Friday’s Ramblings ~ I’m pretty sure it’s Friday, no?!

The days seem to blur into one another when you are suddenly the only one in the office doing the work of what two people did before. I’m pretty sure it’s Friday.

We woke up to snow on the valley floor this morning. You’d think after 29 years of living in Northern Nevada that I’d get used to spring-time in Nevada. But I’m really getting tired of snow dumping on my blooming flowers and trees.

Am hoping that the Weeping Cherry made it through all the rain last night and snow this morning.

Still playing in the front yard ~ Here’s what the front corner looked like it all the stages since last summer thru last weekend.

Next was getting rid of a cedar type of shurb to make room for 3 Blueberry bushes, 1 Elderberry bush and a place for an herb garden.

I also planted the LEMON QUEEN SUNFLOWER SEEDS in the corner and against the fence.

The pelican? It’s cut from some heavy metal…I found it at a local yard sale earlier in March. A guy had about 4 of them that he made for some local business that decided not to take them after all. I love pelicans so I got one for $5.

Our Canada Goose Mama is back…she makes her nest outside of our building, on the second floor…on a ledge! Every year…same place. Every year we take the babies down to the court yard when they’re big enough.

While walking into work yesterday morning there was this plant…am thinking it’s some sort of holly. Very pretty yellow flowers. UPDATE ~ Maybe it’s a Mahonia.

Holly of some sort??

And a parting shot of some of the quail that come to feed in my yard ~

    Yes, it’s Friday! We have a holly bush in our yard, but I’ve never seen blooms on it, just the berries.

    Friday it IS. Indeed. And soon it will be time for you to go home, relax, and play in the dirt. You have done wonders to your yard. Night and Day. Can’t wait to see all your new stuff in bloom.

    We are starting our planting too, but are weary of the weather changes we could still get lol :(.

    Our gardening problem aren’t junipers, but whomever decided to put *rocks* in the garden beds, then cover it up with dirt. You dig a bit down and *bam*, hit rocks. Lots of rocks. Lots and *lots* of rocks. It is *so* frustrating! No mind, we are planting sunflowers and a Rose of Sharon and lots of other stuff, one way or the other!

    Enjoy your day sweetie!
