I've been busy but I'm back now.

The first thing I planted this spring 
was a small bunch of carrots.


The weather held up nicely so ...


I built a new rock garden around 
the old stump from our ugly tree. 


A little rhubarb custard pie was in order
and another one is in order today! 


along with a little bird watching. 
This yellow-rumped warbler 
really enjoyed his bath. 


Then I headed to the garden 


My love, built me some more 
raised boxes (makes a total of 8
and then we decided 
to extend the 
garden and add a trellis for
cucumbers and squash. 
I helped! 

Look close ~
 I transplanted those carrots!

The poppies opened the past 
few days! Enjoy!

Hi Cher,
Oh, how I would love to have those raised veggie gardens!

I have no place to grow veggies.
:(

The poppies are lovely. They are just starting in my garden, too.

Hope you are having a good weekend!
