I got home from Ireland and found...
Things don't stop growing when you're on vacation.
After just two weeks away, were amazed to find...
ridiculously long grass:
raspberries that have set fruit already:
the grapes are growing well:
the chives are sprawling:
the garlic is looking good (There are 3 different varieties growing in this photo. From left to right they are: Music, Chinese Pink and Oregon Blue. I am again in awe at the way the Music variety grows and produces):
peas that are plugging along (despite flooding rains, high winds and unseasonably cold spring weather):
the potatoes I planted the day before we left are sprouting:
my columbine is in full bloom:
the irises are, too:
the hostas in front look like they've been fed steroids:
Everything is, quite simply, thriving:
And the weeds...yes, the weeds are doing very well, too:
I also found donkeys and llamas curious at my return:
Goats who needed some good hugs:
Chickens thrilled to be out free-ranging again:
All is well here:
I am happy to be home.
