Yes, finally some beautiful weather that resembles Spring!
I have really enjoyed these warm days starting this week. I have enjoyed it so much out in the garden that I can hardly move. All those unused muscles are aching and screaming at me at every turn or bend. LOL! But it is all worth it to be outdoors again doing what you wanted to do all those L-O-N-G cold Winter days.
We could here ducks or geese in the area before we reached the lake, but when we got there none could be seen so maybe they were just passing through. The lake was calm and the deep water was green and pretty. A couple of young kids on Spring break from school were fishing along the banks.
The hyacinths are smaller this Spring and the leaf tips are browned from the cold. I see some of my Daffodils are not even forming buds. I need to give them some good soil conditioning and fertilizing or replace them this Fall.
Yesterday I redone the water pump pond with a new liner and a new pump. I still have to tweak it and get some more rocks and plants to hide the liner and the water pump needs a new paint job but I am glad that the worst of it is over. I am getting too old for laying rocks so if it goes kaput I will have to just fill it in and plant more flowers. Hmmm…no I love hearing the water while on the porch in the summer evenings with a good book.
There are leaves budding out, which seems like over night, around in the woods and the woodland daffodils may give me a few blooms. Amazing what two very warm days in a row can do to get things growing. Tips of tulips are showing along with the English Bluebells, so there are hopes of the gardens coming alive.
Everyone have a wonderful week and weekend ahead and…..
