Lovely Spring...


Am I Wrong...

We are working on the walls in our living room. There are two layers of wallpaper topped by the most horrendous layer of plaster I have ever seen.  I have no issue with textured walls, but our walls are lumpy, bumpy and well - just awful.

This is what it looks like after removing the plaster layer and revealing different stages of the wall paper.   Would it be wrong to just leave it like this?  I won't, but still...I like it !  What do you think?

April 1 ... not at all funny

If only it was an April Fool's Joke.  This has to be the last of the snow for this season. After all, it is spring isn't it?

But, I have to be honest - it is beautiful.  I am really looking forward to the warm/hot air and the garden this year,  but when it is time for the snow to return I will be ready and welcome it back.

Last weekend I was going to cut the stems on my butterfly bush but there had been rumors of snow, so I held off.  Maybe this weekend.
