The waiting game, UPS style

Coming soon to my house and garden:

Hurry up, Mr. Mailman, before it gets cold again!


My garden is even glorious-er now

What with bursts of rain and heat. Stink tree’s constant rain of putrid pollen notwithstanding, it’s been a very gardeny sort of spring. And my pots survived some terrible storms. Or I would have cried for real.

The succulent bowl is back at it, replenished.

Nothing makes me happier than growing things.

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?
