To the garden we go…

Lavendar, overwintered from last summer.

“If the day and the night are such that you greet them with joy, and life emits a fragrance like flowers and sweet-scented herbs, is more elastic, more starry, more immortal- that is your success.”  -Henry David Thoreau

While there are not a large number of things blooming here yet, I took some shots of those that are putting out their showy petals.  I give you…

Foxgloves, transplant from Todd’s mother’s flower garden.

Closeup; love the insides of these flowers. They stated out lightly colored and deepen with each day.
Blue flag (Iris). Divided and transplanted so many of these due to our patio renovation project last month; this is the only bloom so far…
Yarrow, new transplant purchased at Friendship’s Folk and Flowers from Garfield Community Farm.
Leeks going to seed, can’t wait to see these flowers! Anyone want any leek seeds, let me know!
Sundrops, purchased from Sylvania Natives at the Phipp’s Conservatory Plant Sale. My son picked this plant out and it seems to be thriving. I am hoping to continue to add more and more natives to our garden and beds in years to come.
The garden! Not doing as well as I had hoped but at least some things are growing. Dug out the very urban cement block border ane replaced with stones found in the flower beds of the Estate during our patio and retaining wall renovation project. We also tore out the brick walkway and replaced with old pavers we hammered into pieces; we are trying to grow grass between them, hence the furry grey coating on the path.
Three Sisters bed. Yep, trying it again! Blue corn, green beans, squash, watermelon and cucumbers intermingled with some flowers. Keep your fingers crossed!!!

Feenel, started from seed my me and transplanted.
