Finally, a nice day - 68˚F (20˚C)

Finally we got our first day with temperatures was up to 68˚F (20˚).
With all the grey and cold weather lately I felt that there was not much to write about.
In the morning, view from my porch.

A tray of flowers for my garden is already in place. Some will go into my vegetable patch, the others will find a spot around the house. (And the table needs a fresh coat of paint).

A day ago, I saw the "enemy" right in front of the porch!
I took the photo through the old wavy window panes, hence the blurriness. 

That hare was facing Molly who was tied up by the entrance. 
Since she did not move, he came up to her as close as 13 feet (4 m)! Maybe he realized that the dog was on the leash.

An hour later I was busy fixing the fence. Under the old window frames I am growing 3 tomato plants. Lettuce, spinach and peas are peaking their first leaves through the ground.
It was high time that I protected my future food against hungry hares!

The brown patch in the lawn shows the way my garden was arranged last year. I hope it will be green again in a few weeks time. 
I got the tricky lawn mower started as well! 
The grass is growing fast now and I mowed for the first time this season.
View from my garden over to Eastport, ME.
I think I have to set up a bench here - just to be able to sit and enjoy the view.


  1. Hi Bea,
    I love the looks of spring around your place. You are so close to the water. Give Molly a rub and a hug from Joe and I.

  2. Bunnies are so cute - too bad they love to raid gardens. Your view is just lovely...

  3. Enjoy that warm weather as it is way too late, make up for lost time.

  4. Keeping busy - so good for the soul - enjoy the warmed up weather! Love your view! It's calling for relaxing on an Adirondack chair in the sunshine.

  5. Even though it hasn't been particularly pleasant here, I've already had to cut the grass twice! We've had just gobs of rain I'm afraid. It's nice to see some sunshine. Somewhere. It comes out here once in a while, but that's about it.


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.
