Cherry Blossoms

Hi there everyone!  I am writing this feeling like myself again.  The weather has been wonderful and has been keeping me busy in the yard. Lots of planting, transplanting and of course weeding fills my time between cups of tea.
 
That little rascal raccoon from my last post made it down sometime during the following night.  He had to have been up there for 16 hours. What a place for sleeping! I was so glad to see him gone the next morning. Clever little guy managed to elude Bear.  My dog is not vicious and is usually the one that ends up injured when he gets involved with the wild critters, so I was very happy that there was no "meet and greet."
 
Quite a while back, I participated in Stephanie's mug exchange, and it was my job to send to Little Wren in Bangkok, Thailand.  A long story made short, I am very glad that it has finally arrived and that it was good condition.  You can see what traveled all the way from Canada to Southeast Asia HERE. Thank-you Little Wren for writing such a lovely post.
 
I think everyone's favourite thing about Spring is the blooms. Our cherry trees are nearly in full bloom and the bees are oh so busy buzzing about. The sounds, sight and scent are invigorating.
 
I hope you all have a great week!

  4. A wonderful time of year with all the trees in blossom. The wild lilacs are opening now and I need to travel some country roads to get myself a big bouquet.
    Lovely parcel you sent Wren although disappointing you couldn't send her any tea.

  9. Woo hoo is your Thai blogging friend, still on a massive high from the parcel you sent me! Thank you so much for the shout here to my reveal post. I still can't believe what good condition the parcel was in when it arrived, it was as you had hand delivered it! You must have ticked all the right boxes in both countries :)
    I am glad that you are feeling better - I am a firm believer in what goes around comes around, so all that positive energy & excitement that came out of the box that I opened, I'm sending right back your way!
    Have a wonderful week
    Wren x
