Photo Friday


I guess I should post this at Christmas, but I felt like posting it today.
A Polaroid moment when I was four.

Funny how little red wagons are all the rage in gardens now.
Great for hauling plants, tools, whatever.

I wish I had a digital camera so I could better keep you posting on the activity in my garden.
I hope to buy a camera in July.
But it's hard to adequately explain the excitement I feel when I see little green shoots breaking the soil.

Wednesday at dusk, I went out to water.
I really soaked the ground where my asparagus was planted.
But inwardly I was thinking, "gosh, is this ever going to come up?"
I mean, did I water too much and the crowns rotted?
Did I water too shallow and the water didn't penetrate the soil?
Did I wait too long to plant?

But overnight, six tiny asparagus shot up a full three inches!
I was giddy when I saw them--it's like coins falling out of your Keno machine in Vegas!
(although I heard the slots don't do that anymore. Shame. That was the best part).

Let's hope Mr. Snail doesn't slither out to that part of the yard...

Loving the red wagon.

Got some squash plant seedlings from a co-worker. Finally remembered to bring them home tonight. Remembered as I stood in front of the tres moderne Seattle library that it's the last night that my super-duper nice bus driver will be on my route.

He and I have talked birds, Seattle, and gardening. I hopped on the bus and he gave me his big welcoming grin and a hello and I turned over the squashlings to his tender care.

He was delighted. Me too! Happy Weekend.

My son totally loves going to Oma's house and just doing any and everything with his red wagon... I think we'll need to start looking around Craigslist for one.

My one basil plant is happy... with a pee happy, fence wrecking poochie in the backyard, I do not yet have a fruit/veg garden. One day though.

By the way, I tagged you on my blog for a 5 things Meme. I hope you can join in the sillyness.

Have a great weekend!
