I'm exhausted, and feel so overwhelmed..... so I went antique shopping today LOL. Didn't buy anything except a little leather train case for $8 to use in my sewing area, but I really had NO business leaving this house today, there's so much to be done around here.
In lieu of anything truly productive going on, I'll just show you some photos I took this morning while "walking the estate"... doesn't that sound so much better than "picking up dog poop"?
I let my colder weather seedlings sit outside a spell, below are the artichokes.
Here's my broccoli seedlings, pathetic and leggy as they are... although I can tell that the "Piricicaba" broccoli are much larger and healthier looking than the "Purple Sprouting" broccoli. Need to make a note of that for next year.
Yay! The Forsythia bloomed - this is the first thing in the yard to bloom every year.
Below, the grass ( I use that term loosely) is turning green!
I neglected to put in an order of garlic last fall, so I only planted what's below that I had from last year's harvest, but they are doing well.
Below, Iris is peeking up - I'm glad now that I got those perennials hacked back a few weeks ago.
PEAS! (look closely)
I have no idea what this is, I'm not a bulb gal - I just had a bunch and let the kids dig them in a couple of years ago, I can tell you it's really short!
And what's this? Did Charlie Sheen get an endorsement deal? LOL "Where Winners Eat"!
ah, no... flip the bag over and it's a photo of Michael Phelps :)
Forecast tonight - cold, windy and storms all night and tomorrow... looks like I'll be working inside!
