Here's a cure for a rainy day. Today, the drops are gently falling here and will do so most of the week. I kind of love it because I'm a lazy waterer. But, really... I do prefer sun, glorious sun. It literally makes me giddy. I'm easy.
But, I'm so tardy with my admittedly self-imposed deadline of Friday garden posts. No biggie, but it is a tad lame that I actually shot these almost a week ago. I just don't get that much computer time these days. I feel like there's some parallel between time and income. You know how they say, how ever much money you make, that's pretty much what you'll spend? Maybe even more? (Not the good savers, but most people.) I feel like, no matter what my work/family/activity situation is, I just never have enough time. I'm always 105% committed. It needs fixing, but how?
Anyway, thank you Kim for posting your glorious garden photos. They are stunning. And, you helped me get off my no-time train and just post some photos of pretty sunlight on growing plants. Ahhh.
|The artichoke is R E A C H I N G ! So frondy, so handsome.|
|Alpine Strawberries. Find 'em and eat 'em.|
|Oh, Mr Pabs loves a sunny day.|
|Almost overnight, the 'Lisbon' lemon tree has about a hundred buds on it. It's amazing what happens with the start of a new season, plus the proper fertilizer.|
|Peas are climbing and salad greens are ready for some light harvesting.|
|Rainbow chard getting bigger.|
|'Gravenstein' apple branch covered with flower buds.|
|Lavender. The bees are quickly finding their way back to our yard. Butterflies too. Jacky is determined to learn how to sit very quiet and still, so that butterflies will land on his hand. He's really, really determined.|
|Starts in the works: cherry tomatoes, herbs for replenishment, climbing vines, sunflowers + more flowers.|
Hope there's just the right mix of sun and rain in your garden this week!
