Well, after days and days of blustry winds and cooler than normal temperatures...the beauty and warmth of spring moved in...
and actually stayed several days, even long enough to get the teeny tiny garden planted...
as mama would say, "such as it is". But it's a start. Today, we have 59 degrees and steady rain...and this is supposed to stick around all week.
This is my one horseradish plant. It grew in last year's garden but the girls I bought it from said not to harvest the root until the second year. Probably won't know what to do with the root anyway.
and speaking of last year's garden...
do you remember the beautiful Leek that grew and grew? Well, it is no longer. Even the little bag of saved seeds have been misplaced. I loved that Leek! Last year's garden was full of surprises and extra special.
I've simply got to find another Leek plant. Lowes doesn't have them this year.
Anyhow, back to this year's garden...the teeny tiny row of red russian kale is looking good, however, I did see three pretty little blue butterflies dancing above the row which is probably not a good thing.
Oh, and back to this picture. The old birdbath is cracked and no longer holds water. So, using the pretty white flower pot Andee gave me last Christmas, and the large antique bowl I found at Goodwill, put together with a verbena plant and a frog and some rocks, well, it's kinda pretty, I think.
Not much to talk about lately except yard work, the garden, or back pain. So, I will finish up here with the garden Bee House...
not much difference except Poppy drilled holes in the ends of the sticks and I've added some big pieces of pine bark.
Still want to fill the large glass jar with bamboo pieces but haven't been able to find any.
I'm good at over-doing things...and may scare the bees away with the bark roof.
Hope I haven't bored you to the point of never coming back. Oh, and the back pain...I have an MRI scheduled for Friday. Hopefully, this will show if something has changed, causing more pain. :(
Thank you for visiting.
