April 1 is one of my favourite days of the year, right up there with Christmas and Halloween.
It is definitely spring (although the breeze is still on the chilly side) and the thermometer says it’s a scant eight degrees Celsius.
Do you remember the saying, “If at first you don’t succeed, try — try again”?
Things begin to get exciting this month. Spring is definitely in the air. There isn’t a single cloud to be seen.
This is a particularly lovely time of year. Many of the flowering trees are in full bloom.
Let’s talk for a moment about planting peas, please.
I’m putting half my seed in a bowl of water to soak overnight, to get them off to an early start.
I find this exciting ... the first seeds planted this spring! The start of something wonderful!
I have some interesting news for gardeners provided by Linda Gilkeson, a very knowledgeable gardener and speaker.
Almost the end of the bleakest month of the year but it hasn’t been a bad month as winter months go.
In a moment of weakness I bought a small package of something with a terrible last name.
Well, here we go again! Another year, another beginning and we wonder what this New Year will bring.
We were parked in downtown Sidney, still sitting in the car discussing the things we had to do before heading home.
I’m actually writing this on December 1 but I’m trying to get a little bit ahead as there is always so much to do at this time of year.
Oh, Heavens to Betsy it’s December! It can be a great month, full of lovely surprises.
One month from today we will be mopping up after another Christmas.
There has been a definite change in our weather the past couple of days. It’s much colder.
I am always so impressed when someone takes the time to write a note.
I have the guilty feeling that I should have talked about this a week or so ago
This year I hope to entice Annie to plant a few Pole beans for me
