The Hostas have made their annual return! I am always thrilled with their arrival. When we lived in Florida we didn't have anything like them. When we moved up here I knew I had to have some. So, my little collection is a Mother's Day gift here, a birthday gift there and some saved from the dry, dying plants at various plant sales. R planted her Lily of the Valley last year and it came up too. It's way over to the left and out of this particular picture, but it's there. When the flower came out R wanted me to smell it. Well, that little sucker is only about five inches from the ground and this body can only bend so far. I went for it and I don't regret the creaking in my bones and the mud on my knees. The scent was great! Now if I can get her to plant her Bleeding Hearts that are still in pots two years after purchase...
See our gardening flamingos? They are ready for some veggies in the raised beds. We made a trip to the Farmer's Market today for R to pick up some tomato plants and an eggplant. I don't know if the flamingos will see green beans this year. The Japanese Beetles had a field day with them last year. Not too sure if we're up to that let down again. Wait, R just said we are gluttons for punishment, so we will probably be planting beans.
What is that massive mushroom shape? R decided to try her hand at baking bread. It was wonderful! It all works out very well - she likes to bake and L & RL like to eat it, so it's a
win-win situation here.We haven't forgotten this is a knitting blog too. As you can see from the posted pictures, the weather isn't really great for photo ops. So, when the sun comes out, so will the finished projects and camera! Adios and Happy Cinco de Mayo!
