There is a magnificent Hawthorn tree in full bloom across the street from me.
I’ve just consulted the thermometer, and it says it’s 22 degrees, but I don’t believe it.
With gardens, there’s always something to worry about — except the tough and pretty pansies.
It is simply wonderful at any time, but especially at this time of year.
Tomatoes are possibly the most popular vegetable (fruit) we plant.
All you folks from the old country will be murmuring, “Oh, to be in England now that April’s here.”
April 1 is one of my favourite days of the year, right up there with Christmas and Halloween.
It is definitely spring (although the breeze is still on the chilly side) and the thermometer says it’s a scant eight degrees Celsius.
Do you remember the saying, “If at first you don’t succeed, try — try again”?
Things begin to get exciting this month. Spring is definitely in the air. There isn’t a single cloud to be seen.
This is a particularly lovely time of year. Many of the flowering trees are in full bloom.
Let’s talk for a moment about planting peas, please.
I’m putting half my seed in a bowl of water to soak overnight, to get them off to an early start.
I find this exciting ... the first seeds planted this spring! The start of something wonderful!
I have some interesting news for gardeners provided by Linda Gilkeson, a very knowledgeable gardener and speaker.
Almost the end of the bleakest month of the year but it hasn’t been a bad month as winter months go.
In a moment of weakness I bought a small package of something with a terrible last name.
Well, here we go again! Another year, another beginning and we wonder what this New Year will bring.
We were parked in downtown Sidney, still sitting in the car discussing the things we had to do before heading home.
I’m actually writing this on December 1 but I’m trying to get a little bit ahead as there is always so much to do at this time of year.
