Sweet Peas Are Starting to Bloom!!

I am so excited!! My Sweet Peas (Lathyrus odoratus) are blooming. What fragrance!


These blooms are from the Winter Elegance Mix. This variety does well early and late. Even Miss Kitty likes our Sweet Peas.


It was well worth the wait. Stay tuned for more adventures with Sweet Peas!



What’s Happening?

Introducing our newest family member – Oakley (who doesn’t like her picture taken!) She is quite the lady and has started learning the skills of country life.


We like our birds!!!! A small showing of our “regulars”.


Hoop house growing! The spinach and cabbage remain delicious!


Let’s not forget Miss Kitty, our tomato transplant supervisor. As quick as the transplants were re-potted, she would playfully paw them out of the pot. She is a very curious kitty!!

Spring  flowers are cheerful! It is a delight seeing colors once again! Real “eye candy” for the soul.



Miss Kitty vs Victory!!

Miss Kitty had a nervous relationship with Victory, during my daughter and granddaughters visit!

Mr. Victory was the perfect gentleman. He gave Miss Kitty a lot of space. There were no flare ups!! Such a beautiful boy!!

I believe we humans could learn a thing or two from his example!
