Happy Easter 2017

We had a pretty nice day today. It was good for me to have a relaxing day after working hard at home the last week or so, on top of a stressful two weeks at work.

I got two more everbearing strawberries to add to the three I got last summer. They really took a beating this winter, but I'm hoping they rebound.

I also got a Veronica "Georgia Blue" ground cover that I couldn't resist because of the color. I planted it in the corner near one of the rosebushes - we'll see how that works.

I'm so thrilled my Firespray tulips came up successfully - they did not disappoint. I also am really enjoying the Violets that were already here around the house. The colors are all beautiful!

Spring 2017

We had a chilly but mostly sunny day today, the last day of winter. I'm happy to report that it looks like the majority of what I planted last year survived our rough winter. I'm extra excited because the tulips I planted are all coming up - this will be a first for me.

Yesterday when I was waiting to catch the bus into town around noon, three Trumpeter Swans flew right overhead. So cool. Here is a picture of the day lilies from the last week, and today's Mutts comic strip, enjoy!

February Storm

There are still large patches of snow around my house as of today, but thankfully all of the ice that resulted from the freezing rain is gone. It started last Friday and was a brutal week. Snow, freezing rain, bitter cold and wind and it came in three rounds. Lots of tree damage in the county including where I live. In the midst of the snow last Sunday where these huge Robins.
