It’s windy, cloudy, and my left sinus is killing me so I thought I’d just post a few photos I took over the weekend.
It’s been pretty busy here at work this week (and every week since my coworker moved to a different department and left me to run the office on my own!)…
I wanted so much to call in sick and just lay in bed, wrapped up in my quilts, listening to the rain. But here I am…the ever reliable Michelle…patooey.
No big plans for the weekend…there are a couple of auctions, a book sale put on by the Friends of the Library (5205 Mill St. Reno, NV), yard work (still pulling up part of the front side lawn to put in another garden!), quilting…and I’m going to bake some goodies for the next-door department for helping out so much since I’ve been on my own.
The garden is growing nicely…at least what I’ve planted so far. Broccoli, Cabbage, Brussels Sprouts, White Radishes, Radishes, Carrots, Red & Yellow Onions, Garlic, and Heriloom Beets. I’m still wondering if the Horseradish will be making it’s appearance soon. May 16th is the UNCE Master Gardener Plant Sale! Woo HOO!
Some pictures of a few flowers out in the front yard this morning.
Sensation Lilac is Blooming! Lookie at the varigated flowers…white and purple.
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.
And a parting shot of some of the quail that come to feed in my yard ~
