It looks like the "orchard" pruning we had done on the apple tree was effective. The apples are growing nicely. We've had a mixture of rain and hot weather for weeks so everything is blooming and happy ... and I'm starting to reclaim the lawn from the dandelions that attempted a hostile takeover while the property was vacant last summer. (This war is not over yet, but there are lots of dead dandelions and the new ones are very small so it looks like progress.)
First time growing strawberries in planters - so far so good.
A few are ready for breakfast every morning. And they're easy to pick.
Nasturtiums - one of my favorites.
A wine barrel full of color for the price of a $0.99 seed packet.
Another favorite - lilies. Now I want more in different colors.
Not sure where he came from!
Apples doing their thing.
The jungle. Truly.
Good old bedding plants.
