What a beautiful day today with some gorgeous sunshine and a cool breeze. Flowers are beginning to bloom, trees and fields are getting that lush green color to them. Lots of planting to be done and getting ready for the Humming Birds as they make their way to the feeders. We have already had a few drop by to enjoy the food we prepare for them. Planting some Firecracker bushes this year. They are supposed to be great for Humming Birds and Butterflies so we were told. New to us, but it's worth a try just to be able to see the beauty of the flower.....
Strawberries are ready.
