|Rhubarb hills transplanted from |
grandma's garden in the '60s
Yes, yes. I'm behind in posting. Been busy having fun. Gimme a break. First day back to work today, and vacation glow lingers. Ahhhh.
Highlights: Last root canal appointment, breakfast with my parents (zucchini bread french toast). Neither of these photographed well.
But the spring discoveries in my parents' yard -- that's another story. Flowers were dressed like spring, themselves.
|Raised beds -- daffodils and heliotrope|
|Notice the little purple wild violets along the edge of the top bed|
|Mom sizes up the garden|
|Dad fixing edging|
|Great-grandpa's oak -- started as an acorn from his timber,|
in a little pot on his nursing home windowsill.
|Checking out herbs that wintered over|
|Crocus about to bloom|
|Hen and chicks|
|Forsythia and redbud|
|Pretty, green, budding|
|Grecian windflower that escaped the bed|
-- its pale purple didn't photograph
|Pretty little wild violets|
|Sweet little plant|
|Trillium, again -- love those greens|
Quilt store shopping and cut-cut-cutting out fabrics for a quilt for my mom.
