Patiently Waiting


For the weather to get better to start planting . The  temps during the nights and early mornings have been cold but the days have been sunny and warmer but still to early for planting anything in my gardens . I am getting the garden itch though dyeing to get down and garden dirty lol. I still have a bit more of garden clean up to do .

       Whilst I have been patiently waiting I have been taking photos of what already is growing in and a round the gardens and yard and of the birds who have been entertaining me every day !

                So as you see things here are slowing growing and almost there  . I just need to  be a little more patient a bit longer to get in my gardens and plant  but in the mean time I will enjoy natures beauty in everything growing and developing all a new   and all the birdies that come and go as the season warms up !

                             Like Mum always said , Good things are worth waiting for and ya can hurry a good thing !

                                                                      Until next time my friends !

I'm itching to get started too,but the weather isn't warming up fast enough for me. I'll have to make do with lots of raking instead,this weekend..but it's better than snow shoveling!

You can tell it will be time soon.
Have a happy day!

Primitive Stars said...

Me too, but would you believe we had snow over night. Come on a Mother Nature, it's the 25 of April.... Always love to see your pictures, Blessings Francine.

TexWisGirl said...

hooray for new growth and birds!

Pamela Gordon said...

Wow, your trees are in bud already! Ours are barely swelling yet. We are so far behind this year. Oh well, it will come eventually. We are getting a break from the rain today with a few sunny breaks then more rain and not even warm. I've never seen a possum in the wild. Have a great weekend!

Hi there, just catching up! Lovely to see all of your plants coming into life and to see Miggs with her new look as well! Hope that you have a good weekend. xx

William Kendall said...

Beautiful shots!

We've been seeing rabbits and groundhogs out and about lately.

Another great series of photos! I was noticing today how the weeds have popped up this week, so I need to get outside too! Someone also mentioned that they have seen a couple of hummingbirds--I can't believe it's time for them too already, it still seems a bit too cold.

Very pretty photos around your garden, all great signs of warmer things to come :) Cute animals, especially Miggy of course ;)

Chel C said...

So many gorgeous springy things here and it is lovely to see Miggs without snow now!! Our lilac is now in full bloom and some flowers are dotted around the rooms. I also have the planting out bug but am holding on for next weekend when there should be no frosts. Have a wonderful weekend xx

Don't you just love the re-birth of spring! I keep inspecting our gardens too, and we are way behind!

Your photos are beautiful & I love the one of your pup, Miggs!

I'm patiently waiting too. I did plant a row of peas yesterday just to get my fingers in the dirt :)
