Coming Up Poppies
Oh my Good Heaven's Gracious!!
I wish sometimes I had a digital camera.
Add to that its neighbor, a white bearded iris which unfolded yesterday. Just gorgeous.
And my peonies are starting to show color on their buds as well. It is sooo exciting!
In the backyard the seeded grass is all coming in, except where the nice kitties decided the new topsoil was cat litter and dug it all up.
The strawberries are working overtime... I think I may actually be able to have a BOWL of strawberries at least once this year, instead of two per day popped into my mouth.
The lily of the valley is blooming...I took off one sprig to have on my desk in the house. mmmmm.
The ferns are just huge, and spreading. I really wish they'd stay so lovely, but i know that with wind, rain and catfights they will be broken and browning in a month or so.
Egads I love nature. I love gardening. I just love it.
Now why didn't I buy five or ten huge poppy plants instead of one? Maybe I'll go tomorrow and buy another and in a year or two I'll have poppyfields forever, without even any rotting soldiers. hehe.
Just thought I'd make sure the entry wasn't TOOO saccharine!
ps, my first entry tonight is here.
1 People have left cute, callous or caring comments on the wench's wordiness!!
