Weekly Garden Journal #5

We spend lots of time out in the garden, tending and caring for our plants, pretending that we are “growing” them.  In reality, the garden is nurturing us…growing us…

The Edible garden..


My roses have been worth the effort…


The lavender loves being out of the pots….nasturtiums are tops on my list of edible flowers…


I started a black-eyed susan vine commingled with a cardinal vine…so far, so good…


Keep on Growing…

Spring planting is my favorite part…well, eating the fruits of the planting is almost as satisfying…but never again do I have the control that I have in the Spring.  Soon enough the symmetry is spoiled and I move this and add that to cover the open spot or cut back the overgrowth, but today we all just sit hopefully, enjoying right where we are…


P.S.  It’s time to put out your hummingbird feeders!!!
