The Wonder of Nature, Part 2 (aka the Near-Futile Wait for a Sunbreak)


The next chance I had for decent photos was over the weekend. The good news is I haven’t had to water  one bit, and I probably won’t have to until June or so except for the potted plants under our porch awning. Frankly, even those are growing like mad right now, but best not to take any chances. Also, a word about the grass: we stick to organic fertilizing/weeding solutions because obvious reasons plus we live right next to a small lake and our runoff is extra-likely to cause problems. So, no, we don’t have the most verdant lawn in existence. That’s just how it goes. Anyhoo.  On with the show!

The clematis is straining to find something to latch on to so it can grow. We'll be putting trellisi up shortly.

Here you can see the flower bulbs coming up all around the rose bush.

Here's a different view of the "main" garden. I have to admit that some of the flowers look more like cabbage. I hope the packet wasn't mislabeled. On the other hand, I could learn to cook rabbit...

Predictably, while I take  prosaic photos that just do their job, Lisa sees flowers and takes beauty shots. Go fig. :p
