Because I plan to go to bed tonight thinking about homegrown tomatoes and the year’s first daylily… and imagining that is a juggler in the fourth photo below!
More bounty from faithful garden commentor Opie Jeanne:
Volunteer chives, foxgloves, and baby lupine in the gravel
Beans just starting, volunteer lupines
New rose garden. 3 years ago this had a dying pine tree and some English ivy (invasive species here) and a row of elderly lavender, also dying. The rocks were there and we salvaged a few of the old lavender and added a lot of young plants. Had to fix the drainage in this part of the yard before we did anything.
[Ed: That can’t be a juggler leading the parade, can it?]
Corn bed, alpine strawberries
Last of the Lilacs, just a week ago
Dreaming of bunnies
Here north of Boston, I’ve got almost all the mail-order tomatoes transplanted, but now all the rootpouches need to be slide-puzzled into place before they’re tall enough to require laddering. And I can’t finish moving them until the Spousal Unit finishes pruning as much of the godsdamned overhanging nuisance oak as he can reach from a ladder, which it’s my job to hold… if I’m not back on the blog this evening, assume the worst.
Speaking of future posts — there’s a bunch of pet pics waiting to cheer up our mornings, but as best I can tell from my disorganized email, the only gardening post now in the queue is a blog-link from Peter Cook. So, if you’ve got garden photos, this would be the time to send jpgs to annelaurie at verizon dot net.
What’s going on in your gardens this week?
