Persistance Pays Off

We planted grapes last year in hopes that they would survive our northern winters.  This spring we had what we called "the winter that would never end."

When it kept on snowing and snowing and snowing well beyond normal, I commented to my husband that when it would finally melt that the grapes should benefit from the slow melting and deep root watering.

I guess I was right ~ the grapes are coming along nicely! 

And those wonderful little pollinators showed up right on schedule.  I've noticed that we have a lot of bees this year, and several different types.  Buzz on little guys, buzz on! 

And being that I'm into 'companion gardening' you know - planting things that enhance each other - I discovered that chives do well with grapes! They're supposed to help each other in one way or another.  Don't ask how or why, I just follow a guide I found on the internet. And if it's on the internet it can't be wrong - can it? 

Look out arbor, we're about to cover you!  And check out those teensy-weensy clusters of grapes!

Gypsy Wagon

I want a gypsy wagon-art studio-napping nook.
Oh Honey ~~~ 

Or maybe a vintage trailer to make over
I’ve done that before and then sold it ~
Fun project!

The hummingbirds 
are working overtime

 We have five feeders hanging 
and they are busy, busy!
