Early Spring Garden

Hello everyone,
      I hope you are having a good week. We are spending a lot of time in the garden getting it ready for our first tour from Japan in a couple of weeks. I took some photos in the garden today so you can see what is blooming now. It is coming along and a couple of weeks will make a big difference,I hope.

It is lovely to have lots of daffodils for cheery bouquets in the house.

I love to eat outdoors as soon as the weather warms up.
Pansies blooming in a pretty bowl.
I love these white and apricot daffodils.
A pretty spring teapot.
Just a few shots of our early spring garden.

I have to admit all this gardening makes me look forward to a good hot soak and early to bed!

I am joining My Romantic Home for Show and Tell today and The Rose Garden in Malevik for Show Off Saturday.

Thank you for visiting,

I'm right with you on the bath and an early bed. The wonderful thing about spring is that it beckons us outside to wear off those winter cobwebs on our muscles. The bad thing is that as we get older, it take its toll.

The daffodils and pansies are beautiful shots. I just cut our first lilacs of the season - everything is so early this year in SW Ontario, Canada.
