Anyway I worked like a dog on Saturday--while the dog, Duffy slept in the shade!! I moved that pile of large rocks that was by the greenhouse, put in the fence around the front flower bed, and trimmed and mowed the front and back lawns. Sunday I was exhausted and my arms ached. So I took it easy, other than going to check out the plants at Canadian Tire--so was half of the population in north central Edmonton! Then I stopped at the Great Canadian Stupid (or Stupor) Store, where the other half of north central Edmonton was shopping. And I think I might be picking up some of Jolene's 'good' luck--a little kid, around 2, whose parents weren't watching or caring about what he was doing slammed a grocery cart into the back of my thighs. OUCH!! I said "Jeee whiz" (really!)and limped off to the bakery department. The mother apologized and I could hear the kid wailing all the way across the store! I wanted to go back and say to the kid, "Why are you crying, you didn't have a cart slammed into you!!?? If anyone should be crying, it should be me!"
Besides this fun event, I also took some pictures of the loveliness of spring in my yard.

|Finally my tulips got a chance to bloom--after a couple of years of being frozen/snowed on!!|
