Happy Easter!!

Happy Easter everyone! I hope the Easter Bunny will leave you a basket of goodies in the morning! ;)

Today I didn't do much.. took the day easy and watch the Pens game while I dyed Easter Eggs... I think I spent more time dying the eggs than watching the game... which I didn't miss much, since we lost :(

Anyways, I bought the dye kit last year on clearance from CVS and let me tell you, the cups for the dye was so much easier to use than using a coffee cup! I tried to match up the colors to the cup.. but as you can see I only got 2 out of 5 right ;)

I let the eggs site for 5 minutes in the dye... I think they turned out pretty nice.. I wish the pink would of been a little darker.. but they are pretty.. I was thinking about hidding a few around the apartment and having Matt find them... but with my luck, one would be forgotten and found a few months later :oP

Spring is one of my favorite season's of the year.. The other is Fall... I'm loving the weather right now, rain and all!

I can't wait to start my container garden again this year.. I think in about a week or so I'll pick out my plants... but no peppers this year :( The past 2 years I have a swarm of aphids that killed all of my pepper plants... everything else was fine, they just went after the peppers... damn aphids! grrr!

Enough about those pesky bugs... Here is a shoot of the first flowers on my Strawberry plant... Let's hope I get more than1 berry this year!! I think I might attempt to transfer this plant to a strawberry pot... I'm a little scared because I do not want to kill it..

Last but not least... Does anyone know what type of tree this is? I love when it is in bloom during this time of year.

Well it's getting late and I'm getting tired... G'night all!
