One of the simplest pleasures in my life right now is my garden. I love to take daily walks through my yard to see what is blooming and growing, and to see what little creatures might be visiting. Today I thought I'd invite you on a virtual walk with me. All these photos were taken in my garden...
taking a moment to find joy in the little things
I love growing my own food This year I have a strawberry bed, cucumbers, lettuce, zucchini, green beans, raspberries, tomatoes, corn, peppers and carrots....as well as an herb garden.
We have frogs, frogs and more frogs. Right now they are pretty tiny and they like to hide in the plants. If you don't look carefully, you'll miss seeing them.
This really tall plant is likely just a weed. I couldn't tell it apart from the plant it's growing next to for a while, but now that it's taller, I can tell it's a weed.
I managed to winter these two red geraniums in my garage. I'm surprised they made it, but they are getting bigger and fuller each day. I found the two pink ones on clearance at Lowe's and rescued them. I didn't realize they were pink until they started blooming. So now I have a strange combination in this pot.
These two strips you see are actually roots and they are in my front yard. They are getting bigger and bigger and more and more tree shoots are growing off them. I don't even know what tree they belong to, but I want them out. I just don't want to put in the sweat and hard work it will take to get them out.
