This morning I heard the unmistakeable caw of the bluejays and I felt my heart leap a little. One landed on the terrace just outside my bedroom window, catching the attention of my cat Minnie.
I just love to see the jays. They always come at this time of year to signal the beginning of planting season.
And we're ready to go. Last weekend, the hubs and I visited friends in the suburbs of New Jersey and made a bee line for a nursery near Morristown.
Along with our berry bushes, we bought strawberry seedlings. We have some growing in a pot, but they aren't terribly productive. Here's hoping the additional plants will solve that problem. It will be nice to have mixed berries for breakfast!
