This is one of my favorite flowers that bloom in the yard. It is a clematis. This will be its second year so I am anxious to see how it does this summer. We still have no color in the yard so I have been enjoying looking through old pics.
We are having the eavestroughing and the works done to the house. Yesterday two of the crew were here and one commented about the yard. He said, This is a beautiful backyard, you have your own park he said. I said well you should see it when all the flowers are blooming! My house is 860 square feet. I use the outside like an extension of the house. I love my little house and can not imagine having a huge house with barely a yard. I don't like to be inside, I like to barbecue,,,my husband is a great cook. I putz in my yard, feel the warmth of the sun on my body, I dance in the rain...some rains are so nice and warm....and I don't care what the neighbors think. I sit and draw or just be....lost in the peace that surrounds me. I may have mentioned this before but last year a picture of my pond made it into the neighborhood paper. Last Saturday I was asked if I wanted to be one of the judges judging the front yards. I was flattered and as long as I am feeling well enough...I will do it, should be quite fun and I can get some ideas for my next project. On Tuesday my husband took me to Canadian Tire to get some plants as here in Canada we can usually plant on the May long weekend. As we were driving it was raining and that turned into snow. It was very cold so I did not get much of a chance to look around. I won't venture back on the weekend as it will be way too busy for me. Anyway I hope you are all enjoying time outside. I have seen some fabulous photos on some of the blogs I follow....They keep me going until mine come up. Heres to a lovely spring and summer ahead of us. Take Care, its 421 am and I think I might just go back to bed before the birds start singing.
