Spring Twilight

Evening has always been my favourite time of day and there is something very special about a cool, peaceful evening in the Spring. Last evening was a perfect time to take a quiet walk by myself in the orchard.  

Yesterday my husband did all of the lawn cutting.
I love it when the orchard is newly mowed and looks like a park.

Walking through the orchard in the evening is a great time for assessing how the crops are coming along.  It's been an early Spring this year, but of course it's impossible to predict what will happen.

I can't believe how far along the cherries are.  Looks like an early crop this year.

The apricots already need to be thinned.

The birds were singing their hearts out to me - I felt like I was being personally serenaded!

This cardinal was singing a beautiful solo.

But I was especially glad to see our orioles are back!

Our garden is all worked-up and ready to plant.  We've had such a
lovely Spring, it has been hard to wait until Victoria Day weekend
to plant.  Next weekend:  garden planting!   


  1. Oh Helen, just gorgeous. Wonderful :) :)

  2. Hello Ro, Thankyou for following me. I love your blog, it's a peaceful place to be. I loved your post on "Carrying Jesus." Thinking of your SIL, and also your desire for a little one. God is Good, I will ask Him about it :) (as I'm sure you do all the time.)

  3. Oh "Givinya" - you had me at your name! It caught my attention and gave me a chuckle and then I laughed all the way through your posts. You have a brilliant sense of humour! And thank you for your kind words and for your prayers. You are right, God is good. :)
