JP and I decided to take advantage of the beautiful spring evening time today and sat in our rocking chairs on the front porch. JP has been under the weather with a chest cold type thing for over a week so I'm sure it did him good to be someplace other than stuck inside. We took a little walk down to the peach trees to see little baby fruits. They're so cute and this year we have so many we're going to have to thin the fruit to no more than one per 8 inches. It's exciting to finally be seeing fruit. Speaking of fruit, I picked the first of the strawberries today and we shared a bowl for dessert. They were good. Now that I'm uploading the pictures for this post I realized that I must have deleted the pictures of our baby peaches, although I don't remember seeing them download from the camera. Dag nab it!!! Well, trust me they are so cute and I'll get more pictures when we do the thinning.
Daisy gets to go out with us when we're in the front because she's the only one who is off leash trained. She loves it, you can look at her and tell that she knows she's getting to do something that the others don't. I got her to pose in front of the Pink Painted Daisies that are starting to bloom. Please don't eat the Daisies! Anyone remember that T.V. show?
Here is our future garden. They have been hardening off for two weeks, they're ready to go in the ground. I plan to get these tomatoes, peppers, basil, Thai basil and oregano plants in the ground next week along with my seed plants.
While we were relaxing, there were birds singing and a nice breeze blowing. It was just so nice. Here are the visitors to the feeder we saw. We got buzzed by a hummingbird but I had already put the camera up.
I had to cut this amaryllis. I just couldn't leave it outside. I like fresh cut flowers, any kind really, but especially when they come from our garden.
Special blessings to you all from all of us in the holler.
