Saturday was spent spring carpet cleaning.

And yesterday….
…well yesterday Boucle and I did garden work….
…raked all the leaves from the back garden beds……
…we hung laundry……
…unwrapped the garden furniture……..

And Boucle sat under the umbrella for the first time since last autumn……..

A glorious spring afternoon………

…a sunny afternoon…….a man and two dogs…….

Yesterday was gorgeous weather.  Sunny, no wind.  It was about 5C where I was which felt still a bit crisp by the lake, and Boucle and I loved every minute of the day.

I hung laundry at 8AM, it was only 0C.  My fingers were like popsicles.

Had a client meeting in the morning…..and then took some time out of work in the afternoon as sweetie-pie and I went to the Lake.

One of the dogs with this man was a rescue, the one on the leash.  He had had him about 4 months, and the dog was about 4 years old.  He was still a puppy at heart. – wanting to play with Boucle.

The other dog the man was minding for his friend, who joined him later.

The dogs and the man knew how fine a day it was…..basking in the sun…

 

…the mystery of the pink tulips……….

Every fall I need to replant red tulips in the front garden, as there is too much shade there for them to ripen properly and flower a second year.  So the once bloomed red tulip bulbs of the front I dig up and replant into the back garden, where they come up fine.

But a funny thing happens between the front and the back garden.  After two seasons, the back garden tulips slowly turn pink.  These tulips started out red in the front, and have been blooming pink in the back garden for a couple of years.

….pink, once red, tulips…….my garden this morning…………
