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.

My mother (Bless her heart, and you KNOW what THAT means, LOL) also has the uncanny ability to find 4leaf clovers!
Send me one, I need some GOOD luck for a change, grin!
