Speaking of Spring

Speaking of Spring

Let’s talk about spring!  My friends over at The Blended Blog have posed some fun springtime questions, so I decided to join in the fun and post my responses!
1. What 3 colors remind you most of spring?  Green, yellow, and blue.
2. What is the first thing you’d add to your wardrobe in spring?  Loafers  and slip-on shoes.
3. What is the first wardrobe item you ditch in spring?  Socks.  But I’ll miss them in a few weeks!
4. Who mows the grass where you live?  My sweet husband.
5. What’s spring like where you live?  It varies on the day!  Yesterday we started at 45 degrees and ended up at 80!  Anywhere between there–or all in one day!–is normal.  Some rain but lots of blue skies too.
6. What’s your favorite thing about spring?  Watching the forests green up!  I love the color of new leaves.
7. Are you a spring cleaner?  I’m not a great cleaner, but I do my best to keep the house at a healthy level of clean.  I’m not a big fan of concentrated cleaning days like spring cleaning.  So, no.
8. Are you a baseball fan?  Nope.  EXCEPT I *do* love my local Savannah Bananas!  Their games are as much about the party as the baseball.  I go for the party!  How many more days until football starts?!?
9. Tulips or daffodils?  Daffodils.
10. Favorite outdoor spring activity?  Hiking, camping, and kayaking.  It’s time to get back out there!
11. Flowers in the ground or in pots?  Both, please.  I just planted a knockout rose the other day because my dad said that even I couldn’t kill it.  We’ll see!
12. Favorite bird?   Any smallish bird is great.  Bigger ones give me the creeps!
13. Car wash or wash vehicles at home?   Car wash or my husband washes them.
14. When do you pull out your sandals?  They stay out all year!
What does springtime look like for YOU?!?

  1. I like the color of new leaves too! So bright and new! I’m gonna go buy some flowers for the front bed. I want color!! Let me know how the knockout rose goes! I may add some depending on how you do…

    1. If you’re looking for color you might want to try a hibiscus. I love them and they’ve done well for us. Fresh blooms every day, just like God’s mercies! I’ll keep you posted on the knockout rose. We got a deep red/coral hibiscus and a lighter coral rose. Thanks for being such a faithful Out and Back reader! ❤️

      1. My dad has a hibiscus and they freeze every year. Plus they can get really big! I want something smaller for my front flower beds. Maybe some annuals…

        1. We replace our hibiscus every year. I’m okay with that. It’s nice to watch it grow! I love Society Garlic, but Gene complains about the smell sometimes! Let me know what you choose!
