The sun has finally risen !!


Happy Weekend Friends !!

Hope you are enjoying your weekend so far

The sun has finally decided to make an appearance

as well as bring with her a comfortable temperature



I can actually go outside without a heavy coat on


Spent the past couple of days getting a swap out

as well as in the freezing cold

and rain pulling dandelions


Two years ago the city passed a by-law

that prohibited pesticides,

so I guess the dandelions spread the word

that they were free to spread their seeds




The neighbourhood

usually full of beautiful green carpets

is covered in yellow and now white puffballs

I personally cannot stand that look

and have gotten down

and taken them out - one by one


It has taken many many days,

but I finally see the light

or should I say 'the green'


The green carpet has returned and it looks fabulous



I know it takes constant vigilance, but it is so worth it


Now to spend some time outside and try to get a bit

of color on these chicken skin legs so I can wear a skirt


What fun adventures
have you
been up to this weekend

  3. It has been a long winter, even in California. Upside, the rain has everything flourishing, so my weekend like yours involves weeding! It feels so good to be out in the garden.

  10. Oh my gosh, Nerina! I can't imagine pulling all of the dandelions by hand...they are very stubborn. But you're right, at least we can leave the heavy coats off. Yay!
