A photo blog connecting life and the natural world in and beyond the garden.
More than half the year a four-season garden is dominated by neutral shades
Color is but a fleeting memory in the gardener’s mind’s eye
But then it begins…
The plans a gardener has labored over throughout the winter months now are birthed
Every conceivable shade and color combine to create our garden canvas
But our minds never rest
We are already mixing color and planning future portraits
Harvesting fresh herbs and vegetables from the garden and creating amazing culinary dishes has become a daily event in our home.
It began with the radishes and mescaline
And had now encompassed snow peas, cauliflower and string beans.
Soon the heirloom tomatoes will be bursting with flavor and peppers will be stuffed with cream and mozzarella cheese.
Container gardens adorn the back deck some filled with parsley, rosemary red leaf lettuce and violas!
My dream is to double the size of the garden next year but alas, until work hours are eliminated an expansion of two or three feet will have to suffice!
