What a Difference Two Weeks Makes!



It's Easter weekend and the snow is almost all gone! Just some hold-out patches of ice in very shady spots. Yesterday I spent all afternoon raking up the back yard and cleaning out the big flower bed where the irises grow. The yard sure looks a lot better than it did a couple of weeks ago. And of course I had my faithful companion and supervisor Duffy to keep me to the tasks!

Duffy surveying the raked lawn
Oh oh--tail's up! Barking at someone going down the sidewalk!

Coming to tell me I did a good job and now let's play!
Notice the lawn chair and the snow shovel--only in Canada!

Wow, it's looking great there...spring! Now the lawn just has to green up and you can start getting the garden ready.

Ha at the snow shovel...haven't seen one of those since we left...

LOL! Yeah the robins are back and the tulips are poking out of the ground! Might just be an early year for putting the garden in.
