My Garden: An anticipation post… This photo was taken May 9th, 2011 of my front yard walkway.
I have “Basket of Gold” alyssum, candytuft, creeping phlox, mixed herbs [thyme, oregano, and sage], a fern-foliaged tansy, daylily foliage, and various tulips blooming.
I seriously can’t wait for spring.
Breakfast from the Garden: Saute of onion, potato, red russian kale, arugula, new zealand spinach, yellow & green beans, golden yellow snap pea, jalapeno, and garlic chives. Served with a paprika & black pepper egg in a wrap. My breakfasts are usually like this. ♥
Photo Session: Here’s a mini tour of my gardens! It’s a peek into what I do when I’m not chained to my computer table arting! hee hee hee.
Sadly the backyard is controlled by my two dogs, so the only available space is in the front. It’s a nice mixture of annual/perennial flowers, shrubs, herbs, fruit/berries and vegetables. There are zones to my garden, the front is primarily a vegetable garden. The sides and back are all viewing areas where I have flowers planted. And my side yards are my shade gardens. I plant for nature - all are either nectar-giving for the various pollinators or shed seeds for the birds to feast on in the fall. The vegetables are for me. ♥
Photo: After many attempts to capture a monarch flying around my garden this afternoon I finally got it… the money shot. My camera was probably an inch away. It was surreal.
