I spotted another fairy door on our long walk on Sunday. Someone spent much time and effort with this one.
Earlier this week Janice popped by for a visit. The closing date on her new home is 18 days from now. The elderly gentleman has moved out and the house is empty. Janice wanted to get some photos of the back deck as she is having it torn out and a new one constructed to accommodate her hot tub.
Janice is not a gardener so mentioned that I could have any plants I wanted once the closing date passes.
There are four large clumps of rhubarb so I asked if I could have one of them. I haven't had my own rhubarb patch in 17 years!
The weather has been up and down for the past week. Friday morning we woke up to snow and it continued most of the day.
The feeders were very busy.
The goldfinches are really yellowing up.
A few nights ago the clouds were so interesting. I just stood and watched them for a few minutes.
Curly, Larry and Moe!
I slowly am putting out my garden stuff. Mr Sunshine still looked happy even though it was raining.
We stopped by the Airforce Base on Saturday for a moment. Recently they erected this giant sculpture. It is two hands holding up the globe. Not the best photo as it was from the car. I want to stop one day and take a photo from the side. You can see the hands better from that angle.
Snow still up in the Murray Hills a bit. I imagine by today it is gone.
The missing woman I mentioned last time has been found. She was found in the water about 30 kms (18 miles) away. The police are trying to patch together what happened. The day she went missing there still was ice on the Bay. Did her dog go out on the ice and became stranded? In her attempt to save him did she get in trouble herself? There never was any indication that she had been a victim of foul play. Very sad but the family has some closure.
It's that time of year! My car is coming out of Winter storage. Chuck changed the oil and gave it a once-over to make sure everything is o.k. Can't wait to drive it!
I am on the hunt for pansies. I always have a big pot at the front door to enjoy during the Spring. Hopefully I can get some this week.
