|Our oval planter Easter Sunday, the lighting was just right|
Our cold spring continues. Last week we had a few days in the 60's and even one day the temperatures reached 70 degrees. I loved that! However, today we're back to the high 30's and the cold winds. Spring, oh when will you arrive?
Probably what will happen we'll go straight into the hot and humid days, as has happened so often in the past years.
The past week I've accomplished a lot of yard work outside. I love doing yard work. For me, it is a form of relaxation. I'm reading a wonderful biography of Rock Hudson. Rock also found doing yard work on his three and half acres of land in the Hollywood Hills his favorite form of relaxation. Hey, something I have in common with Rock Hudson (smile).
Last week I had delivered six cubic yards of mulch. Every day I've spread at least four wheelbarrows of mulch. The best kind of exercise. Maybe I can make a dent in those love handles that I've acquired the past few years. But then maybe not. I think I'm stuck with those darlings for the rest of my life. That's why I wear loose clothing now.
|Me working with those heavy stones from Lowe's|
I also had a load of stone blocks deliver from Lowe's last week. Eighty stones. I laid every one save one. Now that is some exercise. Those stones were heavy.
|This is the robin's favorite bird bath, maybe they like the statues|
This is the first year that I'm really pleased with the amount of daffodils I have blooming. I want our little piece of Heaven here to burst in happy yellow every spring. This fall I will plant at least another hundred daffodils. Can never have enough daffodils.
The robins are back, pooping in our birdbaths. Robins are harbingers of spring to but I wish they wouldn't poop in the birdbaths. They're the only bird that does.
Spring is finally here folks, in spite of the cold chill in the air. So happy to be here to enjoy yet another year of rebirth.
