Okay, according to the calendar it's been spring for a while, but it finally feels like it. The weather has been warming up, the snow is gone, my cats want to be outside a whole lot more. And today I went outside!
I finally made the time to get out and check the state of my flowerbeds today. There I am in my gardening boots.
I was happy to see green poking up already.
The lawn is not looking very green yet, but it will come.
This patch of Creeping Thyme is starting to turn green already.
I put in two new types of bulbs last fall. Looks like these ones will bloom before too long.
New Violas put in last year survived the winter and I have my first flower.
Much as they enjoy the freedom of being able to roam around the fenced in area of the yard, there are on occasion complaints from Fred and George.
They've staked out the gate - I fear I may be trapped...
But fortunately I manage a quick exit while the boys are distracted. How mean do I feel, locking my babies in like that. Better safe than sorry though. I want to keep them safe.
Hopefully next weekend I be able to get out and start cleaning up the flower beds. Things are farther along than I realized. I'm looking forward to getting out and playing in the dirt.
I had a good day. Got lots of laundry done. Got in a good workout. Made some oatmeal and put it in the fridge for breakfasts this week. Cut up a head of cauliflower to have ready in the fridge for lunches. Feel like I was really on top of things today. Of course I never manage to get as much done as I hope to, but that's not the end of the world.
I was also really hungry today for some reason. But for the most part, I think I did ok.
