Feels Like Spring

I had another post prepared for today but the temps are too gorgeous for it so I'm just going to share some recent pics around our house.

It has been unseasonably warm for February in Oklahoma and we have been LOVING it. We've been spending a lot of time outside and doing some gardening.

And gardening means we've also been hitting up the local nurseries for our plants. I know, you're probably thinking, just because it's been warmer these last few days, doesn't mean it's going to last and a freeze is going to come wipe our your garden. I know, I know.

But, according to my grandpa - who happens to be the best gardener I know - your supposed to plant onion sets on February 14th. So, right now we just have onions, strawberries and our greens planted.

We typically get at least one more snow in March so if the temps take a dive, we'll just cover the beds and hope for the best.

Anyway, Sweet P has become quite the helper! She helped me pick out our strawberry plants and entertained me at a nursery.


She helped her daddy pick out tomato plants (we have those inside by a window right now).


I just love this one:


And when it comes to planting, she is no stranger to gardening or dirt.


She is usually right in the middle of what we're doing.


UNLESS, she's playing with her chalk!


Hope you're having beautiful weather where you live!

If you're local and looking for a local place to buy your plants or seeds, we usually go to Stringer's or Carmichael's (in Bixby). I like supporting local shops as much as possible, plus, they usually carry the best varieties for Oklahoma planting.


  1. I haven't commented in a while, but Sweet P's pigtails are killing me -- SO ADORABLE. My little one and I just spent the morning "spring cleaning" (in February)... it's so nice to have sunshine in winter!

  2. It is beautiful here in Ohio, too. Crazy weather. We don't do veggies (live by woods - deer, raccoons, bunnies = pain in the neck), but we do plant flowers... resistant ones. Lately, I've been saving my "fall" cleanup for those unseasonably warm winter days when getting your hands in the garden is just exactly what you need. We've had enough warm weather now, though, that all my plants are tidied up! So, now all I can do is drool over catalogs until we can plant here... late April at the earliest for most plants.

    SweetP is such a love. I can't wait to see her with the baby. She's going to be such a great big sister!


I know it can be a little scary but go on, I'd love to hear from you!
