I like Thursdays, April 4, 2019

It's hard for me to imagine it's already April!  Happy Thursday and another day of positive posts.

I love spring!  The daffodils and lungwort are blooming!

It's my favorite time of year and that means more physical work in the garden but it is always worthwhile.  We've had a lot of sunny days lately and even when it's brisk out, I enjoy strolling through the garden to assess the leaves budding on bushes and the plants surfacing in the garden!

It was fun to see this pair of mallards enjoying the sun at my neighbor's pond!

I like alstromeria and picked up this bunch at the grocery store.  These soft colors of pink and white really appeal to me right now.

I'm fortunate that I live in an area where I can get three different PBS channels.  This week I'm really enjoying "Call the Midwives" and "Mrs. Wilson."  I'm reading Monty Don's book "Down To Earth" and enjoying that too.

These days Scout is so overgrown!  She had an ear infection a few weeks ago and because of the medicine she was given, we have to wait to get her spring grooming.  Her top hair is so long, she has a middle part and with the few locks standing on end, she looks like Alfalfa from Little Rascals.  

It's going to be a beautiful day today and I'm going to get a move on so that we can garden early!

Have a great week!

yep the ear infection meds kept us from grooming too. Alfalfa! ha!
I taped call the midwife and the other one is new to me, taped it to watch later with DH who likes them too.

Hope Scout's ear is feeling better! Such pretty flowers. Impatiently waiting over here to have a day off and warm sunny weather at the same time to work in our flower garden areas. Hope you have a wonderful Thursday!

Our PBS Station comes and goes...depends on the weather. I miss Call the Midwives, but it came on so I could watch Mrs. Wilson (so good!) Love the flowers.

What a wonderful uplifting tone to this post, Michele. How wonderful to have blooms in your garden and everything so green.
I love Call the Midwives but have never seen Mrs. Wilson. One to note!
Scout is so adorable, long locks and all.

Oh, daffodils! Mine are budding, but aren't blooming yet. Yours are pretty. Scout is so fuzzy looking! lol Hope that ear is doing better.

I love daffodils - yours are so pretty! I keep thinking mine will be blooming any day now, but they are taking their time this year. We love Call the Midwife - so glad to see it come on again!
