More of This and Some of That

The days were growing warmer.
Were is the key word that sentence.
The last week has been a little chilly.
It does not stop Jackie and I from exploring.
We have taken lots of wonderful walks.
Her favourite path is around the nature trail in town.
There is always something new and exciting on this path.

My little garden is going well. Lots of greenery at the moment with pops of colour and another round of mystery flowers.

Does anyone know what these are?
As it grows,it reminds me a bit of a Lily. Then the outer-covering breaks away and tiny white buds are noticeable.

I do not remember planting these mysterious flowers.

I did however try something new in the garden.
I am starting sunflowers off from seeds.

So far, so good. The little sprouts are quite strong.

Looking closely, I found they have a neighbour.

The little fellow was difficult to spot, at first. Then the ground moved and there he was! He likes to sleep in this little hole during the day. By the time evening comes around, Mr. Toad is off and exploring on his own.

I learned my lesson last summer when I planted and lost quite a few tomato plants. This season, I have kept a few plants in containers mixed with some herbs.

They are doing quite well!

I'm off to do a bit more outside before the rain returns.
I hope you are all well! :)
