Frosty Morning

 

The temp dropped last night and we woke to frost ! I looked out my front door and noticed my Daffodils had drooped . So I took a photo through my screen door !

                                      Then I decided to go out and take photos !

                I do like the look of frost on everything , especially in photos !

DSC_5474

                        I love the way the frost twinkles like stars in the sun light !

                      Poor Daffodil was being held up by a twig ! They don't look so good !

                                 Miggy was having a ball whilst I was taking photos !

                      My  Lilac bush trying to bloom but the frost is holding it back !

We are to be having cold weather for the next few nights , all the summer type weather we had last week had forced  things to bloom and start to grow way to early and now I fear this cold snap will kill them all! I hope not !

The sun is shining and it is warming up the land . Miggy and I are going to go for our morning walk . I have house cleaning to do then I will be able to enjoy the rest of our day !

                        Until next time hope you all have a good day ! Open-mouthed smile

Holly Molly It’s Cold !!!!!

 

By late afternoon yesterday the weather changed from chilly gloomy to warm and sunny  that was good. I was able to open the windows  and have them open all night , well  HOLLY MOLLY  did the temps ever drop during the night , I woke up this morning freezing . I quickly got out of bed BRRRR !! closed all the windows and cranked the furnace on . Boy oh boy that wakes you up quick !!! I checked the temp it was down to -1°C or 29°F the wind is making  it feel even colder ! Mother Nature is on the rampage again !   Hope my spring flowers will be ok in this cold snap . Watching all the birds puffed up with their feet tucked up under them looking cold , I feel as though I should knit them some woolly socks  poor little guys !

                           Even the Bunny’s and Squirrel's look cold this morning !

DSC_0013

                           Even Miggy looks cold  but she likes it !

DSC_5104

          At least the sun is out . I hope it warms up through out the day ! Strange weather once again  going from mild winter temps to  summer temps to winter temps again !

                                          Hey where did Spring temps go ?

                                   Until next time hope you all have a good day !

Another Rainy Day

 

The weekend so far has been rainy and chilly and Papa and I have been just puttering around in our jammie’s , well jammie bottoms and  old sweat shirts  soo comfy though !I watched a movie and played around with my camera taking photos of table top decor ! I take photos of nature mostly and we all know I take tons of photos of Miggy as she is my best subject but I don't take many photos like these !

DSC_5427

                                              This is our coffee table in the living room !

Today is my B-day Papa gave me a lovely card and is working on my gift a bit at a time in his workshop , I cant wait till its done  Papa and I are just having another  puttering day today since the weather isn't that great out but we need the rains !

What Is This ?

 

Yesterday was another beautiful day all though it was much cooler then it has been. The wind picked up last night  the temps dropped  and we had a full night of gentle rain that we so badly needed , now the grass is such a rich deep green and has thickened  up ! It is gloomy and cold out there today and rain on and off is to be expected  , the kind of day  to watch movies , read blogs or a book !

I was roaming  around the yard and the field beside us yesterday looking for different things to photograph and found this little guy !

DSC_5451

I have no idea what it is all I know is I liked it so much Papa dug it up and I put it in my garden . I think it is a domestic plant cause it has bulbs for roots  . I don't think wild plants start from bulbs !

DSC_5452

                        If anyone  knows who this pretty little plant  is I sure would like to know !

DSC_5445

My Daffodils at the end of our drive way have opened . I love these two toned ones. Behind them are my Tiger Lilies growing like crazy !

DSC_5458                And of course we all know who this pretty girl is ! Our sunshine , Miggy !

                      Until next time hope you all have a good day !

Miggy and I went for our walk in the morning then I cleaned my windows yesterday  moved some Tiger Lilies to a new home and sat and read my book on the porch with my buddy Miggy at my feet enjoying the rest of the day  !   We are to get some well needed rain  tomorrow so it will be a day for Papa to be in his wood shop and I well who knows lol !

Another Beautiful Day

 

It is 4:45 pm and it is still beautiful out it is 25°C or 77°F and  sunny ! Miggy and I went for our walk this morning . Then I started getting my hands dirty in my gardens . I did some weeding as they are always the first thing in the garden to show up , and turned the dirt over to help air it all out with one of my fav little garden tools the original claw . This tool is like a mini  rototiller and I can take some of the claws off to get in the tight areas !

DSC_5402

My other fav garden tool is this little rake  it works wonders for getting the leftover winter junk off your gardens ! I did the garden around our Birch tree the garden in the back and the center garden !
