A Beautiful Outdoor Saturday

Saturday, January 26, 2013

This afternoon the weather co-operated and I was able to rake the debris out of my garden beds. I had seen my retired neighbour, Tom, bag all sorts of trimmings last weekend so that was my encouragement.

I filled 4 buckets and now the soil under all the shrubs and around the bulbs looks tidy. A lovely side of this activity is that my hair smells of fresh ozone. I love the smells of spring!

I have flower gardens around the perimeter of my house and today I was witness to the appearance of the tiny, white Snowdrops. Those are the first bulbs to blossom where I live. Weeks ago the Primulas made their colourful showing. I have inherited 4 purple Primulas, a yellow and two red ones.

I was pleasantly surprised when I first came out to the coast, that the grocery stores had potted plants out of doors all through January and February. What? Are you kidding?

I've done some grocery shopping, returned some library books due today and washed & dried 2 loads of laundry.

And now... I sit with a much-deserved cup of hot, Earl Grey tea. (not in a favourite china mug) but enjoyable just the same.

Anyone else feel that their Saturday was beautiful or well spent?

    Sounds great! I did many chores as well and did a Pilate's workout.

Your weather sounds inspiring. Enjoy!

    My Saturday also was satisfying. Bowling practice with friends, laundry, changed bed linens (fresh sheets are one of the world's small pleasures), then cleaned out several bags of junk from a back yard storage shed in preparation for a big yard sale in two weeks. Now a hot shower then those clean sheets. emoticon -- Lou

    had to work 1/2 day, then the grocery store and then home to clean house so I didn't get to enjoy any leisure activities.
