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.

Turning Green??

I noticed a slight tint of green beginning to show on the iris plants this morning. A sure sign that Spring is on the way!

Moose Browse

My poor little Mountain Ash tree was mangled by a moose several years ago, it has barely recovered. Apparently there is a dead moose alongside the road killed by a collision with a car today. Moose can be a bit of a pain.

Did Not Cut Back Iris In Time

We had an early dump of snow and it came before I had finished trimming back the perennials. So, now I’ve got a mess of tangled, flattened iris. I suppose I can still go out if it warms up a bit, and finish the job. It might be a good idea, otherwise I’ll do it […]

Frost on the Roses

There was a good layer of frost on everything in the yard yesterday morning, although it warms up nicely during the daytime. Just a reminder that winter is on the way.

Garden Harvested

Got the garden harvested, lots of veges stored in the freezer, carrots go into buckets of sand in the garage, and potatoes stored in banana boxes in the garage. The potatoes are really yummy.

Trimming Back Iris for Winter

I’m half way done trimming back the Iris, today it rained so I will wait for a nicer day to finish. I have a lot of Iris in the yard, more than I realized. I will also trim back the rose bushes and finish harvesting the garden, digging up potatoes and picking brussels sprouts and […]

Rose Hips

My Hansa Rugosa are producing a bounty of Rose Hips. Some people make jam out of them. Since we do not eat sweets due to Diabetes, we leave them for the birds.
