There is a male cardinal outside that has been singing so vibrantly and sweetly all morning. I wonder if he is calling out to his mate.
I wanted to go outside and get a photo of him, but the pupsters started barking as I neared the door, so I had to take a photo through the window so as not to scare him off.
I am now seeing so much green emerging out on the patio. Such a welcome sight.
I lie awake at night and think about plants I want to add to the patio. What colors I want to focus on. How I might arrange the chairs. l fall asleep with these this in mind. Such pleasant thoughts to lull me to sleep.
I am seeing this sedum (or is it a succulent?) in various pots on the patio. I don’t know if little pieces dropped into various containers, or if I added them. But they sure are hardy little plants because they are scattered here and there and everywhere.
This particular galvanized container has lemon balm that has come back every year I’ve lived here, so I hope it comes back too.
I snipped away at the brown mint that has encircled a container many times. You know how mint grows and grows and is so bountiful.
I have just about tended to every existing container out there. I can’t snip for long because I’m still having carpal tunnel issues.
I’m anxiously watching Jade, my Jade butterfly tree, waiting for green nubs to show on the branches. You can see a little bit of Jade in the above photo with Mr. Sun.
I’m also seeing creeping jenny in various pots. Last year I had to replace all of it. But maybe I won’t have to this year.
What’s going on in your garden space? Anything showing up yet?
