My ‘garden’ is glorious

There was a weird Saturday recently where I was up and bopping about, thrilled to be awake (?!) by 6 a.m.

So I poked at garden until a little before 9.

Stair garden, before:

The lemon balm in the top seeded itself. The oxalis in the middle slept all winter on the back steps, looked very d-e-d, then sprang to life once left outside. The bottom layer of lettuce is proving delicious.

To the far right, a pot of delicious-looking NOPALES. The strawberry pot is ancient, a long-ago birthday present from my bigger brother.

Hens and chicks, multiple varieties, from stores and yard sales. Who’d have thought they’d stay perennial here?

Fuzzy things from the Master Gardener plant sale:

And my temperamental succulents that live in the house all the time, flourishing on back window sill:
