Ducks in a Row...

It feels like Spring will soon arrive in these parts. Working around the yard pruning and general clean up is in full swing. The beds in the garden have seaweed on them, the Blueberries have had coffee grounds, Fir needles, worm castings and seaweed to top them off they will be very happy this year. 


Working on the upper Garden. The beds with leaves are planted with Garlic last fall and my favorite spot for seaweed.


Ducks in a row, books keeping me company, snow drops and  crocus are the first to show


Encrusted stump, fresh clean seaweed and the view looking East


Cedar kindling from beach log drying a little in my man cave, making and repairing cat scratch posts. The one on the right is a big hit with the kids!

Here is wishing everyone a Happy Valentines Day!

Personal Development

There are seasons of the year and seasons of life... 

I notice a lot of my fellow bloggers are talking about getting older and the challenges they are facing. This last year I have been finding that I have been at odds with myself, dealing with thoughts of life passing me by.

Working on being as healthy as possible with food and supplements has given me a focus. Mentally learning what I can do with a positive happy attitude is making a real difference. Feeling sorry for yourself is one of the worst things people do to themselves and the first to change for a better life. 


Around the yard Holly, The blueberries have been fed coffee grounds, worm castings, seaweed it will be a good year. Buddy hanging out gets grooming on Tuesday yeah! The gutters are cleaned and there is a reroof happening in the spring.
          
Some shots from northern BC, those are wild blueberries


The firepit, Taz, summer flowers, frosty heavenly bamboo, a old coal heater and I noticed that things are getting foggy.


Summer flowers and a wagon - I love old wheels.

I hope this post put a smile on your face.

Have a Happy Day!

Stormy weather = taking the time to work on my office space...

When the weather is nice I want to do outside stuff but when wind is blowing and the rain is coming sideways it is time to work on my space. Around these parts this weather is called a "South Easter"


Dad's Highboy drawer/door pull details and my favourite motto, it sums up how Dad lived his life. 


Family Rockers circa 1910 and setting up my new work space


Buddy, Heavenly Bamboo and a Maple 



 Summer flowers and a young bunny


Summer flowers and a tasty fruit flan.

I hope this post brings a smile to your face. 
Be Happy!

Lost in Thought...

I have been busy with fall things, working on yard and garden thinking of the next season. Gathering leaves for mulch is one thing I do each year and each year I have a neighbor who lets me have his leaves. He has 7 big leaf maples in a clump, I call them the seven sisters, usually half of my leaves come from these. Working on the garden is a good release of stress and a way for me to gather my thoughts.

A sunrise on my way to pick up Dad's Chest of Drawers. Fall colors

The kids and a Pileated came to visit

A baby bunny, a maple in all it's glory, a cool pair of boots and gathering leaves.

Planting some Garlic, Buddy has a hair cut, nice scarf, he has quite a collection. There is a lot of seed on the Maples and the Oak in my Memorial Garden.

This collage reminds me of my Mom and Dad. I miss them.

Pookie and a trip to the beach


Thanks for visiting.
