I'm about to reveal something personal. For as long as I can remember (maybe 2nd grade or earlier) I have had an uncanny ability to find 4 leafed clovers. I don't even have to look for them. Sometimes I'm just walking and I happen to look down, and right there is one. Sometimes, I'll just get a weird feeling like one is around, and I look down and there it is. I've stopped picking them, because I've found so many. I just figure I'll leave them for someone else. So, today I found the first 2 four leafers this year and I took pictures:
In other yard news: The zinnias and basil are getting bigger, but may be a little sun starved. They're somewhat leggy. I guess I'll just slowly harden them off and put them in the ground in a week or so:
The Easter lilies are budding up nicely:
The pink roses are blooming:
Oh, and I'm really excited that my first tomato has formed. Here it is, in all it's blurry glory:
My mom gave me this astilbe and I put it in last year, and its doing great:
The orange mint is almost ready for its first harvest of the season:
And, finally: my lovely neighbor Miss S., who has given me so many plants from her garden, gave me this agapanthus about 4 years ago. Last year was its first time to bloom for me. Can you see the little bud?
Well, I know this is hesira knits, but this time of year, hesira is pretty obsessed with planting and watching the progress of all her green babes. I am continuing on the Lilith sweater aned making progress. I'll post photos of that project soon.
