Miss Spring ain’t here in North Idaho, that’s for sure.

Where’d she go?

We’ve had a few sun breaks, but…I’m still in my LL Beans…with muddy grass from too much rain.

But a few things have been happening around here while waiting for her to arrive.

We have started the necessary dog-proofing for these young whippersnappers…

I bought some Walla Walla starts a few days ago…

and planted them under Roxie’s watchful eye.

Until this bed is dog-proofed, I put my bell pepper cages up to protect the little shoots from those four legged critters.

Our two resident geese have returned to our pond after wintering elsewhere.

{with all the rain lately it seems like a mini-lake now}

Would be so fun to put a GoPro on them and follow them on their travels.

Last summer we had a pesky squirrel try to enter the bird houses.

So I ordered copper predator guards from Amazon with the right sized hole for swallows and bluebirds…

and Mr. Denim put them on yesterday. Pretty dang spiffy, huh?

Good luck now, Mr. Squirrel.

Yesterday at Wally World I bought four tiny pots of tulips…only $1 each.

I’ll plant them together in a larger pot.

And last but not least, Mr. Denim and I recently celebrated our 38th wedding anniversary…

um yeah…we got married at age 12 🙂

The metal wall sign was a happy find at Magnolia Market…love that place!  Cool stuff there.

Have a great weekend, gardenistas!

And may it be Spring where you are!!!
