The sun came out along with the new month, something we all need to see and feel.
The robin was singing in the new day.
Part of my social distancing routine is to get out into the garden each day, walk around, check for new growth, listen to the birds and basically get some fresh air.
With the sunny day I was able to start the garden clean up – one garden area at a time. The fence garden was the first area tackled. I love making ‘piles’ as my husband calls them, and the first big pile of the season was made by raking all the debris off the fence garden. Later I moved this pile to the back area where it can compost away. Lots of new growth was discovered here.
The hyacinths had been uncovered on a previous walk but now I was able to clear much more away and hopefully the sun will encourage these to grow more.
The back shade garden, started last year got a couple of new additions. One of the big Stumpy family got moved there. It used to be in the honeysuckle garden but the squirrels had decided to use it as a launch pad to jump to the feeder pole, so it got moved to the back of the tree garden. The other addition was al old birdhouse that is falling apart was placed on one of the other stumps.
What fun to watch Chippy munching on some leaves, probably to reline his/her nest.
The robin was spotted on one of the solar lights about a week ago on one of my garden walk about. Do you think he/she was looking for the light at the end of the tunnel?
With social distancing most of the parks for bird watching are closed, but do not fear, spring migration has not been cancelled.
The boots and bumbershoots have been put outside for a little spring cheer.
This cloud formation was amazing on April 2, 2020 and if you look really close you can just see the moon peeking through on the left.
Gardening is – growing food and flowers, a lifestyle, nurturing, exercise, learning, addictive, relaxing, therapy, hard work, and lots more
