The garden is doing pretty well so far

In my last gardening post, I had promised to put up more pictures at some point to show how things were progressing with the garden.  And so here is the progress report.  Today was a gorgeous (but hot) summer day and I was out in the yard doing some work, so I thought I would take some pictures for another blog post.

A visit to Mass Audubon’s Drumlin Farm

Happy Earth Day, Have Some Flowers

On Wednesday on my way home from work I missed my bus.  I didn’t actually see my bus so I can only assume that it was early as I was on time.  This meant that I took the other bus that drops me off about 5 or 6 blocks from home.  As it was a gorgeous day I had the opportunity to walk, pick up a (losing) lottery ticket, and take some photos of flowers along my way home.

While Spring always makes me a little sad, Spring flowers are my absolute favorite.  I think it has something to do with the fact that Spring flowers come in a riot of colors, but SO many of them are purple.  Purple is my favorite color, always has been.  So, enjoy some photos of the spring flowers that are still out.  It may have been in the upper 70’s yesterday and we may have had a wacky mild winter, but it’s Spring in New England.

Yeah… about that “winter is over” bit

A little while back I had commented about how we were experiencing winter’s “last hurrah”.

Oh, man was I wrong.
