In the Garden




               Hello everyone,

       We have been busy in the garden lately
but always enjoy the beauty of my
   surroundings and all the activity and
         song from the many birds in our garden.

It is such a beautiful time of
the year !


                                                                               
  I love peony tulips as they make quite
a statement in the spring garden.


     Our Boathouse in the background.










The forget me nots are filling in
the space between the daffodils
and tulips.


We had a lot of drizzle yesterday
but in the evening the sun popped
out for a bit as well giving us a
beautiful rainbow.


          The garden is filling in nicely and
              we have spread  compost over many
of the beds.

Fritillaria Meleagris or
Snakehead Fritillary makes
    a nice statement in the garden.


It is still early days in our garden but
soon it will be lilac season here.

                                                      It is a beautiful sunny day here today
                                                                 so you will find me in the garden!

                                                                                Enjoy your day!

                                                                                            Carolyn

Spring in the Boathouse Conservatory




After a couple of beautiful summery days
we went back to a cold windy spring day
here todaybut no matter because it was
   lovely here in the Boathouse conservatory.


The Conservatory is facing south
           and at the back of our little Boathouse.



It is a good place to enjoy tea
and some journal writing.

Violas in a basket.


This coming week I will start hardening
these plants off so they can stay outdoors
soon but for now I am enjoying them here.





                                                                         


I hope you enjoyed visiting in the  conservatory
today. I am amazed how how the garden popped
this week so I will have to take you on a little
garden tour soon. 

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend
and thank you for visiting me!
