Garden Pests

Every year I get unwanted visitors to my garden. They like to party in the flower beds. They’re flamboyant. At night you can practically hear them sliming everything up and slowly killing the pretty flowers. Go elsewhere, I say!

Early Bloomer

Here is a purple coneflower that can’t wait. Every year they’ve gotten earlier and earlier. They used to bloom in mid-august. I don’t think it’s due to global warming. I think it’s because of the extended chilly spring that we had here. The plants are mighty confused.

The Chives Have Arrived

chives in my gardenSpent part of this afternoon, when Special Agent M got home from school, cleaning in the garden. Today was one of those perfect spring days, with abundant sunshine and summer teaser temps. I took the opportunity to clean the piles of leaves that pass for mulch out of the beds of my herb garden. I’ve still got a month until I can plant basil and tomatoes. There are some odd looking plants (peppers?) springing from my compost dump. Cleared away one pile of leaves and found young, very fragrant oregano. Next to it, CHIVES!

Omelets anyone? Maybe chive and cheese biscuits?

Calendar Says Spring…

weather says otherwise. Someone should tell the birds. They’re busy singing opera.
