Have you ever seen an elm tree seed?
They're light as air and scatter in the spring breeze like snow flakes. This little one came into my garden from my neighbor's trees way up there across the street.
With a few hundred thousand of its friends.
Just when Tuck and I finally finished cleaning up the last of the elm tree seeds, we looked up to notice the maple tree helicopters laughing at us.
Just wait, they smirked.
But cleaning up Elm tree seeds isn't all I've been doing around the yard lately. I reseeded some bare spots in the lawn.
Delighted in the Clematis.
Brought out some of my garden friends.
and divided some hostas.
In the vegetable garden I harvested some radishes
And planted some tomatoes.
I planted some Karl Forrester Grass (the ones with tall waving plumes in the fall and winter) along the back fence.
And delighted in some more Clematis.
I planted my pots
with these flowers:
I splurged on this succulent "tile" for the table on the deck.
And delighted in the first rose.
I wondered if our potato barrel is going to turn into Jack's bean stalk.
But all in all, I'm happy to report that my little urban garden is having a good spring.
