Mid-May Flowers

We’re eating salad from the garden. The arugula and spinach are delicious but I’m not as big a fan of the mixed salad greens. I did make homemade pizza and topped it with the arugula and it was great.

You can see the peas are growing and there are several pods that are almost full-sized. Catherine is quite interested in them. I think she remembers eating peas out of the garden last year.

Finally the columbine are blooming and they’re beautiful. I’m loving wandering through the garden each day looking for the latest emerging flower.

Lots can happen in a week (or a month)

So someone commented on my lack of posting and I want to remedy that. After a week of warm weather in Seattle, so much can change. We were vacationing in Hawaii for a week and when you don’t see the day to day changes, after a week, it looks like a lot has happened.

My salad greens are going strong.

I like this picture that John took better but it doesn’t show as much

The blue pots finally have something in them.

Two plants that I’d never seen before I met Colette (visit GardenEssentia.com) are blooming:
Fothergilla

Also my Chilean glory vine has started to bloom

Finally, John has been working on hanging some lights so we can enjoy our lovely garden in the warm summer evenings that are surely on the way.
