Day 130


I love a good sunset.

My last sunset picture was just over a week ago and there were no leaves on the trees! Wow!

Day 128


A pair of tree swallows checking out one of the bird houses.

Day 127


This is the first time that I have planted annuals when the tulips are just starting to bloom (because of the late spring).

❤Joanne

Day 124

The leaves have come out over the weekend!


Maple (not the syrup or Canadian flag kind, that's out east).


Hawthorn.

Day 123


We had a huge thunderstorm today - above 30℃ (mid 80's℉) temperatures for 2 days, so it was bound to happen.
At the beginning of the week there was freezing temperatures and now summer has arrived!
Hopefully it is here to stay.


There was a double rainbow after the storm.

Day 122


Last night - almost 10pm and still light.
The leaves are just starting to come out.

❤Joanne

Day 120


All the plants came in for the night - just in case it freezes.

❤Joanne

Day 118


A good day of rain. Maybe May showers will bring June flowers!

❤Joanne

Day 117


Time for barbecuing! First time this year.

❤Joanne

Day 116


First blooms of the year! Forsythia.

❤Joanne

Day 115


I hung the laundry out to dry for the first time this year.

❤Joanne

Day 113


I thought that my photo of the day would be the fact that we had snow this morning, 
but this happened at noon -


The shed for the baseball diamonds behind our home was on fire!


This was later in the day.
Word on the street is that it was an electrical fire.

Day 112


We'll be eating rhubarb in no time!

Day 111


I am knitting mittens with the yarn I spun last week.

❤Joanne

Day 110


I thought this cloud looked interesting.

❤Joanne

Day 109


Another beautiful day for 'spring clean-up' - the lawn this time.

❤Joanne

Day 108


Before


After

I cleaned up all the flower beds ready for planting.
Lots of plants show no signs of life - I am hoping it is because it is still unusually cold, and not because they didn't survive the harsh winter.

❤Joanne

Day 107


I assume this is the same sparrow from Day 92 - he has been there the whole time.

❤Joanne

Day 106


I finished the quilt top and knitting a scarf, so I started something new - a spinning project with fibre that I dyed.

❤Joanne

Day 105


Today all the snow tires came off the cars and were replaced with the summer tires!

Day 104


The last of the snow this morning.


By this afternoon - whoo-hoo! It's finally all gone!


This is a flock of swans that flew by this evening - the first flock I have seen this year.

❤Joanne

Day 103


Today our oldest son is 23 - my husband made the cake - strawberry black forest cake -it was delicious.


The last of the snow was spread around to speed melting.
There is baseball practice going on in the field.

❤Joanne

Day 102


These blocks are becoming this - 



❤Joanne

Day 101


These tulips came up since yesterday (that section of the garden has a lot of rocks!).


That's what +15℃ does!
