With the cooler, rainy weather the Spring flowers have hung around a little longer this year.
We have enjoyed the sun for the last two days. It has been wonderful, but we have more rain coming for the weekend.
I have no idea what this is!
My dragonfly! He has been at three houses so far. I originally bought him here at a store in Brighton so he's come home.
Janice and Keith are slowly moving in the house two down from us. The gardens at their new house have been neglected. They are not gardeners themselves so plan on pulling out some beds in the backyard that are overgrown. Amongst the plants was this little pot of hens and chicks. I rescued it before it was thrown in the garbage. I also rescued some lily of the valley, sedums, brown eyed susan's, lupins and something else I have no idea what it is.
This tulip popped up at the base of one of our trees. It has been very interesting to see what comes up in our gardens as this is our first Spring in this house.
My parent's had two large clumps of lily of the valley at my childhood home. Our first cat Linus loved to lay in them when we put him outside on his harness. He came in smelling just lovely.
I brought this clump of hens and chicks from our old home.
This is one of the tulips I planted last Fall. I have no recollection of what colours they all are!
The Rock. I can't remember if I have posted about this before. In our last home we redid the front gardens. I wanted some rocks for the garden so we went to a construction site and asked if we could take some rocks. They were more than happy to let us. This one weighs I can't even imagine what and measures a foot by a foot and a half. Between us Chuck and I managed to get it into the car and back out again at home. Well, in the ensuing two years Chuck's shoulder got worse and there was no way we could lift it. When we moved here a kind, younger friend offered to lift it and bring it. I couldn't leave my rock! So it is here now.
This I purchased here in Brighton when Kim came for a visit last year.
One of my childhood cats Sonya. She loved to sleep on top of this little T.V. Trouble was she would tip over and crash to the ground, often taking the T.V. with her. She never was hurt but you might have an unexpected intermission in your show!
Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!
