Hansa Rugosa

The roses are prolific, I have been dead-heading them every day.

Blue Poppies

The Blue Poppies in the perennial garden have reached their peak bloom.

We Make Salad From The Garden

Every evening at dinner time I go out into the garden and snip off just enough lettuce for our salad. It tastes so good fresh from the garden. I miss doing this during winter.

White Hansa Rugosa

The rose bushes are loaded with blooms, the yard is looking festive with all the color.

Strawberry Covers

The strawberry plants are blossoming, soon juicy red berries will appear and the Magpies that have been hovering will try to turn them into a feast. These covers help keep the Magpies out. Otherwise we will have to pick them everyday as they ripen.

Blue Poppies Bloom

The front Perennial garden has an explosion of Himalaya Blue Poppy blooms. Just gorgeous!

Out of Control Plant

I can’t whack this plant, Bishops Weed, back fast enough, it seems to grow overnight.

Blue Poppy Buds

These are the most beautiful flowers when blooming which likely will be soon.

Sugar Snaps

These are so good when mature, we eat them right off the vines.

Spinach Going to Seed

I’ve got to go out and cut the seed tops off of the spinach plants. Wow, they are growing fast, too fast!

Bush Pea Starts

The seeds have bloomed and the Bush Peas look like they will need thinning. I love picking peas from the vine and eating them right in the garden. Princess puppy loves the peas as well.

Rhubarb Seed

It seems early but the Rhubarb plants have already gone to seed.

Iris; Blue and White

The Iris are almost the first perennial to bloom in the garden. Here I show the purple/blue Iris and the rare white Iris.

Two Bunnies

Yesterday I spotted two domestic rabbits feeding in the yard. Fortunately my vegetable garden is in raised beds so they couldn’t decimate the lettuce and tender young starts. The last I saw, they were happily hopping down the road away from our house. Such a shame to dump domestic rabbits into the wild, I have […]

Garden Fully Planted!

Today I finally braved the cold weather and wind and finished the planting of the vegetable garden. I’m hoping the weather will warm up a bit soon, or the seeds may not germinate in enough time to produce. We have only a 90 day growing season, and this year we are pushing the limit.

Nasty Cow Parsnip Invasion

This Cow Parsnip will be a challenge to remove without hurting some of the Perennials in this garden. And this one is going to be a beast with all the thorny Rose bushes surrounding.

Vegetable Garden Seeds Planted

Small mounds where potato starts are planted. I will add soil and build the mounds larger as the plants grow. I have several beds of snap peas, these are Sugar Snaps. Three of the fourteen raised beds are not planted yet. My neighbor is hardening off cauliflower, broccoli, and lettuce for me. She also came […]

Mallard Pair

This female Mallard has a next down by the water in the weeds, the male stands guard from the vantage point of our lawn. It is unusual to see her off the nest. Such a handsome pair!

Time to Clean Perennials

Between time spent helping Bob who fell and broke a rib and working in the studio I need to find a few hours to go out and clean up this perennial garden along the side of the house. I look forward to the time spent working in my yard.

Pretty Princess

Princess went to the groomer yesterday and got a bath and trimmed. Now she is very pretty and smells so good! She loves going to Scrub-a-Mutt in Palmer.
