Spring Is In Full Bloom

It’s the first warm week CT has had all year! Our back yard is looking prettier all of a sudden, thanks to our puffy white blooms.

Yes, they are a little unruly, but so are my eyebrows and nobody seems to care 😀

My vegetable garden (my first time ever growing anything…on purpose) is sprouting!!  I am so excited! 

Green beans…

Zucchini & squash are looking the same, but I know that something’s brewing below the surface…

The romaine lettuce is popping

Even the onions!

Not to mention that my yard turned into Animal Kingdom! 

I realized what a wuss I am.  I saw a black snake and screamed so loud, I think the neighbor’s cat went deaf!  He slithered (bleh!) away, and I stumbled upon this guy that didn’t move quite as quickly. 

He heard me scream and tucked his head in, hahah!

This little cutie didn’t move.  He must be smart.  He must have known that the high-pitched noise coming from me wasn’t my battle cry. 

My mom bought me a hummingbird ornament for the garden. 

The crazy Spring Fever was in the air without a doubt.  Either that or the solar-powered glow of the hummingbird must have given off some kind of mood lighting.  Either way, these bugs were into it.

Okay, I know it’s borderline inappropriate,  but I couldn’t believe my eyes, hahahh!  

Bug Porn.  This blog has sunk to a new low. 

I’ve also  learned that weeding sucks.   Royally.  It’s the worst task ever.  I may start an advertisement on craigslist…

Need to hire a garden weeder. Must like frogs. Will pay in cookies for compensation. 

Sounds good to me!


Are you sprouting anything this year?  What are some beginner gardening secrets?  Help a girl out!
