There is no photo to share. There was a thief in my garden on Tuesday morning. He stole the first big red strawberry of the season. Even when I told him not to, to leave it for the girls, he picked it and ate it. Who do you think it was?
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.
Finally the columbine are blooming and they’re beautiful. I’m loving wandering through the garden each day looking for the latest emerging flower.
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.
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.
I love the spring when the blossoms on the fruit trees are starting to bloom. John took these pictures of Catherine’s Cherry tree today and I think they’re beautiful. Hopefully she’ll get more than 7 cherries this year (that’s how many were on it last year). For those of you who don’t know, we plant a tree for each grandchild when they are born. Catherine’s is a grafted cherry tree with 5 different varieties on it.
We’re starting to see the signs of spring in the garden and can’t wait until things are blooming.
The daffodils are starting to come up.
The raspberry buds are starting to open up.
And the peas I started in the cold frame are up and looking good.
I started my arugula, mixed greens and spinach and I notice that even after yesterday’s spring snow they are starting to sprout. You can’t see them here but I’ll take a picture when they get a little bit bigger.
