It might say spring on the calendar but we still have snow and nights that go below freezing to contend with. March is like that. We do have robins though and that's a sure sign of spring.
April will bring us green grass and wild spring flowers pushing through the ground. That's what I look forward to. The birds, squirrels, chips and our crows are beginning to gather material for their spring nests. I often see one of the crows fly by with her beak full of dry grass. Up to the tree-tops she goes. The beauty of nature coming to life right before your eyes.
It's been a very long winter and an extremely cold one. Now the sun is warmer and fills our main room with sun-puddles for the cats and the slow-going dahlia sprouts I have started.
Some of my plants are happy in the loft under grow lights. I will have lots of dahlias to add to the veggie garden area, grow in pots around the potting shed and to also start a new garden near the house.
The cats are doing well and their friendship grows deeper with time. Cora will be three in June and Wilson is five now. They are young, healthy, beautiful creatures who we adore.
I hope you are loving the start of spring in your area. Most of you are far ahead of us here in Eastern, Ontario and I really enjoy looking at your gardens come to life. It gives me hope that it won't be long now for us.
Enjoy and be kind,
