I don't know about you but keeping up with everything at this time of year is getting increasingly difficult as I age.
I'll be taking a little blog brake just to get things done around the house and outdoors. So I may not be leaving comments on your blogs for a little while. Nothing personal... just making some time for moi.

Here is what my yard looked like today before the lawn was cut. I was busy pulling dandelions on the lawn as part of dandelion control but I didn't get them all. I had to rush and take pictures when I had the chance otherwise it wouldn't get done... I cut the lawn and went to work at the farm.

 As you can see, my white daffodils are doing well this year and spring flowering plants have started to bloom.

 Not as many tulips as the last couple of years. I may plant some new bulbs in the Fall if things works out right. I suspect the squirrels have dug up many of them.  We have now trapped over 20 squirrels so far but we still see one around.

There were a lot of dandelions all along this path and I picked about half a wheelbarrow. It's been very sunny today so the colors are washed out.

The Peonies are starting to bud and the Hostas are developing well.

One of my  Azaleas is just ready to bloom. ( This picture is for you Carla) Sorry they are not all in full bloom yet.

My ground phlox are not as abundant this year as they really had a hard winter. Lots of Creeping Charlie weeds on my lawn.

More spring flowers.

This part of the lawn was cut as well as the front.

Finally my big rock garden.

I hope to be back soon. Thanks for all the visits and the comments you have so kindly left on my blog.  Stay safe everyone and I hope to see you back here soon.
