Nicholas' birthday and more garden work...

Can hardly believe our youngest child turned 19 today! Who gave him permission to grow up?

Strawberry rhubarb pie

(The fruit was grown in our garden - yay!)

Abundant blessings today and the year ahead!

I love you, Little Buddy!

At the end of a long day's work in the garden...

Don't like to use peat moss, but really felt the huckleberries and blueberries needed an extra boost after last year's frigid weather. Also added compost to all the front and side areas. Pulled weeds and removed everbearing strawberries (can't get them to produce sweet fruit). Planted osteospermums in the deck garden boxes.

The front garden beds took a hit last winter with the extra cold weather, so removed that which did not survive well and I'm transitioning the space to mostly herbs.
Planted rosemary, summer savory, hyssop and lavender today.

Alot of work to do for this herb area... Orange thyme and rosemary here.

Fresh covering of compost.

Love daisy flowers just outside our bedroom!
