We've had two days of sunshine in a row! It's been wonderful, got the lawn cut finally and many things done outside. I've had to cover the potted up annuals each night as there has been a frost warning. That in itself is a job. I counted the planters and pots and have 45 on the go. I was wondering why every year I spent so much on annuals and now I know why. I bought some seed potatoes and have planted them along one side of the larger greenhouse and also in the small greenhouse along with peas and beans. I don't know if this will work out but am going to give it a go.

The Dandelion are around in great numbers. While they are considered a bit of a nusiance, they look so bright and pretty.

I've been mentioning that there's been a Boreal Chick a Dee coming to the feeders every day.....Well, yesterday I saw three at one of the feeders all the same time. What a great surprise. I was thrilled to say the least. They are so very cute and a little bit small than the Black Capped Chick a Dee.

A few pictures of some of the flowers in bloom at the moment.

One of the annuals I bought. A daisy of some sort. This piece broke off so I put it in water and took a picture.

Things are going along much the same as usual. Nothing much of note happening. So, I'm off out in the garden once again.

Good morning OC. Seeing several birds that don't usually visit kind of makes you wonder if there is a food shortage farther north in the forests.

I like the dandelions too until they get that ugly stalk with the seeds.

Gosh 2 days of sunshine... now steady on there - this is getting far too exciting ;)

Over here we know the daises as African Daises and they come in a whole host of colours - wonderful. And Dandelions seem to have had a bumper year over here too; even the road verges have been lined with them and they are so cheery.

Isn't it great to have some colour back again :D
