What’s blooming in the garden?

After a long winter, it is nice to finally see green and color everywhere I look.

Last week, we had an entire week of cold temps, gray skys, and rain on and off. We now have bright sunshine and our temps are moving towards the mid 90’s at the end of the week. Can you say Mother Nature is conflicted?

You can also say rain plus sun equals everything is growing – grass, veggies, fruits, trees, shrubs, and perennials.

In a walk around yesterday morning after chores, I just smiled at all the color.

And as I headed back out, I was thinking about the color red – as in tomato red.

I’ll be taking a little break from gardening this week because we’re heading out on our yearly historical tour with our granddaughter.
.
What will we have to talk about when we get back? How about witches, presidents, white picket fences, equality, horse racing, polo, and Clydesdales?
.
It should be fun.  🙂  Have a great week.

  4. I’m so jealous that you still have pansies. They seem to be a favorite of my groundhog family. Love the shot of the veggies under a floating cloud.

    And what a great idea, a historic tour! Enjoy it.

  7. So pretty! I love the arch (and pansies… which I miss out on every year, it seems, because they get nabbed up so quickly here in the Rockies). Best of fun on your historical tour. You are a grandma to emulate, no doubt!!

    Witches? You’re going to talk about witches? I am intrigued! I hope you have a wonderful trip and thank you for the pictures — they really did make me smile. I told my daughter today I am planning my next trip (when ever that may be) to Michigan in May so that I can smell the lilacs and eat morel mushrooms!

    I HOPE that you don’t MISS your weeding chores too much on your trip. If you DO, you can stop along the road somewhere and pull a few….

  12. I love your grape arbor. Do you get many grapes? You have beautiful blooms too. I think I have more of a late summer fall garden. I don’t have a ton of things that flower now.
