bar's open

So you say...
where is the wench?
Well, it has not been a good season for the gardener
to be in the garden
too cold
too wet
too muddy


But my oh my...
the garden doesn't really need me
to begin


I have also been very busy
selling our home in Galena
it sold in one day!
and we had to be out in 16 days
..only one day in May to book the mover
so I have been packing and schlepping
to our new home in Galena
The new house has a beautiful garden
....that needs expansion...hee hee


So now that all things have calmed down for awhile
I have been weeding frantically
even kneeling mud
to give my beauties less competition
from thistle and bind weed and dandy lions
what a job
for an old broad...can I say that word?
of course I can....
With all the rain everything is so lush
...looks like I am quite the green thumb
....the garden wench did nothing except leave it be
God did the rest
faithfully calling the seeds to germinate
the lilies to send up shoots
the trees to leaf out
everything just continued
while I was gone....



Of course it was a joy to drag out my old garden relics
to adorn the garden space
what would the garden be without
colored glass
wind chimes
rusty things
and little wooden chairs?


I was shocked to see the clematis growing
into the service berries
oh my

sorry the picture is sideways...
it's been a while since I have posted


But the dearest thing that is happening because of all this overgrowth of everything
all at once
it is lush and glorious
for birds to build nests
and little bunnies and squirrels
to scamper around in
..oh the true joy of the garden

...the critters

My yard, my garden is bird central this spring
truly an audio delight

the air conditioning man just came after servicing our unit
and he declared....those were his words.....:)
that he has seen many gardens in our area....but mine
hands down was the best
a true paradise.....
...oh my slutty muddy heart went wild wonderful to have touched someone
with my garden
Oh....he added
I think I saw a skunk out in the back by the fence
...oh....I said
I know....I smelled him too

.....oh well
