It feels great to be back home...sort of

Even though I was in San Antonio for a conference (which was great), we found time to get out and about to enjoy the city too. I loved the restaurants. I enjoyed delicious meals and awesome Mojitos. Friday was the nicest day of the week. We only had time to hit the touristy type places close to the convention center but still it was a blast to walk around the city.

There aren't too many cities I am in a hurry to head back to but San Antonio leads the list. Next time I would like to bring my hubby along and get a chance to see some of the surrounding area. The first three pictures were taken in San Antonio on Friday. The last one was taken this morning. It shows the weather that was waiting for me at home. We love Wisconsin but I sure would like to garden outside of zone 4 someday.

Sigh, I think I need to go take a look at some gardening catalogs until I get over this urge to immediately fly back to Texas. Last week I placed the last of my 2010 seed orders (no really, this time I mean it!). I'm looking forward to their arrival and having some time to plan out the seed starting and planting dates.
Happy Gardening!

I can't help it, I like the last photo best. Have to admit though that gardening in a warmer climate would be wonderful.

A friend recently mentioned that I needed to try a Mojito.

Glad you enjoyed your trip to warmer climes. That last photo does look a bit on the cool side. :-)

I'm glad you had a fun time in San Antonio, but it's always hard to come back home to winter weather.

We are on the up-swing with these warmer temperatures, so happy gardening thoughts.

I spent a week in San Antonio for work related classes. That city was so fun, enjoyed the River Walk nightly.

My favorite city to visit so far! River walk and the area restaurants were great. I would love to have a chance to bicycle in that part of TX too. I really want to head back there.

It's the first day of spring. Where are you?


Thanks for visiting!
