Good Friday

Happy Easter Everyone.  It is Good Friday and here at the Sandbox it really is just the most perfect day.  It is warm and sunny.   I may get a little colour on the skin today.   I have been out in the garden doing a little cutting back of all the plants I left standing over the winter with seed heads.  The ornamental grasses had gotten a trim.   Frankly, the whole garden looks rather flat now.  But it won't last long.

Looks a little barren right now.  Hubby and I were out raking the vegetable garden this morning.  Hope we have better luck than last year.  We had a very poor showing of tomatoes as it was a very wet and somber  weather last summer. 

The Helleborus Niger is opening its petals more now.

I found these two in the front yard.  I hope that it is a Good Friday for you too.   I  must add Happy Spring.

Happy Spring, and Happy Easter to you, as well. It won't be long before your gardens are teeming with colour again. :)
Have been out in my garden today, the oranmental grasses all cut back. What a job, you almost need a saw for some of them. Happy Easter:)

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
