I've been working at my garden beds lately and although it's been very cool and wet here, the peas, beans and zucchini are coming up and so are the radishes and lettuce. I might even have a couple heads of Buttercrunch to pull up for a salad this weekend. Oh, how I love me some green stuff from the garden. No green smoothies from my lettuce. Just salad -- at least for now. Hubby is going to build me a garden gate to put up on my new deer-proof fence. It's not going to be anything fancy. Just a rustic look for a ranchwife's garden. Simple yet cute. I'll snap some pictures of that soon.
Vincent van Gogh, Irissen, 1889
My flower beds have changed from the reds and yellows of tulips and daffodils to the blues and purples of iris, blue flax, alium, and purple columbine. How did it changed over night? Flower fairies?
More than anything, I must have flowers, always, always.
