We enjoyed an hour or so of sun this past weekend and we soaked it up! The rain this spring is incredible. We've not yet removed the sod due to the moisture, but we did finish our fence. We fenced all 280' with sections of fencing left from the prior owners. Amazing! We attached chicken wire along the bottom of the fence to help keep hungry four legged critters out. Jennifer watched Groundhog emerge from his whole north of the garden and skittle quickly along the edge and around the corner to head for the compost pile. Let's hope this keeps up. Two fence gates are on the agenda for this upcoming forecasted rainy weekend.
The bluebirds aren't super fans of our garden work since their box is so close (it's just outside the fence in the above pic), but they tolerate us and are currently incubating 5 eggs.
Slowly but surely we are digging in flagstone we unearthed from our back door area. The house shades much of this area so we are planting woodland shrubs, flowers and ferns. Hopefully next year this time there won't be near so much mud.
Relaxation is always built in at some point of our day! The calling wood thrushes and gray treefrog made this time perfect. More soon....
