Seems like just yesterday,
I was being amazed it was April already.
Now, it's almost over.
Another month, bites the dust.
It's been busy.
Weeding, and mulching, and graveling.
I got the fenced yard almost finished.
Just have to clean up that bed at the back,
and along the Rio.
I got some of the Virginia Creeper cut back.
It wants to take over the world.
This is the before...
I got some things planted in the Veggie Garden...
tomatoes, squash...and, transplanted these cucumbers
that came up in the compost bed.
Not sure they'll do anything,
but, they were there.
The grapevine is putting on buds.
It looked so bad last fall, we thought it had died.
The buds on the softleaf yucca opened.
Aren't they pretty?
As an extra treat, here's our neighbor's yucca blooming.
No wire around it, and the deer didn't touch it.
And, to finish out the month with more beauty...
Last fall I ordered some iris online.
I got them all planted and they all did good...except one.
But, that's a good record, for me.
And, they're blooming.
First, New Moon
Next, Peaches and Dreams.
And today, Discovered Treasure.
And, all together...
We had some light rain, and have a forecast for heavier rain tonight.
So, I went out and cut the open ones,
so we could enjoy them, inside.
Look how the peach of Peaches and Dreams,
and the peach in Discovered Treasure, match.
Isn't Nature wonderful?
So...that's it from here.
Hope you have a fun and safe weekend.
See you next month.
