It was a beautiful sunny day, once the fog cleared. During the foggy morning we enjoyed the company of friends at our regular Friday morning breakfast.
By the time we were home and ready to go to work, the sky was blue and the sun was shining brightly, gently warming the chilly air. Tom has been working outside in the yard as weather permits, but this was the first day I went back to gardening, after my winter hiatus.
All together we worked about four and a half hours each, interrupted by our lunch hour. We got lots done and while we may be stiff and sore in the morning, it feels great!
We got the roses pruned, as well as the hardy fuchsias and a few other things.
The lawn got its first mowing.
The sword ferns, of which there are many, are all clipped.
And things are growing!
The miniature tete-a-tete daffodils are blooming, and the native red current is ready to burst into bloom.
The witch hazel show will soon be fading.
We have had a mild winter, so the hydrangeas are already budding out.
And tomorrow night we "Spring Ahead"!
