I just love how green everything is right now. I have been such a sporadic blogger. At the beginning of April, Ben and Megan came and stayed with us. I knew that they would be on the road and that I would be grand childrenless in California. So I kept busy with them. I baked cookies and just had a nice time with them until they hit the road again. They are out of California now. Making their way to the rest of the county. The vlog is here
My tree roses are out here too and the butterfly bush. I love to sit here quietly and and watch all of the moths, butterflies and hummingbirds come and take drinks of nectar and never notice me sitting quietly. My Hydrangeas are starting to get flowers. Just little things yet, but it is spring.
Speaking of spring. This was the garden area in my back yard. These weeds just went crazy this year. Lots of lovely nettles. Best tea if you need iron. Did I dry it? No, I felt really wasteful too, when I was chopping weeds. I do enjoy chopping weeds by the way, its a good thing because we have them in abundance. I meant to show you a before and after, but because we have been busy with the flowerbeds, we still don't have it planted yet.
|After as of today, soon to be planted.|
I hope you have a lovely Monday.
I hope your day is filled with wonderful things. Hopefully spring is showing up for you.
Dreaming of April
Praying for her to arrive in all her finery
I'm dreaming of April
Maybe she'll linger this time
Turning to smile at me
These clouds of grey march in endless procession
I'm waking every day
Dreaming of April.
