Here I sit on an early evening Friday .. rainy and cold yet again, for an April 19th.
I am hoping like mad that the weather forecast for Sunday will ring true and be at least sunny .. around 14 degrees and if we are lucky perhaps it will climb a wee bit more than that.
I still have some garden cleaning to do .. but green life is poking through, smiling at me in my doubt of Spring truly coming and staying before the" speed of light" exchange to summer.
It looks bare and brown in my garden .. nothing akin to what it looks like fully dressed, as the snazzy party animal I know it can be during the height of said party.
Glaring examples :
I AM CANADIAN .. this is what we go through .. I have to tell the truth.
So while other gardeners are celebrating Spring flowers ? I go mad for tiny bits of greenery that have survived or are poking their heads up to make me sigh with relief .. uttering thanks for small miracles.
I have a "Dead Like Me" list (one of my favorite TV series ever!) .. of plants that have joined the other world ... 3 Japanese Maples .. that really has gotten to me because these were supposed to be long lived companions to my garden that I truly loved ... this is going to be hard .. digging them up and saying good bye .. but we have all gone through this ritual, right ?
Other news .. I keep snapping some amazing sunrises by sheer luck
