It bloomin' hurts ~

Hello my friends ~  My flower garding is just popping ~

We have had some wonderful temperatures here in Ontario, although it has cooled off quite a bit today.  But I must remember it is March ~

I am so excited that spring is here ~

I would love to get cleaning the garden, but alas, I can't.  Saturday, as I was looking through our freezer in the kitchen, a heavy glass mug fell out of the freezer and landed on my toe ~ ouch ~ it bloomin' hurts.

It is also a nice shade of purple, like my hyacinth ;-)

I had to take the day off work today, because I can't even put a shoe on, let alone walk around ~

So, I guess I'll have a cup of coffee and catch up on everyone's blogs today.  Hopefully, I can get a shoe on tomorrow.

What are you doing today?

Let me know, I think I need some company




  1. Oh, what a shame! Just take it easy and enjoy having some extra time to yourself. Hope it heals quickly!

  2. I hope your foot will be better tomorrow and that you won't have to go shoeless another day! I'm sure you'll be inspired after reading all the blogs!!!!

  3. Hi Marianne .
    yes it is quite chilly today . My spring floweres have all opened as well isnt it all so lovely ! I have to cage my Hyacinths because the wild bunnies just love to munch on them lol ! Hope it warm up again . I cant wait to get my hands dirty in my gardens next month and plant all my perenials and my hanging planters ! Have a wonderful day !

  4. P.S. Hope your toe gets better fast OUCH ! is right !

  5. Oh no! I am so sorry.
    The flowers are in so far ahead of schedule. My neighbors wisteria is blooming and my iris are about to bloom! Picked lilacs with my tulips.
    get to feeling better quick!

  6. OUCH! That must have hurt! That happened to my friend. Twice! Once with a frozen pop bottle of water and a turkey. I hope you can get a shoe on tomorrow. If the weather was warmer you could wear a sandal. Your photos are so pretty. I can't believe how far ahead you are there. It was so hot here last week but this week it's back to normal. Take care my friend. Hugs, Pam

  7. Oweee! That must hurt! I'm sewing this afternoon...working on an order I got today. Have you received anything from me yet? Let me know when you do! And take care of yourself today!

  8. Oh Marianne, I hope your foot is feeling better soon. Your garden is coming to life and the pretty signs of spring are at your home.


  9. That must have hurt tremendously. Hope it is feeling better soon.

    Your garden looks lovely. I posted about mine today as well. I love the start of spring.

  10. I'm new to blogging, and I love to visit your blog. It takes me on a little holiday to Canada to see the happenings up in your lovely north country. I hope your purple toe turns pink again soon.
    Warmest Wishes,
    Carol x

  11. Marianne, Oh your toe isn't broken is it? I hope you are back up on your feet soon. Bonnie

  12. So sorry to hear about your injury! Those freezers can be mean! Your spring bulbs are beauties! Mimi

  13. Ouch! I hope that your toe feels better soon.

  14. No blooms here in Minnesota yet, unless you count pussywillows.

  15. Ouch!!!!!I have a friend in Ontario and she has been telling me about her crazy warm weather.
    spring in Alberta is NOT HERE by no sense of the imagination. Snowed today.
    I hope you enjoyed you "day off".

  16. Im with ya! Spring has surely sprung! :D And what is it with this wild weather? :P
    Hope youre ok soon! :P


  17. Beautiful flowers. So sorry about your foot. I had something similar a couple of weeks ago. A can of beans fell off the shelf and on my toe. I thought I broke it. I couldn't move it forever and it turned purple and swelled up, but it's okay now. Hope your foot gets better soon. Take care.

  18. Sorry to hear about your foot! I know that hurt! I have done that before! Your flowers look beautiful!

  19. Oh dear! So sorry to hear about your poor toe, and to miss work for it, well, maybe that's a good thing.:) I have a bit of a stomach virus, so I'm laying low today, I really need to run to the store for bread and coffee, but I'm not going to anytime real soon.
    Your garden looks lovely, I don't have any blooms as of yet, but, several things are poking their heads through the soil. So exciting!!! More every day.
    I hope you are enjoying your day!
    Hugs, Cindy

  20. Ouch! Makes my toes curl just to think of it! Hope it feels better now!

  21. Oh I am so sorry. I hope your toe is a bit better. Your garden looks so nice. I am glad you are having some spring weather.

  22. I am behind in my blog reading again and am just learning about your toe owie. I am so sorry. I did something similar the other day and wow did it hurt. So I am sending you some big sympathetic hugs!! Oh and your garden looks like it is already showing it's splendor.

    Lots of love,
    Susan and Bentley
