A Walk in the Park

It has been a slow Sunday morning.  But we have time to be slow. 
That's a good thing. 

I got back to doing my exercise routine after two days off. Then we went for our two mile walk over in the neighborhood park. Spring is happening there too, as the warm weather we had last week has started the natives to blooming. 

 The red currant is looking lovely.
 The Indian Plum is the first to pop out in wooded areas, 

The Oregon Grape is opening it's bright yellow buds. 

Friday we went to breakfast, as usual, then went for our two mile walk. In the afternoon we puttered in the yard. Saturday morning I took the light rail into the city for a medical appointment while Tom went without me to a garden club outing.  We puttered a bit, and sat a bit and organized a bit in the afternoon.

We were forecast to have rain but so far it hasn't materialized, and we really need it. Since it's still dry, we'll go out and work in the yard again this afternoon. There are always jobs to do. 

The University of Washington Huskies are playing right now in the NCAA round of 32. They are trailing North Carolina, and I don't have much hope. I'll probably just listen to the game as I go outside. I don't think I've earned  three hours of sitting in front of the TV in the middle of the day. 


  1. Yep, your spring gives me hope!!!

  2. So nice to see the red currant in bloom again. I'll have to wait to see it as there doesn't seem to be any around here. :-)

  3. You do have the most beautiful springs in Seattle. Over there, it's the same ol' same ol', but it's still rather nice. We have to travel to see spring or fall.

  4. I'm surprised that you actually need rain so soon. Your soil must be as sandy and well-draining as ours!
    The red currant is lovely. I'm sad mine died a few years back. I should replace it.

  5. Spring seems to have a routine of it's own. We have to rearrange things like exercise time.

  6. springis every where, we went for a fun sunday afternoon drive today. Think i'm figuring out this google + think that has caused problems with my comments and commenting.

  7. Didn't know you got days off exercising as you are always so busy. So glad you get time to just mellow.

  8. It is looking pretty and like spring there. That red currant has beautiful blooms. Your gardens and flower beds all look good with the new mulch added. I've just caught up with your last two posts. We were happy to see Carolina win the game yesterday, but I was not happy to see Duke beat UCF. That made me sad.

  9. I like the Indian Plum---smells good too---we call it Osoberry---bears like it too. I am glad the natives are coming on. We have Skunk Cabbage popping up out this way too
