    Photo-upload-415069?1410799058 So many things are blooming right now! I will just show you a few of them. One of my favorite flowers is Pearl Milkweed Vine. There's a lot of it down in the creek, but this one is growing on the fence by Coop Two. It's pretty difficult to catch in flower since the flowers are green and not ea...

    Ho ho ho..

    Photo-upload-415071?1410803219 .. I've just had to un-archive the mistletoe planting (I thought it had washed away in all the rain we had this winter) But no, it is still hanging on.

    Fall Sowing for 2014

    Photo-upload-414922?1410659693 Spent a rainy saturday cleaning up the garden and sowing Fall crops. I'm pretty excited about hopefully seeing broccoli and cauliflower.

    The orchard underneath

    Photo-upload-414989?1410708763 One of the upsides of Wei moving out is that rehab projects are actually getting done. (It didn't happen while he was here for complex couples dynamics reasons too complex for this forum). This month I tackled our hideous front entry, which had been papered with this nasty orange textured 60s ...

    Duckfoot coleous

    Photo-upload-415036?1410774988 This coleous was transplanted and it did not suffer any transplanting shock. Now it is growing in various places and doing very well. It is a great ground cover for shaded areas.

    Making Tea from Roselle
