BITS OF THIS AND THAT

SOME HAVE A GUARD DOG

Some people have a guard dog.

We have a guard mallard.

Every morning he stands in our front yard

quacking away at anyone who

gets to close.  Must be a nest nearby that

we can’t find.

What better protection could a poor girl want?

Then there is this little cutie who

chatters away when I get

near the garden when it has

taken up residence.

Ahh, the wonders of the animal kingdom.

FINALLY SPRING IN MINNESOTA, MAYBE

The tulips have been blooming for several days now.

It’s good that they are a hardy plant as

we have been having temps about 20 degress

below normal here.

It’s so cheery to see these right

outside the front door.

And the pear tree is blooming.  These

blossoms are so fragile looking, but

do produce some very good fruit.

I’ve been working hard in the garden, splitting sedum

and hostas and replanting them into

areas that are bare

My philosophy is—the less bare ground

the fewer weeds.  One can hope.

I’ll either have some nice green plants

or some lovely brown leaves.

I also bought 10 bags of chips that I spread

some of the gardens.  I’ll have to get more on Saturday.

Tomorrow it’s to buy some annuals

to fill in for when the tulips die

and also some for the back gardens.

Next time, hopefully pictures of the art piece

that I have been working on this past week.

Lots of foundation piecing.

Hopefully makes for sharp points and nice rounded curves.
