It’s an amazing hot and sunny mid-twenties today (this weekend last year ws not – see https://sparroworks.ca/?p=1008)  and looks set fair for the rest of the Easter weekend so we have been out starting work n the garden  nothing too serious as there is still plenty of cold to come, we are sure, but tidying up, getting the pond pump working and simply admiring the spring flowers that are already suddenly appearing …. to say nothing of the Easter Frog that is taking the place of the traditional Easter Bunny.
