Much needed sunshine.😎

Well today my arms refused to do what I wanted to do! OA just 'screams' at my body 'THERE'S NO WAY YOUR DOING THAT TODAY'. Things I need to do, trying to get things sorted, have a spring clean, chuck the rubbish things out that's not needed. I'm trying to get started & ready for moving home, which should hopefully be within the next 6 wks. A tadge difficult when you live by yourself.

So, gave up on that idea.

Sat in the sunshine instead listening to mother nature. Happy Days 🌞

It's been gorgeous here in Telford in Shropshire, but now the sun has gone round. Hopefully more of this gorgeous sunshine will continue in the days ahead 🌞 x

The weather here has started to go back to normal. So us Vancouverites (Canada) can start the planting now. Yipee.

All my plants in the garden are behind in blooming because of the crazy weather we had this year. My daffs & tulips are just starting to bloom. My azaleas & poppies are starting to bloom too :)

So Sylvi, I reread what I wrote and I guess I should clarify. Yes I planted 38 dahlias, but my hubby dug the holes. He also cleaned up the yard, pushed the wheelbarrow and washed the deck.....and I supervised....lol.. I wish I could have done more, but I was exhausted. I'm still trying to find my endurance. I'm better than I was, but I'm not quite normal yet.

SlyvI & Suzannedale, reading through your post, I'm getting very intrigued about the out come of this competition you have between you both.

As for me, I don't have many plants to show off at the moment, only have a few pots, so can't join the competition. My daffs came up blind!

Hopefully this time next year, everything will be in full colour within my new garden. 🌱🌹🌻🌞

It's Springtime, so obviously things are just starting to liven up. But it's another gorgeous sunny day, albeit with a slight chill in the air. 😎

Hi Ruthy I feel sorry for you moving on your own,we have just moved my body wouldn't let me do much at all.

Anyway really enjoyed the sunshine yesterday we even had lunch outside, but it did get a bit chilly when the clouds came over.

Hope your move goes well.

Regards Mike

It's the packing I'll have to do by myself. The family will help on the day of the move, thank goodness. Still be shattered at the end of it though.
