Spring has Sprung

Yay! Progress made on the garden project list-

thanks to some really nice weather:)

But more on that later-

just some miscellaneous photos today.

Oh! First I need to say that we have now added rabbits to our list of seen wildlife at our place.

Yep, when I was using our riding mower to mow down all the tall grass, weeds,

caneberries, etc, etc in the area formerly known as the main garden--

out hopped a baby bunny!! Unfortunately I didn't get to see the little one;

fortunately my best friend did!

(it also proved my point that our assorted tree limbs, branches, grass, weeds, berries,

etc, etc is now a wildlife habitat!)

But back to pics...


(aka leaf catcher in autumn; petal catcher in spring)

a bee going about their business:)

(wildflower/perennial garden)

baby strawberry!

(I haven't planted the Alpine strawberries yet but they have babies too)

one of many columbine--

every year I buy more and now I collect their seeds to plant.

My dream world would have hundreds of them and California poppies!

Love them both!

Can't remember the names of these right now-

but they are SO pretty!

(upper pond)


mostly marionberries

taking over the main garden

(but not as much since I mowed back there)

Also got another load of mulch down in the Japanese style garden-

looks SO much nicer now!

Planted two new columbines--

beautiful double white 'woodside gold',

basil, cilantro and three new tomatoes

('sungold', 'early girl' and a cherry tomato variety)--

the tomatoes were only $1 each for a gallon size

(made my day--well that and a hundred other things!)

Time for bed...

HI Aimee,
Oh, wow, looks like you have lots planned. I'm glad that you now th ere are bunnies near your home :) Maybe you'll get to see one for real, soon :) :)

I'm going ot the farmer's market today to see what I can find. It's a really small one on Saturdays, so the searching will be easy. Deciding what to purchase, another matter. The last time I went, there were so many different tomato varieties. Who knew there were that many?

I look forward to seeing some more photos of your garden :) :) Have a lovely weekend. Love and hugs from Oreogn, Heather :)

You are so right about tomato varieties--I love the ones I bought but I would also like to try some heirloom types; whenever I see them at the store I think they are SO pretty!
I haven't been to a Farmer's Market in awhile--ones I'd like to go to is the big one in Seattle at the pier (the flying fish one). Portland's Saturday Market and then some smaller ones:)
Thanks for your sweet, upbeat comment:)
Have a blessed Sunday!
