Garden Walk

First set of pictures taken mid March. I thought it would be fun to see how fresh buds and garden growth has started. The last three pictures are from March 20th (two sets made by DGS). Proud Grandma.

On March 20th DGS and I did another garden walk. His pictures are the first two below.

DGS found a primula that I had missed seeing, 
love how he held the grass aside and took a closeup.
Lilac, peony and raspberry leaves and daffodils.

And an especially lovely treat, DGS and DH cleaned out the old plants and overgrown grass, add sea soil and planted peas in the small blueberry bed on Monday 25th. Love those guys, the very best. They put everything away afterward too.

Today (Thursday) I am in for surgery so I've written a few posts ahead. Sharing with Mockingbird Hill Cottage Friday Evening (home recovering now).

Also sharing with Funky Junk Interiors, One More Time, Sunny Simple Life

Spring beginning.


  1. Lovely!
    Wonderful first hints of spring!

  2. I spent 3 hours yesterday outside weeding and prepping flower beds and our shrubs - it was gloriously beautiful in the sunshine and warm temperatures. I even dug out our cushions and set up our outside living room so we could enjoy a cocktail last night outside. Spring on the west coast is lovely! I hope your surgery goes ok - take care.

  3. soon as all my snow is gone , I hope to dig in the dirt

    Oh My surgery, I sure hope it's minor and all is well

  4. I'm ready for some wonderful Spring weather and plants blooming! Hopeyour surgery goes well.
    hugs, Linda

  5. Praying for your surgery - hope all goes well!


  6. Green is my very favorite color - loved this post with all the lovely photos!
    I sure hope surgery went well and you are soon back on your feet and enjoying your garden.

  7. Oh goodness, how I long for GREEN! Thanks so much for your photos, Joy, I can live vicariously through you! I hope your surgery went well and you are recovering nicely.

    Thanks, as always, for joining in this week.


  8. Such nice photos! Thanks for sharing! Happy Easter!

  9. You have done a great job of capturing the joy of spring! Happy Easter to you and yours.

    Big Hugs,
    Susan and Bentley

  10. Hello Joy, lucky you in BC - one of my favorite places in this beautiful world. Your pics are lovely.
    You have a lot of green already, here in North Carolina Spring is late and nothing much is blooming in the garden - daffs were nice but already over, bluebells have lovely leaves shooting up but no ringing bells yet! Today we awoke to heavy rain but now the sun is peeping through so Easter Day is going to be lovely after all I hope - until the thunderstorms predicted for this evening roll in. At least it's warm and we are thankful for this day, and all days.

    I see you are recovering from surgery - hope you will be fit as a fiddle very soon.

    Happy Easter -
    Hugs - Mary

  11. Spring is wonderful ... a new life. You photos are so enjoyable ... even an unopened flower. Thanks for sharing, Hope you are feeling great.

  12. We are just beginning to see little bursts of green, and have just had our first few warm days (even a comfortable-not freezing morning today)! I think spring might finally be arriving afterall! Visiting from Sunny Simple Sundays!


Thanks for visiting. I read and appreciate all your comments. Joy
