in spite of another rainy grey drizzle, it feels like things are happening in the backyard.
the baby spinach is ready for harvesting.
the scallions are running amok.
brussel sprouts are doing what they are supposed to (i guess – i’ve never grown these puppies before).
my fabulous father-in-law built doors for our little wood shed (which has now been upgraded to “the tool shed”, by virtue of its lockability).
i painted the other side of the trellis (less than a year after the first side was painted!) – you can see my 1-year-old rhubarb flourishing on the other side.
and finally, beautiful tulip. it has survived many attempts on its short little life to give us this bloom.
