Busy as a bee.

Thank you everyone who commented to let me know what my pretty weed is. It has two names as most weeds do; Rape-seed and Field Mustard.
I think I'll call it Field Mustard.
It is a very pretty weed and it didn't take long for a visitor today to notice it and want to get up close and personal.
She was as busy as a bee out there.
I asked, "Do they smell nice, Gwynn?"
She said "Uh huh!"

Then it was time to get some sand out of her shoe.

This little one will sleep well tonight after a busy day helping nan and gramps at the mouse-house.
She made sand castles, carried around many buckets of dirt, helped re-seed the lawn, smelled as many Spring flowers as she could and finally got up on the old tractor with gramps.

"Let's see, which button starts this thing?"
Thanks for dropping by, munchkin.

We had lots of rain today so the gardens and the grass are taken care of for a few days.
We are in for a warm and sunny weekend.
Hope you are, too.

hugs, Deb


  1. I love the darling pics of Gwynn in her cute little hat. So much to explore. I'm kinda going with the name field mustard too. :-) Have a wonderful weekend, Deb.

  2. Gwynn is such a petite and pretty little girl. I love her sun hat.

  3. She's adorable! What a sweet helper! Wonderful photos....

  4. Sun shining brightly here this lovely Saturday morning Deb, but sadly no tiny grandchildren left to come enjoy the garden and take a wander with me - how I miss those days! I built a raised bed especially for Jasmin when she was tiny and taught her how to plant seeds - it's still there - and when home in Springtime I usually fill it with veggie plants such as tomatoes, cukes, peppers etc. Not this year though, too much travel. . . . . . .will be visiting the Farmers' Markets instead!

    Gwynn is so sweet - and I love her hat too!
    Happy weekend my dear - hugs, Mary

  5. Such a cutie and so busy at that age! I can't keep up with Tiger at all!!

  6. Love Gwyn's hat and the sunglasses atop her head are too much! She is one little cutie.

  7. Oh, I love that Sweet Little Honey Bee that came to visit your garden...


  8. Oh what a little love !!! Wonderful photos ! Thanks for sharing , Have a good day !

  9. A variety of rapeseed is grown here in Alberta for its oil; canola oil is derived from it. I'm not a farmer, so I had no idea what it was. Canola is another good name for it, though I think it may apply only to a specific species. There are vast fields of yellow when the crop is blooming.

  10. What a cutie! And my bees like those flowers!
