I got a fever....

Butterly Iris

and the cure's got nothing to do with "more cowbell".

 I think I'm catching a bad case of Spring Fever.  Yes, everything is still brown and dead, but finally.....after such a cold, dreary winter (and y'all know how much I hate being cold), we've had a few nice days with temperatures flirting near 70 degrees.


This weekend is supposed to be sunny and in the low 70's, so you know I'm itching to start digging in the garden again.  Patience has never been a virtue I've mastered.  I can't wait to pull up dead stuff and breathe some life into what currently looks like a barren wasteland.

I snapped these pictures in my backyard last spring.  Believe me, it looks NOTHING like this right now, but a girl can dream, can't she?  


So, just in case you too are suffering from Spring Fever, I thought I'd share a little bit of my medicine.

Now, if we can just get through February....


  1. I've got the fever too. It suppose to be 73 Friday. If only it could last.

  2. Beautiful photos! We are having warm weather here, too, but I have been working 10+ hour days and have barely seen the light of day. I hope our warm weather sticks around for the weekend!

    Hang in there, you'll be digging before you know it!

  3. We're suppose to be in the 50's today which will be a BIG treat but then we'll be back in the 20/30's for the weekend. Counting the days until I'm in your neck of the woods where spring will be in bloom.

  4. Those pictures are awesome, we don't get that many varied flowers in Arizona. Tempe Towing sees a lot of the desert plants but few like these.
