Garden Thursday

Hello and Welcome to Garden Thursday. We had three days of rain and gloom from Sunday to Tuesday. We had so much rain there is a small pond yet on the other side of the trail. Mum is enjoying seeing the little kids over there splashing around in their boots and such. Although she is waiting for a splash when someone falls!
 The alli-yums are making progress to bloom. Things are super slow this spring. The crabby apple tree hasn't bloomed yet. The lilacs haven't bloomed and some trees aren't showing leaves yet either! Mum says we are 2-3 weeks behind.

 They finally came to pick up our brush piles. Took mum a long time to get it all out there, it was all picked up in about 5 minutes! Mum is happy she didn't have to haul it all out.
 Mum put down some fresh dirt and grass seed in the front of the house where the grass is kinda thin. She even roped the area off so the man in the blue shorts doesn't walk here. They like to take short cuts across the lawn.
 The old bird feeder pole rusted off and fell over this week. Mum said that is pretty good as she got 17 years of use from it. She is trying to figure out if she will replace this or just go with the ones she has left. Since this isn't the main birdie feeding time she has time to figure it out. 
 So we are expecting to have continued sunny days. Mum is looking forward to being able to sit outside and enjoy the sun.

Stay safe, stay healthy.  Love Virginger, Glimmer, Trooper and Fleur.
