One Flower Wednesdays

Happy faces for how I feel. Spring is finally here and I can get outside and work in my garden.

Worked a bit on my watercolour quilt top.


Day one of my garden. Planted potatoes, peas, carrots, lettuce, spinach & basil. I have to go to town and buy onion sets and garlic to plant today. Corn, beans, and squashes after the weekend. I planted leeks that did not grow very well last year, but they came back as well as flat leaf parsley.


I see a poplar tree in the middle of the strawberries I have to dig out, and the poor spruce tree was really damaged by the hail last year. Here's wishing for a better summer this year! 
Oh, I see I caught a hawk soaring.


Full moon last night. I will try and take another picture tonight if it isnt too cloudy, but will use a tripod.

That is one happy flower!!!! And, I find your watercolour quilt very interesting. The blue fabric is fabulous. That is also one fabulous garden. My veggie patch is very small, the flowers have taken over!

You have a nice and big garden area. We still have too much rain to plant anything yet. I am itching to get my hands in the dirt!
