Elizabeth has been very busy for the last couple of months. One of the things that is occupying her is the gardening. She grows green and other stuff for eating in some ground she keeps fenced off from deer, rabbits and groundhogs. And me. -:o/=
Sometimes she lets me in. On those occasions, she’s always watching me. Sometimes though, the gate is either left open, or the wind catches it and blows it open just enough for me to get in without anyone noticing. If I’m very sneaky, I can usually find something I like to eat growing in the ground, and I can gently and ever so carefully tug it out. It makes for a very tasty little snack through the day.
Last evening, Elizabeth took her new camera out and we did a bit of a tour so you could see some of what’s going on. Hope you enjoy a walk through the garden with us!
I really love Lettuce. It’s my favourite garden produce. I asked Elizabeth to show some she’s got underway now. She started these in the house, and both she and Kay have planted seeds in the ground, too. We need a lot because they like it, too. Doesn’t that look yummy? I helped water the garden while she took pictures. Didn’t mean to… just kinda worked out that way….
Here’s a picture of the new garden from the yard. Elizabeth is still working in it because of the late spring we had, but lots is growing in it already.
Now I’ll take you to Elizabeth’s long garden:
I found another garden growing on a tree stump. Elizabeth says it is something from the mint family (also tasty) but she thinks it looks a bit like stinging nettles. I thought it looked pretty and asked her to take a photo. I have a good eye, but I have trouble with all the camera buttons…
Kay has a little garden, too:
If they turn and sit the other way, then they can see Al’s and Joanne’s much classier looking bench:
I have other priorities than gardening, though…
Thanks for joining me on the Garden Tour. See you next week! ~:o)=
