    Of course it´s work, work, work in the veggie plots; however, there are other things going on at the same time...in the other half of our garden ( the Flower Garden). Oké, the flowers blooming now are not exotic and or particularly impressive, but for the lottie at this time of year, They are a welcome sight. Most of the work has been done in the veggie plots, the paths are rough-looking and I am cleaning the plots little -by-little. I had hoped that the Myosotis blooms would look better on the foto, but alas. The honey bees and bumble bees are loving them.

    Speaking of honey bees--they are flying and bringing in loads of pollen//a good sign that there is brood.

    A blow-in Corydalis is too cute to throw-away.

    The Wisteria is loaded with buds and one just couldn´t wait for the rest.

    In one plot the Exochorda and the Brem are really going to town

    We have our fruit trees in the flower section. The plums have bloomed and now the apple trees are exhibiting lovely buds with flowers carefully beginning to open.

    We have seen the first bumble bee three weeks ago, the first butterfly (Aurelia) two weeks ago Lady bugs a little more than three weeks ago and today the first cabbage butterfly. Gurrrrrr. That was the insect world//but four days ago we saw the first frog in the canal and then there is this--

    It is a coot. Our garden neighbour is an artist and she made a nice sketch of this same female coot. The nest is at the point of land between our two gardens. She sent an e-mail with this drawing.

    It's a wisteria, or something similar, seed pod.

    Looks like a Wisteria seed pod?
    I love those Myosotis blooms, a make sure to let lots of seeds fall in my garden. I love their blue blooms - I have fond childhood memories of them - but they sure can get scraggly at the end of their bloom time.
