My stacking pots. I love my pansies!

Looking good!

My spiral rock art garden. My carrots are filling in the middle
and the spinach is filling in the around the outside! 

My other plot. Potatoes in front, California poppies on the outsides, two
zucchini plants and five pumpkin plants. The caged area has my sunflower
saplings. I covered them to keep the birds from snacking on them! The
strawberry plants in the other half have hundreds of berries!! Can't wait!

My Brother Visited from the Mid West! I Enjoyed Showing Him God's Country!!!

I had the pleasure of sharing my backyard with my brother. We went to the Tulip Festival and looked at amazing fields of flowers  We went to Deception Pass for a picnic. We walked and talked and had fun looking for pretty rocks! We walked out on the was high!!! We did
Seattle, the Space Needle and Pikes Market. I asked the fishmonger to throw fish for us and he did! Good times, good times!! We ate good food, talked and had many a cup a joe together. We drank green smoothies worked in the garden and enjoyed the crystal clear blue skies along with an abundance of sunshine. One of the highlights for me was when he joined me at the Farmer's Market to sell my artwork. He helped me set up my tables and display of I enjoyed his company and I am thankful he got to come see me! (I love you bro and I am praying for complete health for you)   Here are a few of the three hundred photos we took during his stay.

Nature Right out My Back Door!

Garden Update!

Pumpkin plants doing great!

My carrots are coming up inside my spiral rock art. 
Spinach around the outside is doing good as well. 
Red leaf lettuce growing!

This section has some posies! Iceland poppies, pansies, echinacea. 
My red onions are all poking through the ground and my second
planting of radishes are up! 

My pansies are thriving!! Gorgeous!!

Sugar peas climbing up my trellis fast!!

I have two rows of California poppies in the other raised
bed. Along with my zucchini plants, yukon gold potatoes,
and the pumpkins. Two rows of sunflowers are along
the center between the strawberry plants. I am hoping for
at least a couple of sunflower plants to make it. The birds eat the seedlings as 
soon as they pop up. 

Hundreds of blossoms on the strawberry plants!
