April 10th… gardening and turtles 

I do this to myself every year … I don’t do a lot of  stretching  or bending through the winter months then come spring after a few days of digging ,hoeing and pulling weeds, I walk around like an old lady ,and popping painkillers before bedtime.😟 oh well ..the flowers will be worth it.

I didn’t do much sewing this week as the weather has been so lovely ,it is also high time I tackle the weeds . The flowers really took a set back when we had the killing frost a few weeks back,some will not bloom for the buds were frozen. The plants didn’t die so that is good. Here is  peek into my little world..


Verbena blooming


Viburnum 


Kiwi starting to grow


Flowerbed duties


Lovely field of weeds ,our field so less.


Jenny ,our coyote chaser, a lot of farms have donkeys in the pastures for they will keep the coyotes out .


The sun was setting at one end of the house and the moon was rising on the other end


And now for the turtle ….my grand children found this little box turtle . It’s shell was still soft ,so it was newly hatched.



It is starting to eat for the children. They informed me his name is “Bert” and if they find out later on it’s a girl then his name will be changed to “Gert”. 😀   Bert is now a family member. 

Have a lovely week, friends.
