Got my morning glory and nasturtium seeds planted. Got my chia cat planted with grass and flax seed. Parsley plants are planted. Still a chance of frost so the basil and tomatoes are still on the patio under roof til after the end of the month. I just got 2 tomato plants - yellow pear and Cherokee Purple, an old heirloom.

The lilacs and columbines are outstanding this year.

Rhododendron season here. They are crazy beautiful this year. Everything is growing like mad. My maroon clematis that appeared a few years ago always surprises me when it blooms. I guess a bird or the wind planted it.

I was out walking today and saw these and had to take a pic. Hundreds of tiny roses.

Here is a fun article about growing things from your kitchen 'scraps'.
I grew celery like this last year and even had one winter over and grow again this year. I've of course grown potatoes, garlic, onions like this, as most gardeners have. I'm going to try romaine next.

Ugh, you all make me feel sad - my yard is HUGE, but I can hardly keep up with mowing let alone to do all the work that needs to be done!

Luckily my boyfriend is very crafty and has volunteered to get some friends to rebuild my front walkway after it was ruined last January from a pipe excavation. It was a brand new walkway

I'll leave my rose bush (Blue Girl, but it's only bloomed as the hybrid tea rose once) here too. It's the extent of my yard and garden this year, but it (and all the cute baby wild animals) makes up for what is lacking.

I should have done better. I was given some nice bushes to plant when my dad died, but I let them all die. It was too late to get them in the ground, then winter came, and I was not in a mood to care for plant life. Maybe I can replace them.

I don't even know how my rose got so big and beautiful. I neglected it.

OMG, i have 10 bags of yard waste for pickup this month!

and i just put 4 of them out there tonight! thank goodness they haven't picked up yet this week!

last night i was out in the backyard and i could hear this crunching, so i came inside, got the flashlight...

and there was the BIGGEST skunk i have ever seen chomping away on the egg shells i put around my rhubarb to keep the slugs from eating the leaves...



i came home from work tonight and cut the bottom off every shrub and pulled every tall weed so that animal would have NOWHERE to hide. and while i was cutting back my *very* happy silver lace vine, i noticed that the horrible neighbours to the west have a HUGE woodpile in their backyard!

i think i know where that skunk lives....



i ache from one end to the other - it's time for a muscle relaxant, bed and a book. i've already scrubbed myself from head to toe to get rid of any pollen i've stirred up!

^ Skunks do have their good side. They are one of the few things that eat slugs and Japanese Beetle grubs. So don't hate those stinky guys too much. : )

My tomato plants are doing really well and all have fruit. Fingers crossed I get some good ones!

Some pics from today.
1. A trip to the farmers' market which is just a few steps from my front door. The first local strawberries, free range eggs, onions, and some more plants.
2. My little back yard.
3. My jasmine tree which I've managed to keep alive for a few years now. Hopefully will be blooming soon. It smells so delicious.
4. My siberian irises that I love the color of.
5. My wee garden - tomatoes, basil, parsley, rosemary, oregano, walking onions, chives, hot peppers, celery, and will be trying some romaine soon.

Giving up on the Lobelia. For some reason, I don't do well with them. It's frustrating.

Replaced with big hot pink New Guinea impatiens. Next year, it's ferns, period.

I had to stake my tomatoes on top of the cages. The cages just weren't enough support. They are still thriving but now need daily watering because of the heat. I pruned more today while putting in the stakes. I am so hoping ill get a good crop of maters soon!
