They're here!


I heart them! It was so much fun watching the babies swim. The momma is the one looking down at her new family.

The family has moved on, they left 2 days after the babies came. They did the same thing last year. I look forward to seeing them next spring.

The ducklings are coming




A canadian geese has made a nest on the little island in our pond. She was here last year and left two days after the ducklings came. She's back this spring and has a lot of eggs. The ducklings should be here any day now!

Greenhouse Update







A few of you guys have asked how my seeds are doing. Well here are a few more pics. I ran out of room and had to put my lettuce in hanging pots : ) We planted a few things in the garden and around Mother's Day we plan on putting some of these seedlings in the ground.

Gardening



























It was beautiful all weekend so I was in the yard for hours. I love this time of year I think it's when the garden looks it's best.

New Path






We put in a new path! We've wanted a path to the pond since we moved in. Before, it was just grass. The stone was found around the yard in random places such as around the base of trees. We moved them all to the front for an inviting path : ) We've been working in the yard the past 3 weekends and will be back at it on Sat. Byron took out all of the overgrown hedges in front. Now we just need to decided what we want in that space. Of coarse one project always leads to more. We'd like to paint all the shutters, paint or replace the railings and window boxes...

Seedlings








Here are a few pics from inside our greenhouse. I have a lot of vegetables started and some flowers too.

California


My twin sister and I spent 5 days in California last month. Since I've got back I've been slacking at posting to the blog. Here's a pic my sister took, it was a mistake but we both like it.
