Good news, Randall! After the long rather cold spring we have a very hot week. Not much to harvest yet, only herbs, garlic and lettuce. The first butterflies are out and also a big black and white spider, hunting.

Enjoying fresh garden green beans, collards, raspberries, and peas, among a few other greens and reds, including my first tomato!

I think you love that old house, Joan, if only for the memories!

Today is the 41 anniversary of signing the papers for my present home. Everyone thought I was insane for buying a condemned house when I had three ten-year-old kids to raise. It was the only way I could be sure I wouldn't fall on a higher priced home. We lived in a tent the first summer while we let our two cats kill all the mice. When winter came, we used quilts from my grandmother's home that she had just closed down. She made the quilts on a wooden frame in her living room that she raised by pullies to the ceiling to get out of the way. She lowered the quilts when friends came over to work on quilts. They chatted, had coffee, talked about recipes and patterns for dresses and coats. and even granddad's felt hat. The quilts were made of old coats, suits of my grandfather, worn out dresses and night gowns. The patterns were lovely and colorful. She stuffed the quilts with lots of cotton so the different fibers of coats and night gowns didn't matter.

Paricia, happy anniversary.I hope your year will be full of things you like to do with people with whom you like to be with. his is a time for treating yourself and doing a little self-indulgence and pampering of each other.

Happy Anniversary Patricia!

Spud,

That's cool about the bee highway.  I would love to see that done here.

Tigridias are fun.  Each flower lasts one day.   They usually send up a succession of flowers, but it still plays to plant a group of them.

This seems to be the season for orangy-yellow and cinnamon red-brown.  These, daylilies, nasturtiums, and marigolds.  They look nice together, but the combination was not planned.
