Garden notes

This is what has been keeping me from beading.

In the foreground, you can see one of our raised beds; this is the one that I can see from my living room. It is filled with flowers and veggies; right now the ranunculus are the stars on the flower side, and we're harvesting lettuces, brussels sprouts, spinach, onions and swiss chard. The peas are just starting to bloom; I can't wait to eat them!

To the left, you can see the other raised beds; there are three of them, though it's hard to see that in this photo. We've already planted the summer veg; the corn, pumpkins, cucumbers, beans and squash are sprouting, and the tomato and pepper transplants are holding their own. We're still waiting on the watermelon, cantaloupe, and basil seeds to do their thing.

You can't see my flower beds, or our fruit trees in this photo; I'll save those for another day.

Your garden is beautiful! Here we're still far from planting anything, beacuse we're waiting for the last cold days coming mid of May. Only few plants can be put out before that date.

Oh Cindy your garden looks divine and so serene. I can see myself spending a lot of time out there beading and enjoying the scenery... can I come for a visit!

What a beautiful garden you have! I would also spend a lot of time in my garden if I had one like yours (or any garden at all, actually). Here in the south of Sweden, spring has just begun.. gotta love it!
