It is another beautiful day here. We had a nice Spring rain last night which made everything grow and made the air smell wonderful.
The garden is looking greener but still a little slower coming than last Spring. I have most of the gardens topped off with black soil, I will finish today and get my Herb Garden weeded. We start the Vegetable Garden containers tomorrow.
This is my front porch. Can you believe all of this mess is from one little Robin. She tried for 2 weeks to build a nest on the window sill but of course that is impossible. She kept Luca entertained though. He spent most of the 2 weeks sitting on the cupboard watching her. I hope she has given up. I love birds and they can build their nests anywhere on my property but not actually on the house. Birds get very viscious about their nests.
I finally finished my garden sign. The side facing the road says "Peace Blooms".
The other side is for my babies. It says "Duffy & Pennys Garden". This was their garden, they spent a lot of time here, Duffy was always lying right in the garden beds and I had to shoo him away all the time. I still see them there and I know they are with me when I am working.
As for my new baby, this was Rufus last night. He spent the day chasing squirrels and talking to the neighbour dog Jessie. He loves the cows but those squirrels are his obsession. Well, it is so gorgeous I hate to work I would rather just sit in the garden and read but if I don't do it no one will.
Stop by LUCYS GARDEN. My post from yesterday has a delicious recipe I made for lunch.
