My buddy decided to come along for the walk and inspect the premises.
Mostly everything is a dull brown right now but there were a couple signs of things to come.
Buds starting to green up and shockingly,
the noses of tulips pushing through the muddy soil.
I was pleased to see that my burlap tent managed to stay intact all winter long protecting my rhododendron.
So if you were wondering, clothespins will hold up in 80km winter winds.
There are a half dozen mature white birches on our property and every year since we have lived here our first chore of the spring season has been tree cleanup.
Numerous branches are shed throughout the winter storm season and must be removed before the grass gets cut. It seems like a simple task but some years it has taken me several days to get it all done.
Luckily it wasn't too bad this year. I managed to clear the whole yard in just one day. Now what's next?
