The flowers just bloom and bloom. I’ve had to go out on the patio several times and cut back all the plants that are growing so rapidly.
April Showers Bring May Flowers:
The many days of rain gave all the plants a shot of adrenaline.
The hedge hog watches slyly over the sage and mint and sweet potato vine, perhaps watching for predators.
Aren’t the various shades of green herbs pretty above? I just love the yellow and green of the sage plant.
And then there’s the deep purple sweet potato vine, which grows at a very rapid pace.
The bunny, largest of them all, even got buried in the plants and herbs. I’ve cut them back enough that it can watch over the rest of the gardens.
The rabbit sits among the yellow and purple sweet potato vine.
Poor Charlie Ross, after having so many teeth extracted, often has his tongue or a tooth protruding. I find it kind of cute.
He is taunted by the sounds of an ornery squirrel chattering up in the tree.
The squirrels and critters don’t faze Abi. She just isn’t interested.
This mom gave her a rather primitive hair cut. I can’t keep them still long enough to make their haircuts look halfway decent.
I brought these violets over from the little blue house last year. Some look at them as weeds. But I like the symmetry of their leaves.
Where some see weeds, I see beauty.
And the flowers bloom. One right after the other. When one shows signs of fading, another bloom springs up to take its place.
Such is the world of gardening.
