Only that it's a perfect morning here. Only that I need to keep this brief and get outside with more than a camera……perhaps a rake, shovel, hoe, pruners, fertilizer, and good strong gardening gloves.
I see the garden hose already waiting - yesterday we sprinkled more grass seed in the bare patches so a little watering required.
Don't laugh at the leaning birdhouse. The post has definitely warped over the Winter. Can't do much now as the Eastern bluebirds are checking it out for nesting again……so it will continue leaning and a replacement post will go on the 'to do' list for later in the year.
Sadly, this Winter we lost the large climbing trumpet vine which covered the arbor for several years.
Now pressure washing is going on and I'll be looking for something new to plant and hopefully flourish and climb.
The wooded area is across the street from the cottage. The perfect haven for many birds and the fox family!
The garden is definitely waking. Everywhere I see something pushing up through the soil. I admit this hosta was newly planted yesterday - my established ones are only tiny tips pushing through the mulch. The red maple tree makes a lovely backdrop for the bright green buds now bursting on the fig tree. Will it be a good fig jam year once again?
Oh one more thing……the bluebells are getting ready to open, now I really feel happy.
I'll be in the garden if you need me!
