My Little Garden Helper

                                                                         Hello everyone,
                                        We had a beautiful sunny day here today so
                                        what better place to be then in the garden?
To make it even  more fun I 
had a little garden helper as
our granddaughter Lila came
for awhile.

                                                                     Picking a bouquet.

                                                               A pocket full of posies.

                                                               Lila enjoys watering.

                                                                Then it was play time.

Thank you Lila for all your help
in the garden!

I am joining My Romantic Home for Show and Tell.
Home Sweet Garden Party.

Enjoy your  day and
Thanks for visiting.

                                                                Good morning!
                                    I woke up this morning to a late white frost
                                    so there was a heavy mist coming off the pond.
                                   There were a couple of Canada Geese enjoying
                                   the pond but as I stepped out unto the upper
                                  deck something must have scared them off.
                                  I got a quick shot off them in flight.
                                As I took a stroll down to the pond I saw the blackbird
                                going to feed her babies in the birdhouse Andrew built.
                                             As I walked around the pond I scared off
                                            this duck.                                                      
A little further around the pond and I scared
the mama duck from her nest. I am hoping to 
be watching little ones like these from last
year playing in the pond.
The fog is lifting as the sun rises.

                                        The serviceberries are in bloom now.
                                             Inside the boathouse looking out.

                                                  The boathouse reflection.

                                      The trees are leafing out now so it
                                      is a pretty time to enjoy a drive
                                     through the countryside.
                                   Hope you enjoyed a stroll around the pond
                                              with me on this beautiful sunny day.

                                            Finally, warm sunny days are predicted
                                            for the next several days.

                                                               Enjoy your day!

A Spring Garden Tour

Hello everyone,
 While the weather is remaining cool here
the garden is progressing and the grass 
is lush and green withe the trees
slowly leafing out.

                                                  Working in the garden is filling my
                                                        The dainty Thalia narcissus.

                                                      I don't have as many tulips this year as
                                                      last year but they are still coming into

                                                              White bleeding heart

                                   It was just a short tour today but warmer
                                             sunny days are headed our way so I will
                                             enjoy a better photo shoot then.

                                                          Hope your week is going well!

Just Peachy

                                                                           Hello everyone,

                                                   I hope your weekend went well. I enjoyed
                                                   getting back into the swing of things as our
                                                   tours with Japan started up again. I enjoy
                                                  their enthusiasm in spite of the damp and
                                                  cool weather we had for all 3 tours.
                                                      This morning I enjoyed a few hours
                                                  working in the garden before the rain
                                                 chased me indoors for a cup of tea.

                                                              I picked a bouquet of peachy daffodils
                                                              to enjoy.

                                                      I love the double peach ones.

                                Thank you for joining me for a peachy tea today.

                                            I am joining Tea Time Tuesday at
                                           Rose Chintz Cottage.
