Bluebird Volunteer

This winter's rain did an amazing job finding seeds from plants in the garden and washing them to a new location to "volunteer" to grow.  This plant is a volunteer from a bed which is about eight feet away.  As a matter of fact, I have so many of these delightful surprise plants, I am nourishing them with plans to transplant when they are bigger.  This little plant is growing among my irises right now.

Cosmos




I've planted cosmos before in the garden.  But then I forgot about it.  I saw some starters at the garden center and decided to add them to the garden again. I planted them at the end of the garden at the base of sunflowers.

Berry Berry Good



After the first large strawberry was nabbed in the middle of the night, I've put the plants under cage.  Now these few first berries can vine ripen safely.  Based on what I saw today, tomorrow might be a very berry day.

The Artichoke You Didn't Eat



I love when the artichoke finally blooms.  It's flower looks as good as it tastes!

On the Rocks!

It's not unusual to find stacked rocks at the beach, on public paths or in the garden.  I'm a fan!
