Have you seen a magnolia that looks like a shrub. Well I have about six magnolia's and they are all trees except this one. It doesn't even look like it wants to be a tree. It is getting ready to bloom - way before the magnolia trees.
The veggies are starting to pop up. This is butter beans planted by seeds on the 5th of April and they are looking good. It sure didn't take long for them to pop out.
I planted more seeds and plants this Easter weekend. I felt I needed to get everything into the ground before the 15th. I managed to get 65-70 hills from seed and plant this weekend alone.
Butter beans, snap beans, peas, yellow and white squash, red yellow and green bell pepper, jalapeno, tomato, cucumber, eggplant, watermelon and cantalope. I probably left out something. I have a good variety.
This is all the flowers I have to show today. My new bed has taken a back seat to the veggie garden this week.
The weather here has turned out to be just beautiful. Plenty of sunshine. Everything around here is starting to pop out with the pleasant temps and rain and sun.
This time of year just makes you feel good.
