Good Morning My Friends!
How are you? How was your weekend? Mine was lovely - I met up with Dee on Saturday morning for coffee and knitting and chatting. Always a good time. The weekend provided opportunity for walking, knitting, stitching, napping, reading, even a little TV watching (me!!) with Fletch.
This is the state of our back yard currently. You can see my archery target at the edge of the woods (the plywood backdrop is a godsend so that my wayward arrows don't go into the woods...though I've been known to shoot too high and they go over the backdrop). The wild cherries are blooming in the woods. Our thistle feeder is hanging in the apple tree and there have been plenty of purple finches feeding. Yesterday morning I saw the first goldfinch at the feeder! The camper birdhouse has residents as does the terracotta house hanging at the back. Fun to watch all the activity. Of course, Mabel loves climbing into the tree, so the birds had best pay attention.
Our redbud may be at peak right now. It is gorgeous!
And our apple tree is quickly becoming loaded with blooms. It is so nice to sit out on the patio at the end of the day and see the blooms and watch the birds.
Sunday I headed out to the canal path for a walk. I didn't go too far as my back was bothering me and I did not see any blue herons, but there were plenty of turtles!!
And even some baby geese!
Walking back along the path, I saw two kayaks coming towards me. There was a dog in one of them!
It felt good to get out, but I was disappointed in how sore my back was. It feels ok this morning and I may try to get another walk in. Right now I have one load of wash drying and another load to get in the washer (once Fletch gets out of bed, the sheets will come off and go into the washer). It looks a little bit overcast, so I think I'll just use the dryer today. Yesterday I did two loads of laundry (clothes) and everything dried on the lines outside. I love being able to do that.
Here's hoping everyone's week is off to a great start!
