Yesterday Danny and I walked around our yard and garden. I've never enjoyed my yard as much as I have this year. Danny seems to be enjoying it too!!
My tomato plants are kicking butt. I guess I am a little surprised at HOW well they are doing, considering they are in pots. But they have already over doubled in sized, and some have blooms already. Some will probably need to be re-potted in a couple of weeks, after I get out of town and get some bigger pots.
We are excited about our potatoes. They are really starting to peek up at the sides and tops. Every day we are finding new green peeking out.
Oh Smokey..he makes us laugh. He spends HOURS and HOURS in this position he is in in the picture. Head down, tail wagging, with the occasional bird dog "point". I really thought he was starting to loose his mind, because he does this and seems so excited. Turns out...he's watching bugs. The dog loves bugs. In this picture the straw has attracted lots of Roly Polys.
I was THRILLED this year when the Iris I dug from the farm fence line bloomed this year. I've watched and waited for 3 years now. It had belonged to my Grandmother. My Aunt also told me there were some yellow ones and where they used to be. Going to see if I can find any trace of them.
The Poppies are in the middle of their spectacular show! I just love these flowers and was convinced they wouldn't be blooming.
I wonder if I could be a Poppy farmer. A real one..not one of the illegal ones! ;)
