One of my favorite garden centers for the Spring is Sunshine Acres in Chester, VT.  I went there on Wednesday when it was raining.  It was still nice to see their green houses and what they have even in the soft rain.

I like the daffodils along the driveway into the greenhouses.

I found a beautiful red Bagonia plant in one of the greenhouses. It looked nice in the console of my car.

I put it in one of my planters when I got home.  It just cheered up the day.  I noticed that Bagonias not even as pretty as this one were $8.97 in the Market Basket and this one was only $5.00.  I love it.

It’s some kind of Mexican holiday so I looked up a copycat Taco Bell recipe for tacos.  I also have a neat recipe for Taco salad.

So yesterday I took a fun trip up to West Lebanon, NH.  I love that place to shop.  So many interesting stores and fun places to shop.  I love the seasoning that I found that will be fun to put as a garnish on soups.  Yum!

I got some strawberries at the Price Chopper and put them in a canning jar when I got home.  It’s amazing how long they will stay fresh in an air tight jar like that.

They always have pretty African Violets at the Price Chopper for $3.00 and I just can’t resist getting a new one.

Then I saw the most beautiful planter with daffodils, tulips and hyacinths in it.  I mean it’s like a little Spring garden.  I thought it would be at least $24.00 for it and I couldn’t find a price.  Then I saw $8.99 on one of them for a price.  That did it.  One went right in my shopping cart and I just love it.

On my way to West Lebanon, I went up Interstate 91 with cruise on.  So fun with the radio on my favorite station.  Then I got an ice coffee at McDonalds for on my way back and came back on the NH side on Rt 12 country roads.  Saw a Canadian Goose along the highway.  Just had a really fun day.

And then this morning Martha Stewart had French macarons and Madeleines on her cooking school program plus cream puffs.  My favorite of all favorites of her cooking schools, though I’ve seen that program a lot of times.  I never get tired of it.

The leaves are just coming out on the trees and are so pretty to see.

Spring is so pretty………

And that’s my thoughts for today.
