Celebrate the Small Things: New Growth

Grow box is planted with Spinach and Swiss Chard
A spot for my new rose, a gift from new friend. 

My garden pots are ready.

The ducks are too.

New daffodil starts reaching for the sun

A deer that Mom gave me and I 'dearly' love.
A burst of pink this morning, its big debut.

A showy forsythia in full bloom, the best of all.
The color of spring and new growth are everywhere. Welcome spring. Just 2500 words left to cut in my novel; I wrote eight posts for the April A-Z; and this afternoon I take my first golf lesson. What a lovely week this has been.

Happy Weekend Everyone!

  1. My mom gardened every year when I was growing up. She planted vegetables, watered, and weeded. I helped by eating the fresh veggies! lol Your forsythia is gorgeous! I look forward to more pics of your burgeoning garden. :)

    1. My mother is a gardener and I blame her (in a good way) for my gardening passion.

  2. Sharon, I love Swiss chard! My forsythia has begun blooming yet. I use those same gray blocks in my yard. They're so lovely. Novel work, A-Z stuffs, and I'm more excited hearing you're playing golf!! I love golf, (smile).

    Love the photo of you and husband with airplane!

    1. Ha-ha, You have no idea how much of a beginner I am at golf! My instructor pointed out today something I hadn't thought about. "You can golf your entire life." Although I can still bike, and jog on my treadmill, I like that I'll always have golf.

  3. You're lucky that spring is springing and you have new growth happening. I'm just bedding my garden down for the winter….

    1. Oh, wow, I wonder where you live. I sometimes forget how different the seasons are elsewhere in the world.

    1. Thanks, Birgit. You last A-Z was fabulous. It's been such a mild year here weatherize-wise. Next year, it could be the reverse. Strange weather we're all having, isn't it?

  7. What a productive week you've had! All very satisfying, I'm sure. As for your plants, I love daffodils. I always mean to plant them, and never do. They always make me think of William Wordsworth's poem.

    1. Oh, it really was a good week. Hope all is well on your end and the book is selling well. I always think how lovely your book jacket is. Daffodils do well indoors too. You might give it a try.
