Music of Summer, Wildlife and the Vegetable Garden

It seems like just yesterday I posted the first few words on the process of starting the vegetable garden. Now, halfway through June, the first few vegetables are already ready!

One thing the vegetable garden taught me: patience. Being terribly impatient ever since I can remember, I went from excitement, to disappointment, to happiness, in just a few weeks. It looks like vegetables take ‘a little bit’ longer to grow, than I imagined they would. 🙂 Also, telling them apart from the weeds proved to be an almost impossible mission.

With the first radish making it on the plate, I must say, I was never more excited, than when I ate something I planted with my own hands! Very rewarding feeling!

Getting the garden ready for the warm season can be an interesting experience, especially when you have a lot of animals in the area. The more time we spend in nature, the more we see.

From all types of amazing birds, to frogs, to deer, to Jack rabbits, call the surroundings their home. Mother Nature surely provided the ultimate entertainment.

On top of all,  the flowers are all blossomed now, and filled the garden with amazing colors, while the cherries and prunes are growing nicely.

Some of you might remember the post about planting white and purple tulips, from last autumn. Well, here they are. Absolutely gorgeous and I can’t be happier, considering that it was my first try at planting bulbs, and I succeeded!

Welcome back summer, we missed your warm colorful music!

Well, wasn’t that a very short spring?

Spring is not here, not even close. Don’t ever trust a snowdrop in January! 🙂

Today we had a fairytale-like snowfall, and I don’t think I ever saw Mother Nature transform this beautiful before. Either this, or I really missed the snow!

Lisa most definitely had a great time checking out Mother Nature’s winter clothing.

And when it’s this cold outside, I never forget about my outside buddies, so the birdhouse provided shelter and food, during the storm, for this gorgeous bird. image_3

On our way back, we must stop to smell the roses (as it’s too cold for roses, we have to work with snowdrops and we don’t mind, at all 🙂 ).

Happy winter-spring everyone!
