I love gardening, but I don’t have anywhere near enough time to do a decent job of it! So our garden is full of perennials and bulbs that have to look after themselves. We have lots of rhododendrons which were planted by my husband’s parents in the ’50’s, so they are huge trees now. April and May are spectacular here! We have wild blackberries and cultivated raspberries and blueberries. The tulips are just opening up now, and the hyacinths and daffodils are still putting on a show. Wildlife: lots of birds, such as hummingbirds, flickers, finches, kinglets, etc., a bear once or twice, skunks, raccoons, and neighbours’ cats. We once had a pair of eagles swooping around, and a kestrel went whipping by one day.
