Garden Therapy

Amazing colors together.

Every yard should have an Eiffel Tower!

The Sean Rose...planted it when my son was born 23 years ago.

Tonight's dinner, baby greens and herbs.

My "puddle" with 2 goldfish that are about 13 yrs old.
The "pop up" area. Things just seem to pop up here and I don't have the heart to pull them.

Speaking of popping up...Jack

And Max, aka "me too"
Spending a lot of time outside this week. The weather's been wonderful and the gardens in full bloom with tons of veggies where ever I can fit them. The pool's clean, the dogs are doesn't get much better than this. We've been eating the lettuces for a while and had the first squash last weekend. There's tomatoes on every plant and cucumbers starting. Even the nasturtiums have made their way into the salads this spring.
Have weeded all week since I'll be headed back up north to continue cleaning my mom's house out. This visit will be a bit tougher than the last because she's gotten worse and it's just a lot of difficult decisions to make. She didn't know who I was when I was there 2 weeks ago so we will see what the next visit brings. When dealing with the inevitable, it feels good to be outside where everything is growing vigorously and the colors are spectacular.
Yikes, I should be putting the rest of my kits together for my classes on Saturday and packing but who can be inside when its so nice out? I still have tonight...
