It was a great Easter weekend , Started out with my surprise birthday party on Friday , posted photos of it yesterday , seeing my family and spending time with them to a nice day Saturday at home puttering to lovely weather yesterday and being outside cleaning up the yard and gardens to a lovely supper for Easter at my in laws .
Papa and I were busy out side as the sun was shining , not a cloud in the sky and the temps hit 15C or 60F in the shade and 20C or 70F in the sun it was awesome .
Papa was busy cleaning up his shop and putting up some of his newer bird houses he built and cutting up scrap pieces of wood for me , whilst I got the camp fire going and cleaned out the butterfly garden from the winter protection of leaves as insulation and then burlap over top . When I took it all off of the garden I saw lots of new shoots growing from the plants so that was good they had their first year of over winter protection and are now good to go !
Papa also made a new hanger for his tool shed to hang the leaf blower up so it is accessible and easy to get to !
The wood shop doesn't have heat as of yet so Papa cant spend any time out in it in the cold weather , so yesterday he was soo happy to get back into it and get going and I love hearing him in there all happy .
One of the new bird houses he built and the next one is an older one the prototype from last year which the birds nested in all summer and are now checking it out again lol . Papa put that one on our garden sign .
I was busy cleaning out the butterfly garden, ok and taking photos lol !
And of course our number one supervisor was there as well lol !
And she was also supervising Papa in his shop !
I put out my bird bath fountain and after I took the photos the birds crowded around it bathing and drinking !
Had a nice camp fire going .
And enjoyed the day .Then had a lovely Easter supper at the in laws visited for a bit there then came home , they just live next door lol and sat outside on the porch after supper as the sun set and the night clouds rolled in listening to the Robins and the peepers.
Over night we had thunderstorms and lots of rain and today is cooler with winds and cloudy sky's the odd pop of sunshine and rain on and off .
It was a great weekend !
Until next time .
