brrr

70 degrees fahrenheit – warm – until you toss in a persistent breeze.   then it is not such a great night for a baseball game.  however it does not bother the daylilies.  time to concentrate on that list of seeds.  and get it down to something that will fit into the garden.    three images of She Who Must Be Obeyed x Bagana…   and yes SWMBO that is why it was a baseball game night.

greens

the garden greens with spring.  the soil is loosened and nearly ready for planting in one bed.  and another is coming along and it will soon be ready for planting.  seeds have been recorded in a spreadsheet and soon they too will be sorted, chosen and ready to plant.  and the camera is back from the shop.  no more tablet pictures.  five images…

  

another day

we are one more day into spring.  we have a way to go measuring by the calendar.   perhaps not so far measuring by the temperature.  i suspect summer like temperatures and weather will be here sooner than we plan.  today the seedling bed got another step closer to planting.  it got some rough raking with a pointy three tine rake.   i need to finish this bed and do one more to plant the first batch of seeds.  and then repeat the process with two more beds.  and finish sorting and selecting seeds.  one step at a time.  one seed at a time.  three images – Coho Mojo…

 

 

spring

it was a good day to start cleaning the weeds out of the seedling bed.  to make room for a new crop of flowers.  and seed sorting has started.  it is time to pick the ones that will get planted.  if there was more room there still would not be enough room.  and it would be a terrible problem.  more flowers than i would know what to do with.  a problem that would be great fun to solve.  or attempt to solve.  for now i will concentrate on getting ready to plant and to get these seeds in the ground.  three images of Ginger Swallowtail…

to begin

is it easier to say what is not ?   or to say what is ?   or to say what is too ?  how does one walk in the garden ?  and not see the flowers for the garden ?   or not see the garden for the flower ?  four images…  and the framing of some context…

beacon

something like a lighthouse.  except in the garden.  and who gets the message ?  it is intended for pollinators.  usually specific pollinators.  and sometimes guest visitors too.  meanwhile we come to watch too.   three images…
