Garden Tour

Spring is coming, and that means flowers! Yes, even our poorly maintained garden has a few flowers.
It also has lots of these suckers - and this is by far the largest one I've ever seen in our yard.

The wall that needs some pruning.

The little flowers all over our retaining wall/hill that draw bees like crazy.

Tulips from Holland. We brought these back after our trip to Amsterdam in 2006, and they have been coming up ever since.

Our little sumac is budding! Another 20 years and it should be as big as the one that fell down last winter.

The raspberry bush has spread out a bit, in a few years maybe we'll have enough to do something with.

The chives we abandoned to the snails are back in full force. I guess the slug pellets did some good last year!

And you'll all be happy to know that our stinging nettle vine is also thriving.

You can eat those, you know.

I will mail it to you if you like.

Oh, and as for the stinging nettle, I was told in Romania that you can make a shampoo out of it that'll prevent hair loss.

Not that I've tried it.

As should be obvious to anyone who's met me recently.

Nice work. I came across your blog while “blog surfing” using the Next Blog button on the blue Nav Bar located at the top of my site. I frequently just travel around looking for other blogs which exist on the Internet, and the various, creative ways in which people express themselves. Thanks for sharing.
