It's Tuesday here in my little corner of the world, and the sun is shining brightly! How much better can life get than that? (Other than maybe school being over for the year...and the remaining 3 kids being home, of course).
Here's the garden, with the little cherry tree between the beds. Maybe putting the beds on either side of the tree wasn't such a dandy idea, but sun hits that spot from 9AM until 7PM, when we're not living in the monsoon (like the past 11 days, and I was counting). You can see that my lawn is a riot of yellow dandelions, and the lawn service isn't due until day after tomorrow. Oh, well, some days go better than others. The big green sprouts are onions. Chives are 1" tall green hairs; carrots are sprouting, as well, and the radishes are doing their thing - you can count on them. I expect to plant more seeds this afternoon, perhaps, now that the rain has stopped.
Close up shots of the black seeded lettuce.
And our lilacs are in full bloom. Can you smell them through your computer? Why not? Don't you have the scratch and sniff monitor? These babies are 80 years old, and smell better than any perfume I've ever encountered.
Happy Garden Tuesday, everyone!
