Weather delay; Spring postponed!

Potager 3-21-18  Happy First Day of Spring!  (Insert groan here!)  It’s snowing, and it’s beautiful, but it’s not the way I wanted to celebrate the official start  of the growing season.  Potatoes were supposed to be planted on St Patrick’s Day, but that didn’t happen.  Still waiting for the first daffodil so the peas can go in the ground.  Think that will be delayed as well.  Our traditional “Welcome Spring” breakfast was an indoor event rather than on the upper deck.Deck table 3-21--18  It is a pretty view out the front door, but all the color from the crocuses and tiny iris bulbs is blanketed in white.  Front view 3-21-18  So, with Spring delayed and gardening postponed yet again, I’m spending my time making items for my booth at the upcoming Kentuckiana Herb Symposium this Saturday.  Just finished six “herbal” umbrellas.  Umb  It’s a fun task that I can do while I watch basketball.  Chives on umb  There are four of my favorite herbs on each umbrella. (Chives, lavender, rosemary, pineapple sage) I can’t count the number of umbrellas I’ve painted for my shop and shows over the years, but it’s a bunch.  Lav on umb  If there are any left after the show, I’ll put them for sale on my website.  It’s still snowing….what can I paint next?

    Spring is very slow to come to central Maine, too. Three feet of snow in parts of our yard. Lovely umbrellas.
