meanwhile, back at the ranch

the garden just keeps growing.  Flowers are filling into open spots, and vegetables are beginning to look possible!

(Just in case you'd thought I abandoned my garden pursuits, I wanted to assure you that I'm trying to stay rooted...)
I'm particularly excited to see the tomatoes growing stronger, and the squash, too.  The corn and beans I planted together along the fence are gonna be fun...
Here are my first fruits of the season!
I am enchanted by foxgloves, and started these guys from seeds just after moving in, nearly 2 years ago.  Finally, they're lovely.
The columbine is looking good, too--graceful and tall.

And, I just today noticed some Flanders Poppies growing up in the Bachelors Buttons.  Lovely.
