The Garden Post
I think we bought too much mulch, as if ever there was a dilemma! My husband has been spending his evenings spreading the mulch and the pile is getting smaller but there's still a pile. Yesterday I grabbed the big camera which made Frodo dance and twirl. He knows I'm going to walk about the yard. He's well trained now, when I stop to shoot, he stops and waits patiently. He is completely into capturing the beauty around us.
My stump that is ever so slowly rotting away is a focal point in the front yard. We were talking about when the right side will fall off, considering perhaps a betting pool. You know how when there's a baby to be born, people will hazard a guess on the date, weight, and length. We just want to bet on the date that stump of ours falls apart. No one wants to put money down as of yet.
Wild blackberries are on the edge of my woods, mostly too sour to eat, but every year we pop one in our mouths just to be sure. The birds love our generosity when we leave them.
Lamb's ears is my favorite perennial of all and that color of green is the crayola color "sea foam green" that I would gravitate towards over and over as a child. My other crayola favorites were "burnt sienna" and "periwinkle blue".
My butterfly bush is alive! We thought we might have lost it through the winter and my husband wanted to rip it out. I begged to let it be. A few weeks later we had a tiny leave sprout--phew!
And lastly, my little humble vegetable garden that has basil, cucumbers, tomatoes and peppers. We are about two to three weeks behind planting because of the vacation.
Have you a favorite crayola color? Please share!!
