Our garden Spring 2010

The vinca cut from Reuben's parents' garden growing under our maple tree. As grass will not grown there, we hope it spreads quickly to cover the ground.
Trillium that came with the house.

And below are several views of the beautiful tulips that have sprung up in the last 2 weeks. A bit early for tulips in this part of Canada but we won't complain!

The purple ones in the foreground are called "Princess Irene"...I couldn't resist.

Photos taken by Reuben.

Newest Niece

Looks like Reuben beat me to it...check out his blog for pictures of my newest niece, Julia Elizabeth. She was born to my sister, Karin and her husband, Josh on the morning of April 6. She was 7 1/2 lbs when she was born and has a darker skin tone and slimmer face than her big sister, Elyssa did.

They live in Ottawa so we get to see her progress frequently. We also went to Montreal recently to witness the baptism of Samuel Hayo deBlois, born to my cousin, Amanda and her husband, Derek.

As you can see, he is the youngest of three boys.
