This has been an exciting week, but unfortunately I’ve been behind the ball for a lot of it. On Sunday, Maine turned 195. Yesterday was St. Patrick’s Day and, luckily, I accidentally wore a green sweater. But- the big celebration that I’m not going to miss? This Friday is the first day of SPRING! No matter that it’s been snowing this week and the temperature was in the teens at my house this morning. Overall, the snow has been melting and the sun has been shining and I’ve placed a big order of seeds. (Too many seeds, maybe!) Also, I’m noticing a lot of birds. Good signs!
As soon as there is grass/deck exposed I’ll be moving out! Outside that is. In anticipation of that day, here’s a round-up of some fun games, tools, accessories and food/drink (because of course I can’t help myself!) that will make warm weather outdoor living brilliant and beautiful and all of the things I’ve dreamed of this winter.
In the beginning, anyway, there will be the chill of spring that can’t keep us inside but requires a little planning. Fire pits, stylish axes for firewood and blankets should do the trick. I can envision The Night (it’s gonna be a big event, so it deserves capital letters)- sitting cozy around a fire while a cool breeze plays the porcelain wind chimes and washing down a s’more with a spring cocktail. Not bad. Not bad at all.
Bring on spring! Blair
