Another beautiful day!

Today we had another perfect day.
We sat out with shorts on, in the shade.
Tonight we took a walk back on the property, we found and picked two bunches of May Flowers, and heard a whole chorus of peepers. Our property borders with an old railway bed and tressel or trestle(not sure which) over a brook where the peepers live, an absolutely wonderful sound!!
On a not so good note I had the first TICK of the season yuck!

A beautiful day!

We had a lovely day today!
The weather was absolutely beautiful, about 20C in the sun.
We worked around the yard, we split wood and piled it, raked up winter yuck, and counted the lilies again. When we took #2 son to work, we stopped and bought a new BBQ, we hadn't had a BBQ for a couple of years so it was quite a treat!! We also bought a small patio block to stand the bird bath on in the lily garden. I am so excited it is looking like spring, finally!

I can not believe that it is the 22nd already, where has the time gone.
It rained and the wind blew all day, I'm anxious for the weather to clear in the next few days to see what may appear in my flower gardens. Each day I check on my lilies, tonight after I put the chickens to bed I peeked in the garden and a new lily was poking out.
My son planted a few veg seeds in the house last week and now some are 8 inches high, and it is too cold to put them out not sure if we can keep them till it is time! Fun experiment anyway!!
