The Garden of Weedin' ~

....I've been weeding!!!
it's not even April, and I've got weeds!!!!!
...True, it may be but a small patch, but my herb garden holds my heart ~
I love how everything has been blooming-forth these last few days, albeit a bit early for some of the more tender plants....
my little garden angel holds her skirt and I fill it with seed for my feathered-friends ~

I had to get a shot of our outhouse door, as it stands in our garden amongst the climbling roses, wisteria and sweet annie....
(not your common, privy, ours has a flusher & a sink!)

here is a smiling face for you ~
this little Green Man welcomes the New garden growth!!

my tender strawberries...I cannot wait to taste their sweet-goodness again ~

this is the little strawberry patch that yielded hundreds of berries last year!!
right outside my shop's front door....

a full wheelbarrow (one of many) that I filled today
and dumped for the donkeys & sheep ~
they just love when I weed!!! hahhaha!

close-up of my beautiful wisteria ~
oh the hummingbirds have even visited!!!!!
(I know...I think it's waaaay too early for them too)

....more wisteria growing next to our privy ~

and yet another shot of it climbing along the fence....
I love the purple colors it has & it has me wanting to dye some wool to match!

and here are some tiny little violas...
sweet little volunteers that great us each spring...
I love all kinds of violas ~ from full-blown pansies to tiny johnny-jump-ups, to deep purple violets with their peppery-cloying-scent...

I hope the weather has been nice for you where you are,
I saw on the news this morning that some of you are bracing for some winter-like weather
(what?...what is that?) but I'm sure it won't be visiting you long ~
and before i go for the evening,
did you see the 'blurb' at the top of the page about the
No Cookin' Just Hookin' club ????
c'mon out & have some fun with us!
blessings from the farm,
