Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy!

Boy, I was humming this old John Denver song pretty much all day Saturday and Sunday!
We had the most beautiful weekend,
and I spent as much time outside as possible.

The animals were also happy to see the sunshine.
It's been cold, rainy and cloudy for weeks on end now
and a warm, sunny weekend was such a treat!

I did some work in the chicken yard.

Johnny Cash, my daughter's stock show pig, is looking good.

The kitties loved laying in the sun all day!

And I spent several hours taking care of this sad mess!
I planted early spring plants last February,
but then after the car accident, I never got to plant anything later in the spring
like I usually do.
For almost a year, my garden beds have been sadly neglected.

That, my friends, is the result of a lot of work!
But, oh the satisfaction. :-)

I weeded four of my six beds before I tuckered out.

I plated one bag of seed potatoes,

three onion sets,

carrots and radises, 

and one whole bed of salad greens. :-)
I'll weed the other two beds soon.
They're reserved for herbs and tomatoes.

I had plenty of company while I worked.

Oh, how I love my Daisy girl. 
Man's best friend indeed. :-)

How has the weather been in your neck of the woods??

Your beds look great. I know how much work that is. I still haven't gotten to mine, but it's on my list.

And, I'll always remember how you offered to come weed them for me after the accident! I said no thank you, because I just knew I would be able to get to them later in the spring, but I think you knew better than I did that it probably wouldn't happen. ;-)
