Just one daffodil blooming, LOL

Goodmorning everybody!

Yeah, of all the daffodils we had in our garden I guess there is just one left. But it is doing a great job showing off, hahahaha.
It was a rather quiet week, and I love writing that down. It may seem boring, but it isn;t.
I did all the shopping for the weekend in time, and also did some household chores and even did some work in the garden this week.
Jan and I moved a little bush to another spot, where it has more room and it brightens up that part, cause it has wonderful light green leaves. Then we moved a rose bush to the former place of the little bush, so now that rose also has more air and room to grow.
I am rather happy with it.
We also placed the old rosebow at the end of the path towards the little shed, now I just have to find either a rose or clematis(or perhaps both) to grow there. But now is not yet the time to find them, I think I will have to wait for another month.
Jan already put down the groundcover between the stepstones of the path, so it looks nice again and it keeps away the weed growing a bit.
Slowly the garden is getting shape again, now we will have to wait for end of April and start of May to put in all the bulbs of the dahlia's and also some other species. And then cross fingers they will do their best later this summer.
some of the seedlings also try to do their best, but are still very fragile and I don;t know how many of them really will survive. Oh well, that's part of the fun to grow them yourself. Sometimes disappointment(and that is a learning curve)and sometimes great succes(which brings a smile to our face, LOL).

Weather here is slowly getting better, for sure temperature is climbing. we might reach some 10-12 C which is not too bad. Next week there might be some more rain, but also some sunshine, so it is kind of unsure, but much better already than a few weeks ago. Frost is out of the air at night, I hope it will not return sneaky somewhere in April(it sometimes does for a few days). And this weekend we will have to put on Summertime at our clocks. Must not forget to change the time on Sunday. We still have a couple of clocks on batteries, lucky that the one of the computer and tv and dvd change automatically.

Okay, it's about time I put on some clothes and go to the drugstore to get a couple of medicins for Jan. Don't want him to run out of them during the Easter weekend, do we?
I have for you Arlene's clusters made with the WInters End kit.
Wishing you all a happy and blessed Easter!

Happy Easter to both of you...I can't believe how long it has been since I've visited...and left a message for you my friend! I've just been so super busy and I guess with the advancing slowing down because of age....I take longer to do things now....LMBO! Actually I am pretty tired when I get home from work and get my babies all fed and loved on, then it is bed time, but only 3 more weeks, then I can get back to pestering everyone again! Thanks so much for the lovely kits and please let Arlene know I appreciate her lovelies too! My babies are back to sleep and I think I will join them as I catch up on some things I have DVR'd that I missed because I was sleeping....ROFL! Getting old is not for sissies! But I love every minute of it! Have a wonderful week ahead my friend and enjoy your Easter Sunday! Hugs, Mat

Good morning Kyra. I hope your Easter Sunday was as beautiful as ours was. It's so good to see Spring arriving and all the plants perking up and growing again. Once that first blossom pops open, all the rest of the flowers follow. This is a wonderful time of year.

Your garden sounds beautiful. Don't forget to take photos so that we can see it too. It's raining here today, but it's not a cold rain. I've put the bills out in the mailbox so now I'm going to get comfy in my lounge chair and rest a bit. You have a beautiful day, hugs, Edna B.

Arlene, thank you for the clusters and frame.

Kyra, when I moved into this house I inherited an already growing garden of volunteers. I have quite a patch of wild Mountain Strawberries, and some Rhubarb, only 3 plants but they are strung out so I'm going to transplant one of them and have a nice little bunch of Rhubarb. A young friend brought me a piece of the strawberry/Rhubarb pie she made yesterday. Yumm. I have been given 3 vertical gardens so I'm going to clean them up and get them attached to the fence where the sprinkler system hits them and also the afternoon sun.
