Hi! It has been forever since my last post, and the mood has changed dramatically around here.
Spring is here, and Mom LOVES spring
. She also has a very loving man in her life. We still miss Jake very much, but Mom no longer bursts into tears at the mere mention of him.
Our garden was one of three featured for a local wildflower garden tour on April 19. Our Virginia bluebells (Mertensia virginica
) were in full glory that day.
Mom asked me if I wanted to participate in the tour by being outside,
but I told her that I would rather nap. We had 117 guests visit our garden that Sunday afternoon. Refreshments were served on our deck and the guests had a good time. The non-floral stars of the tour were a pair of flickers who were busy carving out a nesting cavity high in our dead ash tree.
It has been very warm (HOT
) lately. Mom had to work late last night, but she came home tonight and took me outside with her. Can you find me in this photo amidst the wild geraniums?
She stalked me with the camera.
I showed my displeasure by slipping under the shed. A groundhog and an oppossum lived here at different times.
Mom continues to be busy with work and her activities. She is co-chair of a native plant sale that will take place the morning of May 9. I continue to conserve energy and nap.
