The Green Mountains of Vermont

I once again made the trek north to Montreal yesterday. The scenery had changed quite a bit since my trip at the beginning of May.

Trees are fully leafed out and everything is very green. There were bursts of purple this time. It was a pleasant surprise to see lupines growing randomly along I-89. What a beautiful site! As the road winds up and down, left and right through the back-drop of the Green Mountains the addition of flowers growing wildly is the icing on the cake. I wish I could have taken pictures but I thought it might not be wise to be taking pictures while driving 70 mph. I was able to take a few at a rest stop.

I have made this trip many times and am still awed by the beauty.

Tada! Done!

Digging & planting.....tada! Done for this season. I think. Feeding & watering done for today. Weeds still to come. Time to chill with a glass of wine. After all we need to balance the work with down time, right?

Tomorrow I am hitting the road again. Big sister came in for baby sister's graduation and it's time to go home.

Bees & Blooms

Weather is still not what it should be - cool nights with extreeeeeemely comfortable days. Great for stuff like lettuce but the warm weather crops are in a holding pattern. Oh well, such is the life of a gardener.

A few more shots of what is in bloom......

Graduation Day!

This is it! My baby girl graduated today! Miss Olivia is off enjoying the all night party at her school tonight. In my solitude, the tears are welling.

I really need to thank "Mr. D" (pictured) for all that he has done for all of my girls. He's a kind man who cares about "his" kids. It has not been an easy road but Mr. D was always there. For this I am grateful.

I have great confidence that she will soar. Happy life sweetheart.

It's June?

Brrrr. Somebody forgot to tell the powers that be that it's June! I'm OK with it but what about the tender veggies? They are not doing a thing. No growth at all. It has been 50-60'ish during the day and 40's at night. Will they recover? I dunno.

So with the garden at a standstill.....some feathered friends.
