Garden Goings on.......

 We havent had much of a winter here in So Cal....its mostly been springlike, we are in the midst of a bad drought...although we are expecting  big rain this week. I dont have a lot of planting area, my backyard is mostly pool, but I have a HUGE planter on the side of my house that I like to play in. It does not get much sun so Im not sure if my vegies will do well...but everything else is growing like mad. Here are the first 2 tulips to open...Stella and hubby planted a 100 bubls of tulips and ranuculeous, and they are just starting to bloom.


 These are radishes, I can always count on them. I also planted cucambers, spinach, kale , and collard greens......no sign of the cuckes yet but everything else is popping up. I put in 3 raised beds....I guess if theres not enough sun for vegies I can always plant flowers:)
 I have lots of herbs and lavenders and rosemarys there too, and some different kinds of fragrant sages and mints, and  a lemon verbena, which is my favorite thing to go out an smell!
 my basil seeds are popping up in the tomato pot....dreaming of caprese salads......
 all done with 2 of my projects except for the quilting and binding,,,,my favorite part...NOT!!!!
 playing with bunnies this week........

this is but one of the darling goodies Ms. Red sent me for Valentines day.........isnt it adorable!!!!

Still drinking my green juice, walking too, except for a nasty cold this week keeping me down......but not for long, Ill be out on that trail soon!

Hope you are all staying warm out there, we are all praying for RAIN here in Cali!!!!

I WISH I could talk about Spring like weather and new sprouts shooting out of the ground. We are in the teens-20s for temps this week and still snow covered. Mostly. There is some brown grass where snow melted over the weekend but more snow on the way by the weekend. I hope you guys get some rain and soon!
