This past weekend, the weather was just about perfect. Sunny, warm, and no wind. Out in the garden, these tulips are blooming. I planted them four autumns ago-when Amy was in the 6th grade. Her school held a fundraiser, and I picked out an assortment of bulbs. Nothing ever came up, until now. These tulips are so pretty with their ruffled edges and bright orange red color. The rake once belonged to my parents. It’s one of my favorite garden decorations.
I was cleaning up my bottle garden and I was delighted to see that a tiny plant was growing inside the small green bottle. It seems that Mother Nature improvised her own green house. When it warms up a bit more, I’ll carefully remove the bottle and see just what kind of plant it is.
My free bowling ball is looking more comfortable in the role of garden ornament now. In a few weeks, the surrounding plants will be tall enough to hide it, and I’ll be rolling it to a new location. Now that it’s retired from the bowling alley, I wonder if it misses life in the fast lane?
And finally, here I am in the rhubarb patch. All the rain and sun lately has really made it grow. A lot…
Hope you don’t mind a little Monday leg pulling!
Have a great week, dear readers!
