Spring is continuing to bounce along. I'm getting antsy to get working in the garden, and I even cleaned out one of the flower beds because this warm weather has my nemesis Creeping Charlie creeping in earlier than ever. The grass is needing to be cut already, but I'm waiting for my new lawnmower to arrive. I'm excited about it because it's motorless - an "old fashioned" reel mower. No gas, no noise. Just the beautiful fresh-cut-grass smell, and me getting some exercise.

I'm planning the vegetable garden: the usual suspects of tomatoes, onions, peppers, cukes, dill and some newcomers like potatoes, and different herbs. The baby blueberry bushes are enjoying the warm weather and all four of them are greening up nicely. I have to figure out a way to protect them from the hungry bunnies!

I'm also planning some additions to the front yard flower beds, filling in and adding some new colors.
