Late Spring

The veggie garden is coming along good. All heirloom plants. The tomatoes have blossoms on them. I'm looking forward to tasting them as I hear they are all delicious.
Trying sweet peppers again this year. Don't have much luck with them but I have my garden in a new spot this year so maybe the sun will cause them to grow better.
Summer Solstice will be here before I know it and of course then the days start getting shorter. I am enjoying the long days of Spring.

Through the screen

The back yard today. I love green things and flowers and restful backyards in the heart of the city. Working on the South yard tomorrow, trying to get it all planted before the heat shows up. Have to dig up some of the bushes the rabbits ate. I decided to keep my dead peach tree and plant Morning Glories around it. I have yellow tulips that turn yellow and orange after a week or so. My honeysuckle vine and clematis are about ready to burst into bloom. Got the hoses and sprinklers set out. Picked up a pretty rose to replace one of the pine trees. Looking for a Bridal Wreath to plant but everywhere I go they don't know what I'm talking about. I wonder if it has a different name these days.
