I have been a bit behind with my blog–but I have been busy in the garden.
Here is a herb garden Roy created from scratch last month
And here is our Alpine garden.
We have bird feeders in the garden, and are popular. Lots of feathered visitors.
The seed bursting its narrow confines, full of promise of yellow sunflowers.
Our bay tree almost died this winter, and then, just when we grew accustomed to its loss, and decided to chop it down, we saw shoots on the trunk itself. New hope, new life, persistent…. Resurrection!! Thank you, Lord!
Jake, our collie, thinks gardening is a brilliant idea, though he does wish we would resume taking him for walks, rather than absently tossing his ball for him!

I am going to try to grow vegetables for the first time ever. We have laid out an asparagus bed with 40 asparagus plants. And I have about 125 vegetable plants in pots to plant out. No kidding!!
Just curious. Does anyone actually save money by gardening? Or is it just an expensive hobby, which has some fresh, luscious veggies as a fringe benefit?
I’d imagine that the capital expenditure is a more or less one- time thing, and the yield in fruit and veggies increases month by month. Sort of like running a business.
