Spring Has Finally Sprung!

Upon returning home from a lovely Mother's Day weekend in Jasper, our yard was FINALLY clear of snow. And with nothing but beautiful weather since (aside from a light rain), I'm convinced that Spring has finally sprung! I no longer live in fear of another least not until next Fall.

With the advent of sunshine and warmer days, I pushed myself to get into the garden and start weeding. After a few back-ache inducing days, (it's much more difficult to be hunched over while 31 weeks pregnant!) I managed to get things ready for planting.

Yesterday, Emily and I visited our local greenhouse for our first installment of flowers, and also managed to get a few seeds planted into the ground before the light showers arrived. This morning, Emily was convinced that the radishes and sunflowers that she planted yesterday afternoon would be growing already. I told her that we could check early next week, and with any luck we'll see something then. She's very excited, as this year I've given her her own large section of my garden space. Today, we're getting started planting up planters and hanging baskets.

I've also managed to fit in some scrapbooking. Here's a look at my newest layouts.  I apologize for the poor quality of the photos - my house has very patchy sun shining in right now.

Until next time...
