Back Home

We left early Thursday for a long weekend in Seattle and returned this morning to a completely new garden. At this time of year it is amazing how the trees fill out in a matter of days.
The Sweetspire was bare stems on Thursday and now is completely filled out with leaves.
The lettuce was shivering and now is ready for harvest.
We have hummingbirds in the coral honeysuckle, the salvias and every other red flowering plant in our gardens.


This time of year is the best.
Well, except for the pressure to plant, the nightly aches and other gardening complaints.
