Another bright blue sky to welcome the day. The cherry blossom buds are still not trusting the weather, and refuse to open into blossom.
After my magical day yesterday, I thought I better catch up with some household chores. Can't spend too much time away with the fairies ;) After lunch, I headed out to weed the rose garden. I didn't want to kneel down because of my recent leg episode, so I decided to take a low stool and bunny cushion.
I'm so used to kneeling when I weed that it took some getting used to, and I found that most of the time I stood and used a small, but long handled rake to help with the job. Up in the apricot tree, a bird was singing and I could see its silhouette. I took a photo, and while it isn't very clear, it appears to be a male House Finch by the colouring.
A pot of daffodils added a cheerful touch to the back garden.
The sky began to cloud over, but it was perfect for gardening.
When I was finished for the day, I noticed my little Yellow-Rumped Warbler friend high up in the oak tree. It was really hard to get a decent angle for a shot, but this is just to show that he returned today.
All in all, a productive day. There are a few more days of sunshine forecast, so I am looking forward to being out in it!
