For various reasons we had not been able to get down to the flower market at the train station in Mons for the last several Sundays. So we decided earlier this week that would be our destination after church today. Divine Providence apparently approved because we had an absolutely gorgeous day. It got up to 15 (59 Fahrenheit) degrees today, the warmest it's been since last fall.
We sorta went crazy buying flowers. We filled the two bedroom window boxes (the pansies in the one on the ledge outside the bathroom window weathered the winter well and are blooming like crazy). We filled the wheelbarrow. We filled the tub on the deck and still have some left to put in the other tub when the tulips Sarah's friends gave us are done.
