Luscious and Green...Those Ferns I've Seen....


The weekend was great...
Not as warm as they had
predicted...but a great sunny weekend, to be working outdoors...

It started out quite windy,
kind of a N/W wind...chilly..

But...the abundance of 
wildlife...and a LOT of
yard work...made it very
pleasant indeed...

 The Lily-of-the Valley
are finally blooming...I think next time I will cut some and put them in a small enjoy them longer...

 My Lilies are HUGE...didn't see any LILY BEETLES..but noticed a few holes where they must have been munching...stay away from my lilies....go and nibble on the dandelions...or better yet those darn stinky Stink the way...I have a MILLION of...pulled about 3/4 of a million on the weekend...
 And...I am especially pleased with my FERNS this year....even though it was a dry Winter and Spring....they are looking very LUSH....hopefully they will last...

 The weekend ended on a calm note...Sunday morning the winds had diminished...had our morning coffee on the deck....when we left around 2pm it was 23 the time we got to my daughter and son-in-laws by 3pm it was down to 17 degrees...quite a drop in temp as we came around the Lake...


I will close with a ROSE OF SHARON from
last summer.....

Hope you all had a great weekend...

  8. I did bring in a bunch of lily of the valley and have them in a vintage glass vase with a little handle. My Mom used to do the same. I keep going by and lifting the little basket vase for a sniff of heady spring. I love it.
