Spring Garden #FolksyFriday

I had no idea what to do for Folksy Friday. I looked around the forums to no avail. No theme presented itself in any shape or form. So I looked on the fromt page, nothing. Then I decided to look under home and garden. There I saw some inspirational pieces and thought hmm... a nice day yesterday... gardens... springlike weather again... and so this Folksy Friday was born. I decided to put in lots of garden items because now is when we start tidying up and preparing the garden looking ahead to when we can start planting.
I know it`s not quite that time yet, at least not in our region, with the very low night temperatures. Soon though with any luck.
Hope this gives you some ideas for prettying up your garden or that you just really enjoy todays display.
Yesterday started very misty and then turned into a beautiful day, very springlike. I managed to get a few pics taken. The glass covers were listed and sold so I am making some more. I somehow think they may be popular this summer. Nothing worse than taking a sip of your drink and finding uninvited guests swimming around.
The grandchildren came for tea, or at least 3 of them did. The 5 year old was at a friends for tea. I did some painting with the three year old. I asked if he wanted to make a card for Mummy and I said we would get the paints out. With hindsight, not a good move. He did enjoy adding lots of water but luckily the kitchen table was made originally with such things in mind when our daughters were young. I did get covered in paint, or at least my hands were before it was finished. One card was a gooey mess but the other looked okay. My grandaughter had been doing some art homework and came down to see us painting and decided to do one too. A good time was had by all.
The eldest grandson did my ironing, so he was happy too at earning some money but I was happier still at getting it done without any effort on my part.
As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
ENJOY!!!

I woke to a very white world
where mist crept and swirled.
So thick it`s dampened any noise
and makes people lose their poise.
My world has closed in and shrunk
thanks to this opaque white gunk.
As time goes on it thins a little
as the sun tries hard to whittle
and burn away the misty sight
bringing much needed warmth and light.
Nearby trees appear as ghostly apparitions
as very slowly the day transitions
opening up the world once more
as ghostly ideas fade back into lore.
The sun works hard, the day brightens
quicker still as the mist lightens.
A tiny hint of blue appears up high
yes we finally have some blue sky.
Once the ghostly white is gone
we know the day will be a good one.
Clear blue sky and bright sunshine
as days go it`s really fine.
Fading from memory, the days of cloud
when the sky lived in a dark shroud.
Once more we look forward to spring,
with enough joy to make us sing.
