Easter Sunday- start of the gardening season!

I must have hit the wrong button because this posting
did not get published on Sunday.
Here it is now.

What did we do on a beautiful Easter Sunday?
The day started with Easter Mass and 
an Easter Brunch at our little Anglican Church.
And finally the temperatures crept over the 50 F mark (10°C),
and in the afternoon it was quite nice to be outside.
I decided to take my folding bike and go
for a leisurely ride around in the neighbourhood.
(I was too lazy to take around the tripod,
just left the camera on the ground.)
Along the road I captured more signs that spring is on it's way.

The first bright colours in all the winter-brown surroundings.

Back at home I took a look around at my garden while my feathery friends were watching my movements.

Finally, I couldn't resist any longer, grabbed the gardening tools and started cleaning up my flower beds.

With that I declare: 
My gardening season for officially started! :))
May I dig down my rawhide until it is soft and mushy???
Definitely not! They are too expensive to just be dug down, Molly.
It is still a long way from having fresh vegetables.
Tomorrow I will begin to prepare my vegetable garden!


  1. The snow is gone and sunshine, perfect inspiration for this time of year.

  2. Love the garden and the signs of spring. You'll have lots of good eating out of there in just a few months.

  3. Hi Bea, love the photos! What will you plant in your garden beds? Enjoy gardening - that's one of my favorite things to do!

  4. I love your sparrow photos - you can tell it's cold outside when they are so fat and fluffed up, right?

    Beautiful Molly - she's pretty happy with that big rawhide bone.

    I DO miss having a garden. It's work, but so satisfying. :)


I love getting a comment from you now and then. Be patient, they will appear, I just have to see first if they are OK to publish. No anonymous any more. I am getting too much spam.
