These pictures were taken earlier in the week. Before the sky opened up and bucketed down rain on us. There's nothing quite like springtime in the Pacific Northwest. Sun, rain, sun, wind, hail...all in the same day!
Our red poppy has popped! We don't have very many, so they are special to us.
Our foxglove garden is also doing great. Dad loves foxgloves. So do I.
I ended up spending some time babysitting the vegetables. We have not yet planted the basil and parsley because mom wants the weather to be a bit warmer. No matter what, they are going in the ground on Memorial Day weekend. Mom's got to have her basil and I need to do whatever I can to make sure it's warm enough. Even if I have to lend some fur to the project.
My woofie Grete is my pal. I know I'm blowing raspberries at her in this picture...but remember that raspberries are soft and sweet. My Grete is soft and sweet too. She takes care of me and won't let anyone mess with me. I'm hoping she'll help me inspect the new composter that mom and dad brought home. I think it's a little strange, but I'll get used to it. Anything that's good for the garden is ok by me.
After a day of work in the yard, bath time is always the best time of day. Hope you get to enjoy your garden this weekend. Plant some nip for me, ok?
My linkie thingie didn't work last week so hopefully it will work this week so I can see what's going on with you!
