen said...

Terrific shots, I love that gnome.

Holly said...

Your tangerines look so much better than my oranges. At least they are giving me some decent juice. We have so many right now that it looks like our tree is going to fall over. It's going to get chilly here too in the next few days, Have a great day!

Wow, it's so neat to see flowers and fruit in such vibrant colors at this time of year. We are seeing daffodil greens pop up but that's about it--everything else is pretty bleak. I love that little garden gnome/face.

Happy new year to you and yours!

Christine said...

Yes you're right to make the best of any sunny spells and your garden is lovely as always!
Home is the best place to be this time of year so snuggle up and enjoy your reads!

Kaye said...

Lovin' the pansies! Your tangerines look fabulous!

Traci said...

The pictures are so pretty! Our weather is awful. It's warmer than it's been & is supposed to get close to 70 but it started raining yesterday & isn't supposed to stop for days. UGH!

Sounds like a lovely day! Those tangerines are gorgeous. Today is actually really nice here, close to 50 degrees! Tomorrow may even get close to 60!

Judy S. said...

Nothing quite as tasty as freshly picked citrus; they sure beat anything in the stores! Great flower photos that brightened this grey day. We did have a rose this week though! Happy 2013!

Lottie said...

Sounds like a wonderful day! Love the pansies.
