Garden Tuesday

Yes, this ongoing theme is lifted from Pam. But, if you see something brilliant, isn't imitation the sincerest form of flattery?

My azalea bloomed this weekend. It's the only deep red flowering plant I have here, and I'm glad it blooms a little later than the trees. The rhododendrons will be joining it soon.


My lettuce is growing, as are my chives and carrots. We've had a couple of sprouts in the squash department, although they don't show up that well, and, of course, you can see the onions. The seeds I got over a week ago still haven't gotten planted, because we've had either rain or cold (or both) constantly. Maybe this afternoon, or tomorrow!
You can see that the little cherry tree near my garden beds still has some blossoms, but they're dropping fast.

And the yard is vivid shades of green, with a couple of red trees thrown in for good measure. Who would believe there are so many greens in the world?

Your garden looks great! I hope the weather improves so you can get your remaining seeds planted. Hard to believe that in a few weeks we'll all actually be wanting rain; for now, though, I've had my fill of it! I chuckled when I saw a new fangled rain barrel at Home Depot this weekend that has a hose hooked up to it for watering gardens. Come July I probably be thinking a rain barrel would be handy! I really like the last photo of the trees in your yard. It reminds me of a painting I saw once. Beautiful!

You yard is HUGE and beautiful. The garden looks like it's doing well - can't wait to see all your bounty.

I am always amazed at the variety of greens in the world - sometimes it looks so unbelievably fake

What a great spring green! Your garden sure isn't wasting any time coming up.

Your yard is enormous and very well kept. I'm not sure how you have time to do everything you do - you must not need sleep. g

Any nicer, and it would look like a posh golf course...

Remember, do not let your chives go to seed, or you will have them everywhere. Trust me, I know!

That last picture is wonderful. Isn't it amazing all the shades of green in nature.
