Dear Family & Friends
I just love this time of the year...most days I'm out in the garden working, sowing, transplanting, mulching, planning, watering, harvesting...then, quickly sneak back to the kitchen to prepare our lunch. By afternoon...back into the garden with more or less the same job. By nightfall, the bed seems to be the best place for a very weary body....but my mind is eagerly looking forward to the morning to start all over again! It's madness!
|Forget about their warty mean look..but really...they are beautiful:)|
In the garden, I enjoy the sight of my garden friends...FROGGIES!! They help me clear up some of the garden slugs and snails...who just can't resist eating my newly sown veggies and plants.
|Our little pear tree is full of blossoms|
The various fruits trees in our garden are putting out so many blooms...one after another. First trees to get covered in flowers were the plums, followed by the deep pink blossoms of Peach, Nectarine, Pear, Cherries, Apples and lastly.. the Quince trees. The bees are so busy visiting every blooms so our trees can set lots of fruits for us to eat later:)
|Miss honey bee is busy gathering food from flowers and pollinating it at the same time|
It's so noisy out there in the garden with the sound of buzzing bees and the excitable birds who are busy building their nest out of the cut grass mulching that I lay on my garden beds.
|Bright yellow of dandelion weeds|
There's so many colours popping up in the garden too. Both from the self seeding weeds and the purposely planted flowering bulbs and plants...even my vegetables are now throwing colours as they start bolting into seeds. No, I don't colour coordinate my garden...nature just colours them as they please....with reds, yellow, pink, purple, blue and whites. I like it whatever way:) Even a mix match ones:)
Wishing you a good week and remain blessed as always.
