Last week, we also had some lovely weather, so dad and hubby were busy working in the yard to do the spring cleaning. I think this is the earliest we've (read they) have ever done it, but the yard and garden all look pretty now, and we just have to wait for Mother Nature to do her thing with the spring sunshine... though I know in our yard becuase of the way it faces, things take longer to peek out of the ground.
Speaking of doing things early, my lily of the valley are growing like weeds already! At this rate, I just may have some blooms to actually take out to mom on Mother's day, which will be a nice surprise, as normally this isn't the case. I always take some out to her grave after the fact, since they tend to bloom after Mother's day has passed.
I also plan on doing some spring cleaning of my own, but more of the stitching and reading kind. I have way too many books, and way too much stash, so keep watching this space for the results of my purging. Oh, still no sign of my fabric so still no start date for our Sunday SAL for the four girls with Barbi on Sundays... hopefully soon. They did say it was to be mailed this week, but who knows... till then I'll just keep working on other stitching stuff.
After all that lovely weather that we couldn't believe we had, just as a little wake up call, Mother Nature reminded us that after all we do live in Canada, and what else can we expect this time of year but snow...
Saturday evening we had ourselves a spring snow blizzard! To the point that the snow actually stuck to the grass. The one good thing though is that it didn't last, and by Sunday the snow was all melted and faded away like a memory!
