|Does anyone know what this is? It’s a volunteer something that’s been growing in my empty half-wine barrel. A Sunflower?|
We had grand plans for camping this weekend that got waylaid by some drizzly weather and drizzly noses – seems the boy has inherited his father’s allergies and they’re not being gentle. Poor kid – if anyone has any “natural” helps for allergies (a four year old on Zertec makes me a bit sad) I’m all ears.
The garden is ready for some warm days though. The fork around the broccoli seems to be helping a bit and I’m getting excited for those raspberries! The spinach is starting to bolt, but the potatoes are starting to flower which is exciting – flowers means tubers.
The lillies are up! Just a few days after the last of the peonies crumbled a part and the Black-eyed Susans seem to be doing well, just look at those colors! Though they’re not as tall as I remember previous years being – maybe I need to look into that. And the succulents around the mailbox are doing their thing…. even when it’s a thing I didn’t know they did – I didn’t know Hen and Chick bloomed like that.
Check in tomorrow for more goings on from the sewing machine.
