It has been a tough few weeks for my family as my sister was in hospital fighting for her life , sadly she lost the fight and passed last Saturday , it has been a shock for us all as she was still very young and had just turned 62 on the Friday and passed the next day Saturday evening . No one had a clue or knew she had these aneurysms in her brain as there was no symptoms at all . I would like to thank you all for your kind heart felt words and prayers for our family it all really helped us through this difficult time . My sister Ann wishes for us to celebrate her life and plant a tree or two as a memorial in her name so we will be doing that soon . My sister would want us to carry on so I am trying to do that , I even slowed down on my photography these past few weeks but my sister loved flowers , gardening , birds and nature as I do and had said she loved my photos as she would see them on my face book page and clicked liked or commented on them every time I posted them .
I have been outside busy in my gardens for quite some time readying them for more perennials and pulling weeds ,I find gardening very therapeutic as is photography and nature so I got my camera and started taking more photos again .
All the blossom's are out in full force , Lilacs are blooming bit by bit and my garden plants and flowers have all come alive as the weather has been sunny and warm .
The bees have been busy collecting pollen on the blooms and blossoms as the odd butterfly flitters by picking and choosing where to land , birds and critters have all been busy feasting at the feeders and nesting , the yard has been busy and I am loving it .
These two were dancing about sizing each other up and fighting for territory .
Miggs and I have been taking long walks in the mornings and she chasing squirrels on and off all day so she takes lots of naps in the warm sunshine in her favorite spot by one of the gardens.
A few clouds to the north but the sky's over us and to the south, east and west have been so clear and so blue with lots of sunshine .
I didn't plant these at all they came from one of my planters that I dumped into the garden last fall . I like these Pansies they are so hardy and pretty and they spread like mad . I am loving all the blooms that are popping up and out now and the birds are all back and keeping me entertained lol !
This weekend is a long weekend for us here in Ontario and the weekend where all of us gardeners go plant shopping at our favorite garden centers like myself , oh I cant wait, I love our big garden center they have a cute little shop with in the center to . Yeah plant shopping then plant them all and enjoy . So a busy yet fun weekend is ahead for us .
Until next time .
