Up bright and early, got housework done, then out in the garden. I hauled all the pots and garden statues out of the larger greenhouse and added manure and new soil to the existing soil. Then put a raised bed in the front where there's lots of sun, filled that with soil for spinach, lettuce, chard, etc. I think I'm going to have to add an extension as it doesn't look like it will be big enough. So, then I put up some trellis's on the side of the house and dug up a climbing plant from another part of the garden, put that beneath the trellis's and tied on the branches. Cut back some of the plants in other beds and raked up a wheelbarrow full of bits and pieces. Came in and got lunch so I'm taking a bit of a break at the moment.
I took these pictures of a bird this morning. I think it's a male Purple Finch. So pretty.
The stream if free of ice and snow and running again, although there is still snow in the woods. I was so lovely standing besides it and listening to the water running.
