But Life Goes On


It rained last night.  Today the green of the earth stands out against the black of the soil.  There are a few blooms in Tanya's garden though the tulips, daffodils and lace peonies are pretty well done.  The rose bushes are starting to grow; we lost all the climbing roses last winter and they are coming from the roots now. The petunias and geraniums are all transplanted.  Sunday saw a few more flowers added in, purchased at the local market.

The kitchen garden is looking wonderful.  Better than last year.  Potato bugs finished off some tomatoes but they have been replaced and all sprayed. Corn, cucs, melons and squash are all up too.

The tulip pictures are from April 23.  They sort of inserted themselves where they felt like it.  Tanya took the pictures...hmmmm...

  2. Wow! If I didn't know about the political situation where you are, I'd envy you. We just had a foot of snow over the weekend and everything is still white today. Sigh. But I'll take snow over war any day... just saying.

    1. This made me laugh more than I should have.
