Daffodils are blooming.
The rhubarb is up.
The first rainbow of the season.
The first weekend of May is about over and it's actually starting to feel more like spring every day. We got a fair amount of yard work accomplished on Friday and Saturday as the weather was quite nice for a change. Not hot, mind you, but nice enough, considering there was snow in parts of Alberta. I heard the spring peepers (frogs) in the nearby pond last night so that means the ice is gone. There were mosquitoes out yesterday and I even heard a bumble bee buzzing around.
The grass is greening pretty fast and there are a few plants in the gardens starting to show signs of life. We did a lot of raking of debris from the lawns and bagged some and burned some. The brush pile is gone now too. I love having a fire pit to get rid of some of that debris rather than putting it all to the roadside pickup. We still have some bags that have to go out but not as many as usual.
Saturday morning I attend the ladies breakfast at our church. It was attended by about 90 ladies and we had a wonderful time of fellowship. A chef and his wife prepared the food for us and it was so delicious!
a lovely fruit platter
The tables were decorated with teapots, doilies, vintage hankies and pearls as well as 2 bouquets of white tulips. They were so pretty. One person from each table, with their birthday the closest to that date, got to take home the bouquet of tulips.
Today, Sunday, is our son's birthday. He and his fiancé will be coming over this evening for a visit. We hope to celebrate with a family birthday supper next weekend.
I hope you had a lovely weekend and that the week ahead will be wonderfully blessed.
Thank you for your visits and kind comments! I appreciate each one of you.
