TC’s Visit, Easter, and Garden Update!

Wow!

Since my last post an entire week’s gone by…and what a mad dash of a week it was! My oldest son was in town, and he crams more activity in a single day than any other person I know.  Take April 12th for example: 10am we’re on the beach; Noon we’re in a restaurant; 2pm we’re racing home to shower/change; 3pm we’re at the Hibiscus Festival; 5pm I’m dropped back home; 6pm he and Maggie drive 2.5hrs across the state to a VIP party (hotel room included!) hosted by a co-worker.  Dance til dawn, April 13!

Carpe diem is how he rolls!

Rolling toward Easter Brunch: Carpe Diem!

The entire week was a definite BLAST, but Maggie and I were exhausted by Easter! Nevertheless, we rallied for our new family tradition: celebrating with brunch at the Disney Vero Beach Resort:

Maggie’s fiancé took the above photo, so I returned the favor:

All the cool people wear shades…even when the sun don’t shine! 😉

 

While we were racing around all week, Spring snuck up on my back gardens:

It’s looking decidedly like Spring, yeah?

Before I close, a head’s up on something I stumbled across at our Beachside CVS:

Seen at CVS Beachside, Rte A1A, Vero Beach, 4/19/14

I’ve NEVER seen flower bulbs sold at CVS, have you?!?  I purchased these on Saturday, and have since hit 3 other CVSs, but couldn’t find them anywhere! (and I scrounged the stores HARD!)

For all you gardeners, “keep an eye peeled” as my Irish Granny was wont to say!  You might get lucky, too!

Until next time…..
