The poppies are starting to green up and we got the beds cleaned up and ready...again.
I hung my new spring wreath. It has things I have collected from the yard on it, except the forsythia (shh....they're silk, from the craft store). I took the white bird feather off as I think it is too stark. I am waiting for some pussy willows and when I find them, they are going on the wreath too.
A few weeks ago, when I was pruning the bushes in the Granary garden I found an abandoned hummingbird nest with two tiny un-hatched eggs among the broken, hatched shells. I shellac-ed the nests and eggs and babied them for a week. I didn't want to break those eggs. Then Oops...I dropped the glue gun on one when I was gluing the nest to the wreath so now there is only one egg left. Can you see it in the nest?
Sweet Rachel (who stayed with us on Thursday nights) is done with her nursing clinicals in our city for this semester. She left a parting gift. Aren't they lovely. After a weekend of yard work and tree pruning, it's nice to have a bright spot in the house.
Hope you had a Happy Easter weekend.
