Time to Plant!
What a joy to have warm sunny weather this weekend! I made a trip to the garden center and came home with an assortment of roses and flowers to spruce up the flowerbeds around the house! It is such a delight to be able to play in the garden once again! It's been nearly ten years since I had a garden of my own to play in!
Just a week ago, it looked like this! The joy of spring snow is that it melts away as quickly as it comes. I'm afraid we aren't quite through with winter yet as more snow is predicted for mid-week.
In the neighbor's cottonwood tree, there is a nest of Great Horned Owls! What a treat to see them regularly! They do help to keep the local prolific squirrel population in check.
That is a good thing as yesterday morning we had 11 of these critters helping themselves to the birdseed! ELEVEN!
We do enjoy the birds a lot. Yesterday we had a new visitor ~ a white crowned sparrow! The black and white stripes on the head are stunning!
Inside, there is a little white rose blooming on the kitchen windowsill. With the warmer weather it has been spending days on the porch in order to prepare for planting along the front walkway.
Happy Spring! It really feels like it's here at last!
