flora update

More veggie rows are in within the garden enclosure, some boughten marigolds mark the end of the bean rows. That's an asparagus trench to the far left. It's still not much to look at, is it? Here, meanwhile, is a veggie garden that's gorgeous. I don't know if I can take the pressure. Precision lettuce?! Oh well. . . . the daffodils are out in full force. This one is gargantuan!This patch of white daffodils is the only patch I planted of all the same [named] kind: Thalia. They smell heavenly. Luther bit off the first bloom a few days ago, but there are more open today - and more to come, looks like.
Out back, the pod people have arrived.A couple of days ago, little green pips popped up all over the forest floor. You can see two of them in the picture, and a larger specimen that is already turning into a pod person parasol, otherwise known as a Mayapple. They'll cover the forest floor in a few weeks!

It IS a magical land here, Jennifer - I pinch myself most days, just to see if I'm awake - or dreaming! Happy, happy Easter to you.
