emoticon Good Morning!
I had a terrific day yesterday. I cut away the dead evergreens that died this past winter...orange evergreens are dead Fred.
My rib didn't like me using emoticon the loppers...I guess. Planning to transplant a rhodo there and some shade loving plants: Lady's Mantle, wild ginger, etc.

I also picked up a 3 tiered bird bath fountain that I need to re-finish.
I am working on getting outside to enjoy a bit of every Summer Day we have. Last night was so clear for emoticon star gazing too! Have a great day today!

A lot has changed since May 18th..our first 70F day. Temps continue to vacillate. This morning it was 50F and appears this is where they will stay today.
rainy morning here...last night the air was so saturated looked like fog I thought we were having hail because the rain came down and was so heavy the raindrops looked like they were half dollar-size raindrops
Our Meteorologist Paul Douglas says this has been the wettest (Jan-May) on record for 144 years!
It is a great day to prep meals to serve when the sun and heat return.
It is a great day to make lists of things to be done.
It is a great day to organize an area that needs it.
It is a great day to read a book.
A wonderful day to visit the Conservatory or other indoor gardens,,,even garden centers!
Or even watching a video of gardens around the world.

Look who came to visit our yard today...Cuddles spied it from our French Doors and had to go out and take a look! Cuddles discovered a Blandings turtle in our yard this morning!
In other states they are endangered. They are protected in Michigan.

The last few days we have had so many birds visiting our yard or flying over it that include: lots of robins, mated cardinals, goldfinch, blue jay, bald eagle, herons, chickadee, song sparrow, cedar waxwings, heard a catbird or a mocking bird, a little blackbird don't know what it was, and the blue birds are nesting. We have more birds than the aviary around the lakes in Minneapolis! Anyone interested in birding should love Anoka County!

So far 2 dozen daffodils have bloomed plus all my forsythia bushes! Happy Mothers Day! emoticon

The leaves on the trees are the size of mouse ears!
My goals to complete this growing season:
working on getting new steps and landing made for kitchen door- our primary access to home with a gable roof overhang to protect the landing from snow & ice. Then a new driveway, aerating the lawns, bringing compost, horse manure and wood chips to the gardens, removing extra lilacs and old fashioned phlox and transplanting perennials and re-doing the daylily bed and the blue garden next to the deck.
Did you know that wasps, hornets, yellow jackets, and Queen honey bees can sting multiple times. It is only the worker honey bee that can only sting once because they have a barbed stinger that comes out as they sting and they die.

Onespot if I lived anywhere else I would probably not mind Feb. but I live far out of any town and in bad weather which we have had no end to this winter its just a lot of work trying to keep everything going.A lot of people here have had frozen water lines and sewer lines and all kinds of troubles so we will be more then Happy to kiss this winter goodby...problem is that we still have a couple bad months left as it snowed into April last year so you can see what goes here. When I lived in the twin cities I didnt mind winter so much its a LOT warmer in the southern part of our state!

Hi everyone, hope you're all well.

The weather is awful here, wind, rain and flooding. The poor birds are coming into the feeders in droves, we had a great big flock of around sixty green and gold finches this morning ( usually they're field birds) and eleven collared doves were sat patiently waiting in the cherry tree.

The sparrow hawk is back too, he's got easy pickings with so many birds looking for food.

Just back from my phototherapy session, it's three times a week in a town about twenty miles away. We go early just as it's getting light so there are plenty of wildlife opportunities. This morning we watched a sparrow hawk hovering and swooping down on it's prey and then a beautiful snowy white barn owl quartering the fields. The rising sun looked beautiful making a rosy hue across the sky and fields, everything sparkled at minus 2 degrees.

Great news Ginger, glad your weather is picking up.
We seem to be a bit better, not so much rain!
Not that I've been out much, the cold air makes me cough though I am feeling lot better.

Good morning everyone and a belated Happy New Year to you all, sorry I haven't been around for a while but I hope to start checking in regularly again now.

I see from our news reports you're experiencing winter in a big way, it's the same phenomena we got in 2010 and if it ought like we had it's awful. I hope you're all ok.

We've got gale force winds and torrential rain, it rained all day yesterday, then all night and it's still raining now!
We're lucky though, some places are flooded! I'm just thankful we live on a little hill.
Not as cold as you Ginger, we're 5 degrees this morning but it was 2 yesterday.
I'll be huddling round the fire 'til this blooming bronchitis is cleared up!

On a happy note, we have a lone snowdrop open in the garden, brave little flower!
Have a great day emoticon
