What’s Emerging in the May Garden?

I’m glad you asked! Let’s start with the herbs. My herbs are mostly decorative, though I could use them for cooking if I only remembered. First up are the chives. It won’t be long before the buds open and attract bees into their blossoms.… Continue Reading “What’s Emerging in the May Garden?”

Spring Gardening with Benji

It’s that time of year for gardening to begin in earnest, with planning, pruning, and the moving of shrubs from one place to another. Then there’s the preparation of the soil in the garden beds, to furnish good ground for new seeds to flourish.… Continue Reading “Spring Gardening with Benji”

For this week’s Sunday Stills challenge I thought I’d take you on a tour of my backyard garden much of which lies under the shade of giant Douglas Fir trees. When we moved to our house a few years ago the backyard was rather… Continue Reading “Under the Trees in my Garden”

Summer Harvest and Little Green Apples!

As summer is winding down I have to admit there wasn’t much to harvest from the garden this year. The strawberries were disappointing and their bed has already been stripped to be given to something more worthy. There were only a handful of raspberries,… Continue Reading “Summer Harvest and Little Green Apples!”

Planting with Benji

Yesterday we visited Flower World to buy Benji a new bed. Or perhaps bath tub. I decided to borrow it to carry home the plants I bought while I was there. I bought the plants to fill up the bucket I got at a… Continue Reading “Planting with Benji”
