Idyll #479 'All things seem possible in May'
We are supposed to have cold temps for the next little while. ThatÂs not so bad as long as the wind doesnÂt blow. Unfortunately it is blowing today. Here in the country we get a lot of corn stalks and leaves that blow in. I wonÂt be taking any plants outdoors until things warm up some and we have less wind.
Thanks for the comments about my raised bed. I took a picture this morning as it just gets prettier. The dwarf irises are starting to bloom. Candy, the reason the bed is raised is there is this big cement enclosure for a well and the pit for the rural water. The dirt of the garden insulates it from freezing.
When we had cows they did escape several times and mostly trampled my garden not so much eating. IÂm sure they do less damage than deer.
IÂve order seeds for Rumex sanguineus aka bloody dock. HowÂs that for a yucky sounding name?
Happy birthday to little Miss Ivy!
Candy, I may not have the 12 million helicopters, but I do have 12 million ash seeds that have germinated.
Deanne, I think the coleus police should arrest me for the mistreatment IÂve given them. Yours look so happy and healthy. I do have a cordyline though that does look pretty nice. Yours is a beauty. There are a few other things that look exceptional as well.
