Spring has finally arrived

We patiently waited and waited for spring to arrive and it finally has , as happy as I am to enjoy the warmer weather it does come with the task of cleaning out the garden , planting new and assessing what needs to be done. Late in the fall we cut down our front yard choke cherry tree , only because it was full of disease , this has left us with quite a hole in the garden . I have decided to polish up the front with more box woods this season and I have been thinking we definitely needed another tree , it is not so easy choosing a tree. Yesterday we headed off to the garden center and found the perfect tree it is a flurry serviceberry , fresh with white blooms , I will be adding more serviceberry bushes to the back yard as well, they attract birds and wild life too .

Can you see our little tree , it is a great start for this spring , I am looking forward to everything coming in and blooming over the next couple of weeks. Let's hope soon the weather will allow me to plant my window box and hanging baskets with flowers and color I need some color. Lot's of work still to be done.

This is going to make a great before photo , when the neighbours trees fill in it will be so lush here things are looking promising . I have never seen so many robin's as I have this spring, I love to see all the nature , spring is finally here, and my goodness I tell you here in Ontario we sure do appreciate it when it comes , last year at this time we were putting up the swimming pool , don't even think it is going up at all this year?

I hope you all had a wonderful time enjoying Mother's Day .

Looks like a great start! Your house is quite pretty on its own - lots of curb appeal!
We live in London - and I'm pretty sure we really deserved the lovely weather we had this weekend... it's been a long time coming in Ontario this spring!
