gardening going on! imagine this bed, beetroot, parsnips, sweet corn. . . I can see it in my minds eye. . .
rhododendron, flowering away
this azalea just flowered too, its gets better every year this one.
and the rhubarb survived, I still haven't tasted any on if yet.
and the poppies just before they burst into flower. . . . .

Those poppies are ADORABLE! I want to touch them, they look so fuzzy. Teehee

Let us know how the rhubarb tastes! YUMMERS! I have not had any in years.

Glad your internet is back! It's awful to not be 'connected' isn't it? :-)

Your new bed(s) looks so yummy and ready to go. It has been raining non-stop here and I haven't been able to convince myself to spend too much time out getting soaked, so my poor beds are still waiting...

You are back! YAY!

Looks like your garden season is slightly ahead of ours -- poppies not yet that advanced, but still am hoping for some!

wildside said...

Ooh, wait -- I see the neighbor has her large poppies in bloom. Mine are the annuals and just aren't here quite yet...

Good luck with your vegetables! I am fighting a war this summer - slugs! - but I hope I'll be able to grown vegetables next year.

I was wonder what has came of you.

your flowers are very pretty. I posted some Sunday the 25th.
Nothing compare to yours.

Phew, I thought we'd lost you for a while there. Glad to see you're back and... aaa... blooming!

welcome back. i've missed strolling through your garden with my morning cuppa. i'm going to borrow from your garden plan and make all my veggie plots in slightly raised beds, i think.

Lowa, the poppies are just beautiful with their dilver grey heads, they've burts into orange now. the rhubarb remains untasted but I'll let you know.
TLC, well we've not had enough rain here, and you won't often find me saying that!
Wildside, I'm back after more problems today .. .arrgghh!
Katarina, the war with slugs is nver over!
Dora, I'm still here!
Michael, blooming and busy!
Grannyfiddler, I like the raised beds, keeps it tidier.

We have rhubarb coming out our ears!! I've stewed it into a sauce and put it over vanilla ice cream. Yum! No time to make pie crust but I'd like to (strawberry-rhubarb pie..yum!!) I'll freeze some and make it when there's more time.
Internet problems are so frustrating...especially when you're 68% addicted to blogging. Only 68%? :)
Beautiful Rhodies and Azaleas!
I'm imagining your veggie garden all green and growing. Lovely!
