the garden keeps on going without me. The blooms I noticed today in the garden made me smile. Of course I feel a bit guilty for the neglect it has endured but it seems to be suffering through it with grace.
Even the veggies have been growing like gangbusters over the past couple of days. My guess is that this ‘Lemon Boy’ Tomato will be the first large variety I will be harvesting this year. And if you look closely just behind the Cucumber bloom you will notice a nice 3-4″ cuke forming! The yellow squash is being difficult this year, they are getting blossom rot and withering up. But this one might actually make it to a decent size.
Then there are all the things that I’m anticipating. Look Janet, the Pineapple Lily I picked up at Brent and Becky’s Bulbs is going to bloom! Cleome has self-seeded in the Rose Garden which is a bit odd since I haven’t grown any in a few years. Sorry that I’ve been MIA for a few days. I’ve been busy caring for my grandfather who fell earlier this week. Thankfully he didn’t suffer any breaks or fractures but his hip is bruised and sore still. However my attention has been taken away from the garden and the blogasphere temporarily. It’s hard to be away for a few days and get caught back up so bear with me please. ~ Racquel 🙂
