Burrrr!!!!! It's a much cooler Tuesday here today! Sweatshirt and jacket weather but no freezes in the forecast so all is good.
Just when I thought the daffodils were all done here ...... we have a few late bloomers to make us smile.
I'm pretty sure these will be the last ones this season ... but then I said that last week too :)
Tulips are blooming now... I don't have many this year so I need to plant more of them in the fall as they only last a year or two here.
The last 2 pictured ones always remind me of Poppies when they bloom :)
As you can see in the photos I still don't have all of the mulch spread out. It's been hard for me to take it easy and just do a little bit at a time... but I know I have too. It's getting there though.
I have cut my first herb harvest of the season...
...this is just a small bit of the harvest. It's bee balm and as typical of any member of the mint family it has gotten so thick and spread that it needed a good thinning out already. I'll be using these leaves in tea mixes later on when the other herbs are ready for harvest.
The lilacs are beautiful this year... they smell so good. I just had to bring some inside. When this bush , which is the only only I have left, is done blooming this year it needs a major pruning. Which will unfortunately reduce next years blooms but it has to be done.
I've also been cleaning out bird houses and getting them hung back up. Some will be moved to different locations this year as I have plans for new beds where they are and I don't want my constant presence interrupting the mama birds.
Nothing going on in the veggie garden this week. I was going to start transplanting some of the starts out there. But with the colder weather I'm putting it off for another week. It's still early :)
My drink for today is in the big Snowman cup. With the cold the hands hurt more this morning so it was nice to wrap them around the big cup of hot coffee. The art in the background in my WIP for the week .
Today's Random Thoughts are...
So that's it for today... now I'm off to make some more soaps... Farmers Market is getting close to opening.
