Things are looking up,
and looking nice.
I like walking by and seeing
all the new anemones this year.
We gave the house a lick and a promise before Emily went to work,
and Laura and I dispensed with plenty of dandelions.
When we could stand it no more, we went to see what is in the nursery now, beside pansies.
And look who we found, deadheading pansies.
Check the boots!
Another job our working woman has is to make this front walk look attractive in the morning,
and cover the plants over at night.
It's still too early for anything, but we did scrounge two plants for the lettuce tower.
Nasturtium and creeping jenny.
Come back next week.
We're down to two bird feeders, and hung the two bird baths.
Next week I'll stop at a pet store and buy a box of gravel to put in one of them.
Let's see if I can keep them out of the road.
American goldfinches above,
and a male and female purple finch, sharing with a cardinal.
Now the bigger birds have thinned out the cardinals use the hanging safflower feeder.
My flying pigs!
The pig got a nasturtium.
And I brought home some color for the front porch,
Even if I have to cover it at night.
