To-do tackled and now on to Tuesday


I did pretty well on my to-do list from yesterday.  I still haven't found my herb seeds and Charlie still insists on chasing chickens (just short bursts, enough to make the chickens scatter and bawk) but I did pretty well on the rest of it.  At the end of my day I decided to reward myself with a walk around the yard with my camera.  I can't get enough of the flowering plum right now, but I also saw the first trillium and some violets.  

Here's a bit of what I noticed.

Soft, pale violets and bright yellow dandelions.  I have plans for each of these today.



Poplar leaves catching the light.


Trilliums and a patch of Creeping Charlie I overlooked.



I watched as the sun dipped below the horizon, making the sky blush and sending the dandelions to sleep.




And finally that beautiful moon through the trees.


My to-do list for today is pretty similar to yesterday's and I can only hope it ends as nicely.

Hope you have a great day.

(oh, by the way, Blogger keeps eating my posts and comments so if you've left a comment and it's gone, I have it in email.  I'm a little behind on replying, but I'm working on it.  Thank you all, I so enjoy reading what you have to say, and visiting your blogs too.)

so proud of you my friend that you did so well with your to-do list yesterday ! May you find the seeds & may Charlie stop chasing the chicks ;-)
and I'm aslo glad for you that you could have a walk on your own. Totally deserved & beyond, even. The violets & dandies ... for eating (jams, jellies or candied ?) or for dyeing ? :)
oxoxox take care
lots of love your (and your loved ones') way

What lovely photos. I enjoy being able to peek in and see your beautiful spring.
Blogger certainly has been naughty lately!
Have a good week.

Do you know where I live in Ontario, Canada(little town where a jar of your buttons now reside) we aren't suppose to pick trilliums as they are our Province's flower! Do they also grow in a burgundy colour?
