It's a bit early yet, but still I can see the sun in the front of my yard so that is a good sign. Tootsie and I want to get outside again today for a while. Plus, later today, the fellow from the nearby nursery is coming to give me an estimate for bringing in loam and hydro seed for both of the side yards. Oh boy, it's starting to feel like Spring!!
Yesterday afternoon, one of the dwarfs helped me to set up my starter seed trays, and I planted lots of poppies and sweet peas. I also started a pot of tomatoes, cucumbers, strawberries and wildflowers. Then I went to the local Walmart and purchased some new tulips and primrose. I am not done yet, but it's already feeling good!!
Kyra sent me a couple of links to check out for butterfly gardening, so I'll be quite busy today. Next, I want to order some multi-colored butterfly bushes and maybe one or two trumpet vines. Up until last year, I had some gorgeous purple wisteria on the side of my house. So maybe I'll get another wisteria plant too.
Now how about some photos from my outing at the park this past weekend. People were tossing crackers and bread into the pond for the ducks and geese and gulls. Here are some photos of a couple of the gulls getting their share of the crackers.
Now I think I'll have another cup of coffee and get dressed. There's a couple of scatter rugs that need to be put into the wash (Tootsie's contribution to keeping me busy) and some mail to put out. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a magnificent day.
Hugs, Edna B.
