How does your garden grow?

It has been so much fun to watch the seeds in the garden beds sprout this year.

The spinach is getting ready!

The mesculin is looking delicious.

One of my gnomes is hidden behind the hostas. These plants are so funny. Having never been the care taker of hostas, I didn't realize that they only appeared to completely die in the fall. When little stick-like shoots came out of the ground this spring, I didn't think much of it. Then I somehow was out of the yard long enough for the plants to get all big and leafy on me without my notice! So fun.

I *think* this is a ranunculus. It was also hiding in the garden bed, a hold over from last summer.

This is the bouquet of flowers Eloise picked out for me for Mother's Day with a few sprigs of lilac from the bush in our yard. I looooooove the smell of lilac.
So, yes, as you may have noticed, I am working harder on including pictures in my posts. Often the subject matter doesn't exactly lend itself to pictures, per se, but I'll try! A picture-free blog is a boring blog.


  1. I love the pictures but your blog is never boring. :)

  2. p.s I also love lilacs and those ranunculus are gorgeous! want.
