I thought you might get a little grin out of this. They are so serious about it, too!
Remember awhile back I told you about digging up the rose from a lady's house who was being forced out? It is obviously happy here! It was a very old rose bush, and took quite a bit of pruning just to get it to the point where we could dig it up. The fragrance is heavenly. I am so happy that it is happy.
I think some of the cuttings are rooting well, too, so there will be a whole new generation of this pretty baby to spread around! Hoorah!
This one on the left I've had for a long time. It was a cutting from sweet neighbors, long gone from here, but I think of them every time I see this rose. The one on the right is a plant I bought several years ago.
And if you look closely, you can see a tiny little lemon on the tree out front. It has lots of siblings on other parts of the tree. Happy me
I planted some asparagus seeds this year and they grew! Since I have not yet come up with a permanent resting place for them, I have them in this large pot in the corner of the garden.
Unfortunately none of these little babies poked their heads out of the soil at all. Hence, I got a late start with my tomato planting and had to go and buy plants. Not happy about this at all.
Out in the chicken yard, they are busy composting and then sifting it through the chicken wire. It actually works out pretty well, because then I can just scoop it up into a bucket and carry that nice compost wherever I want it. They are good little workers!
Of course you understand that it requires considerable supervision from Bruno to be sure it's all done correctly.
This rather blurry picture is of the tree directly behind us. I think this is some sort of egret, but I've not been able to discover exactly which one. They are BIG birds! There have been two of them up there building this nest, so looks like another family moving in.
I took a lot of pictures of lunch preparation yesterday so that I could give you the recipe for these salmon croquettes. Then I remembered that I had already done that, so I won't repeat.
And.........I got our younger daughter's birthday quilt loaded on the frame and I've started quilting it. Which is a very good thing because her birthday is next Saturday!!! YIKES!
I hope there's lots interesting where you are, too. Have a great weekend!
