I love my gardens in the spring. They are lush and green with so many things blooming, but don't get too close. They look great from afar, but up close they are a bit wild. I have so many invasive perennials taking over. We leave for California in eight days and I am desperately trying to get yard work caught up before departing so I don't come home to a jungle. I'm about half done with the edging, one of my least favorite garden tasks. Too bad it's not once and done. I find it hard to keep up with it.
Poppies are one of my favorites. Pretty now but when they are done blooming the foliage dies back and are very scrappy looking. The seed pods left behind do add some interest to the garden. This is a very invasive variety.
The start of this wisteria came from my parents' farm many years ago. Beautiful, but also a very invasive variety. Shoots come up all over the garden and in the grass.
While I was dragging my feet hooking the bear on my Crooked River challenge rug, I needed to pull a few loops so grabbed the first pattern I found and transferred it to linen. Just a little 8" x 10" mat that is not as pinky looking in person.
Off to the doctor today for a Medicare "wellness" visit. I have had this pain in my arm for months, but have been told I cannot discuss such an issue, that the key word is "well". What the heck? If he could diagnose my pain, wouldn't I be more "well" . . . lol?
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
