Back in February I posted my garden view in the dead of winter. It is now spring here in the Northern Hemisphere where we all hit the ground running the flora, fauna and those brave enough to wear shorts. My growing season is from May until October. So as they say “We have a long way to go and a short time to get there”.
This misty spring morning again I share some photos of my front garden this time as it prepares to burst into bloom.
In my profile I list my ‘occupation’ as the Property Manager of the Sideroad Estate. I am fortunate to be able to stay at home and have this as my ‘job’. DH and I are blessed to own a small piece of this earth that we share with all of God’s creatures. It is our sanctuary.
Our gardens are organic there are no pesticides or herbicides used on our land. We manage our old growth woods to allow the maximum amount of nesting sites for birds and to provide shelter for wildlife. There is a small pond to provide water for aquatic life and ducks to swim. Six years ago we had five acres of pasture land reforested with native trees and scrubs.
Running right behind our property is the Trans Canada Trail. It is made from abandoned railway lines and is absolutely fantastic. From an opening through our fence we literally turn left or right and can walk or bike across Canada. Here’s wee Jake trying to decide East or West?
So if you ever find yourself hiking the trail through Canada please detour in at the Sideroad. Come sit on my bench and let nature surround you, maybe we can talk about quilting and the things we love to do.
