In The Gardens This Week

This week in the gardens...

My harvest-themed plate can still be seen.  Soon the perennials will have it completely covered.


The columbines are about to bloom.


The forget-me-nots, which I thought were overcome by the larkspur, have reappeared.  They are hiding beneath the delphinium - probably for fear that the larkspur will return.


The yarrow (a lovely reddy-orange variety) is being shadowed by the lady's mantel.  Perhaps it's time to transplant to a location with more room.



Rhubarb that will soon transform into brown-sugar-topped muffins!


A crazy bed-o-peas, trailing on re-purposed garden fencing.


Lettuce for dinner.  And lunch, and dinner, and lunch... 


Happy chives about to bloom. 


I'm having a wonderful time watching everything return to life in the garden.  I hope you are finding new treasures and much joy (and taste) in your garden too!

I love your garden, Rue! It's absolutely gorgeous. Wishing I didn't live in an apartment so I could have a proper garden instead of my little window boxes.

I have some serious garden envy now. Time to get my balcony covered in plants. Those forget-me-nots look like the happiest flowers!

I love your garden dear, I can't wait until my veggies are as big and luscious as those. :)

Your garden is waking so beautifully! Don't you wish we could just spend entire days just watching nature thrive?
