Faucet, Fencing, Spigott and Hose

It sounds like a strange law firm but it was our shopping list at Lowe's yesterday. I coulda/shoulda stayed home and got something done, but it was such a lovely day that I decided to chuck it and go shopping with Dave. Mostly so I could pick out the new faucet for our upstairs bathroom. I am slowly removing all Victorian hardware from the previous owner and replacing it with stuff I like better. Especially one handle faucets. There are times when a nudge with the elbow is just what's needed to get the right water temperature. This one leans forward a bit making it easier to get my face under it to rinse after brushing my teeth. So important after my recent dental work. My nightly flossing ritual is now accompanied with a special mouthwash....why am I telling you all this? Anyway, the previous faucet just was driving me crazy, so I am having this new one installed.
We also got another 300 feet of dog fence, a new hose and water spigott for our garden. It must be Spring.
My garden is sprouting up faster than most years and I am hoping against hope that we won't have a hard freeze in April. Tulips should be blooming this week, if the previews in town are any indication. Bradford Pear trees,  
and Cherry blossoms are everywhere, with forsythia and weigela in full bloom.
  
Ah, Spring!

  2. Beautiful pictures! Spring is in full swing in North Texas. But you are right, winter isn't over until it is over and trees are stupid.

    So glad you have flower photos to share, and I hope that winter is gone. Bradford pear blooms survive even in light snow- just in case. Now we're all eager for the spring fishpiks.

  5. I love the modern look of the faucet.
    And, I can't believe you have things blooming. We're still buried under snow--lots of it.

  6. Your flower pictures are a little memory trip for me of my springtimes in MD. Here in CA, we're seeing flowers on our trees also and azaleas are already blooming.

  7. The . Bradford Pear out my computer window has been in flower for 8 days!! So often the Bradford Pears, flower and are are gone in 3-4 days. Hoping since it has held this long that the rest of the spring flowerings will be slow and easy and long to enjoy.

  8. I am worried about the same thing. We have daffodils up and tulips starting. I feel like I should do the spring cleanup but it is early.
    Do you trust it is the big question.

  9. We have cherries in bloom (I call them cherry plums) in Seattle and forsythia and the crocuses are pretty much done. Daffies are blooming madly, and the pears are only just starting to wake up! I've seen some azaleas in flower on southern walls, and a pink rhododendron has been flowering for a month but others are still slumbering.
