I've named this place The Carroll Cottage as the Carroll family had built & lived here & now I'm the second owner & stewart to this property. They raised 10 children from this wee place & everyone in this town has come here to sing, play cards, or visit the Carroll's. So I thought it only fitting to call this place The Carroll Cottage.
Construction on the Hardwicke House begins soon. Large loaders will be digging up the yard to add on to the house & for the first time in my life...I'll have a garage to put my car in, what a great, or easier, winter I'm going to have not having to find the car after a snowfall! lol
Every morning & every evening Bill does his stretching in the form of Tia-chi. this day the cats join in on the action!
I remember the horror of sadness that came over me on February 27th, when I came home to see Boris on the floor, lifeless...
Yesterday I went into the kitchen & saw Mr. Boots, OMG not again, I thought.
The Carroll Cottage Garden
Lucy, the white goose will adorn the gardens corner.
Once the new bulbs start looking more than wee whiskers, I'll add more around the greenery & that garden will come to life!
The Canada lobster boxes that Armor made for me years back, will be placed at the base of the flag pole as the Canada flag is proudly flying as I type. Next year is Canada's big birthday & Liz & I are making, just for that occasion, a Canada themed quilt! No Liz, I've not even started yet. lol
Thank you for stopping by for a visit. I hope your garden is delighting you as it comes to life after its winter sleep. I never knew gardening could be so much work or such a satisfying time. Thank you Bill for helping me make it all happen this year. And a thank you for Hank too, for planting the 347 bulbs, last December, that are coming to life this spring. Many hands do make little work. :-)
Did you know that it's a Blue Moon this weekend?!
Though for the week.
