my garden walk~

 
 
 
 
 
one of my favorite things to do is to swing by the orchard for a snack, I had been eating blueberries for a month, until the deer discovered them and wiped me out. I finally striped all the apricots, nothing better then eating warm sweet fruit in the sun! I am wild over nectarines, this is the first house we have owned where they excel, arctic is bright red with ultra sweet white flesh, I eat a half a dozen a day, sticky from head to toe slurping them down while I work outside.
 
 
 
I have 6 varieties of apples, I will have hundreds to bake with this summer!
 
 
you can spy Katie patiently waiting for me stop eating and get on with our garden day...
 
 
my entry is planted in blue, yellow and white plants only
 
 
 
 
 
while planting this morning I look up to see my neighbors kids in the tree, there were at least 6 of them, they butted heads and leapt out off 6' high branches. they may look cute but living with goats is a nightmare, the babies scream like kids, they must have at least forty of them, the parents are off working, meaning its a real daycare, and not what I signed up for! they have hundreds of acres to roam, they choose to live right on the property line surrounding of our house, not a good thing if you relish peace and quiet...
 
 
the rose garden still needs lots of work, I am hand watering 100s of bushes a day, which means I am very intimate with all the beauty! I can't begin to tell you how divine the air smells! from a distance you get wafts of warm English roses when you pass by on the tractor, even my husband, who is not a visual person at all commented how beautiful the garden was!
