Another Spring!

Can't believe it's been so long since I posted!  What can I say?  I've taken on quite a few volunteer roles this year and they do keep me busy.  But I love it...wouldn't want to be bored!
But things are wrapping up and the garden is waking up and I'm so excited.  I love spring!  And this year spring has come so early!  I estimate that the garden is about a month ahead of schedule.  Of course, crazy Calgary... it was snowing last week, but yesterday we had record breaking heat!  It was 26!  And we have our first blooms!  And the rhubarb is up!  I'm very excited!


Of course, the garden is only just waking up.  But the kids are having a blast.  It's been so warm I am tempted to treat myself and get a few annuals to brighten things up.  Even if it gets cold again it'll be worth it.  I'll only get cold tolerant ones like pansies or snapdragons.  I'll let you know how it goes.

Time for the compost!  And I have a project going on in the front yard...more in the next post (I hope).
