Notes From the Garden: Signs of Spring

We are starting to see more and more signs of spring around here. All kinds of birds have returned, which is wonderful to hear in the early mornings and at dusk, a chorus of robins, grackles and mourning doves.

It’s such a fun time of year to start exploring our backyard again!

This week’s yard chores include raking the lawn, getting fresh mulch for all of the garden beds, and planting pansies.

  • Hello Terri,

    You are so lucky to be able to have bulbs popping up with that beautiful colour surprising you. Love the photo of the stepping stones,makes you wonder what is around the corner.
    Have fun in your yard.

    Happy days.
    Bev.

    • Thanks Bev. It’s always hard to go 4-6 months without any green leaves and flowers around here during the winter months. So it’s very exciting to see things come back to life in Spring. I do love to explore all those nooks and corners 😉
