Tulips, Daffodils are flowering in many yards now that we are having some occasional spring like weather.
It is such a joy to see the flowering bulbs peeking out of the snow or ground as spring approaches in a few weeks.
As a young bride, I recall planting bulbs in the late fall when it was almost too late to get them in the ground. But in the spring it was so pleasant to see crocuses peeking out of the snow, soon followed by tulips, daffodils, snowdrops and so many other colorful flowers. It was the beginning of a profusion of garden color to follow until the fall frosts.
One of the reasons I enjoy gardening so much is that it is beautiful to see, both when you are sitting nearby having tea, coffee or other drinks or enjoying it as you look outside from inside your home. Some flowers open up when the sun shines on them, and then close at night in the dark. The garden is in constant movement, always a joy to observe.
When the sun is beaming into my windows I enjoy having my Silhouette® Window Shadings covering the glass, and in the open position, so I can see the outdoors and have insulation and UV protection simultaneously. There are many other shadings which offer filtered views and protection at the same time that are in my home, such as Nantuckets™, Pirouettes®, Soleras™, Vignettes®, and Luminettes® by Hunter Douglas; and Illusions and Shangri-Las made by other companies.
They are so light friendly that bugs enjoy them too. They find their way into the shadings from the sides of the blinds, have nice, sunny warmth and stay there. Eventually they need to be removed, and that is when you want to have our CamilyWand™ Sticky Bug Removal Tool™ available to do the task. It is a simple extension pole with a sticky tip, which grabs pesky insects, allowing for easy removal. I keep my Silhouette®s as bug free as possible so I’m able to have bug free views, insulation and privacy all at the same time. My readers and clients do the same, as the shadings are wonderful and we want to keep them that way!
At Camily, we hope you enjoy the last days of February and the beginning of March!
