March

is my least favorite month of the year in Iowa. It is supposed to be Spring! However, snow is coming down with a fury right now and the wind is fierce...so....we wait. I do see flowers of some sort trying to break through and see the sunshine. There is something planted by the house, I am not sure what it is. Also peonies and rhubarb between our house and the neighbors. I am planning on starting a privet hedge to give us some privacy. Also want to plant some burning bush and other shrubs. And flowers...lots of them. Mostly zinnias and marigolds which are my favorites. Which reminds me of Song of Solomon 2:12 (Jesse and I had this printed on our wedding invitation)

The flowers appear on the earth; The time of the singing of birds is come, And the voice of the turtle-dove is heard in our land;
