a lovely lovely day ...

up early, off to check out a garage sale

into town - library, drug store, grocery store, county store, canadian tire ...

back - into the garden: the garlic looks FABULOUS already; tidied up some old growth and started thinking about what would go where- found some wild strawberries in one bed - going to take that as a major hint and plant some strawberries right there ;)

put together mantis tiller (christmas gift from dad and jean- thanks pops!)
Big T took the atv to get gas for the tiller and I went to meet him so we could walk the gang at the farm

Sampson is discovering his inner water dog - even if it means wallowing in muck!

lovely lovely walk - past pond, through woods, up and around - just beautiful out - the wind is cool but the sun is glorious!!

we went way deep into our woods and found TONS of wood waiting to be cut - it's beautiful hardwood, fallen so it's up off the ground and drying while it waits for us to cut it ...

temptation ...

it is so tempting to get into the garden right now
the weather is heavenly - over 20 degrees and you can watch the weeds growing

just amazing

but April is historically pretty cold and wet so investing time in fine work or planting now could back fire very badly

the garlic is loving it though :)
