This is a corner of our neighbour's garden.
I love this view. Quite often when I'm out around the yard - usually
chasing after Marshall - I stop and look through this spot up to the hill
and field that goes back of our properties.
This photo was taken late afternoon in the early fall. The field grass is long,
the rudbekia is in bloom, the air is hazy.
This photo was taken last September 1. The field is mowed
behind the fence now. It looks so green and lush even
near the end of the season.
First snow - 2008 - looks so pretty and soft until the grasses are
flattened under the weight of many snowfalls.
Spring - last week. The flowers, grass and trees are dormant.
But soon it will be green and colourful again. That snow is gone now.
And so is my neighbour.
Gardening season is coming.
And so is mowing season!
Lots of work to do.
Planning and planting.
Are you looking forward to spring?
Or has it already sprung?
It was very cold here last night at -9C but it may go up to +6 this afternoon.
I want to do some yardwork but being bundled in a ski jacket, hat, gloves
and boots to do it makes me feel like it's November not mid-April!
There's a lot of debris from the trees to rake and clean up so
I will get at it. Right now. See you later...
I hope you are enjoying your weekend whatever the weather might be.
