Picture Monday

For a lack of anything exciting to write about. I share pictures of the beauty of spring around our home.

Our azaleas this year have really bloomed out. This is the best time of the year for our yard. In a few months we will have very little color except shades of green & brown.

Here is a close up of one of the blueberry bushes. It is full of little baby blueberries like these.

Our broccoli is growing, growing, growing.

The lettuce bed. I can't wait until I can pick enough for a salad for us.

My baby spinach plants. Again, waiting waiting, waiting until I can have a fresh spinach salad from the garden.

The tomato seedlings have come up, along with carrots and my herbs. So far only my bell pepper seedlings and potatoes have been disappointing. After Easter I will be planting more of our tender/summer veggies.

And, by the way if anyone has a special line to the Mother's Day fairy. Could you let her know that I am craving one of these:

Nooooo! You can't post a photo of all that gorgeous color and not feed my newfound addiction by telling us WHAT you have in your yard!

What are the beautiful bright red things in the front left? What's that pink stuff there in the far back? Are the white things beside the red things the azaleas? And do you find you have mosquito problems w/ them? TELL ME MOREEEEEE!!!!

It's beautiful there! :-)

I wish that I could tell you all that color was from many different things - but we have a hard time growing a lot of variety in our acid-clay soil. They are all different varieties of Azaleas - the blooming shrub of the '60s and '70s, you'll find them in all the older established neighborhoods around here.
I can't say I have ever heard that azaleas cause mosquito problems. We do have alot of mosquitoes in the summer but I thought that was due to the 'swamp' that is in the woods behind our house. Gardenias, on the other hand, do attract skeeters and we have some of those in the backyard.

A family of six living and learning. You might catch us outside in the mud or working on crafts. We always seem to be on the go, come on and join us.
