Outdoor Wednesday ~ Happy Earth Day!
Susan at A Southern Daydreamer holds an event every week called Outdoor Wednesday. Be sure and go to her site to check out all of the other great posts. I figured Earth Day was a great first time to join in! Almost all of the trees are sprouting out now and we are well into spring here. I love that I can take a spin around the yard in the evenings after work now that the days are getting longer. I usually take my camera with me and snap a few shots.
Yesterday evening was perfect temperature wise and the skies were so gorgeous
I hope to have clematis and roses on this arbor later this year
I love the sunset colors of this osteospurnum I bought this past weekend
Those same colors are echoed in this favorite tulip of mine, Princess Irene
The bleeding hearts are starting their show. Who couldn't love a plant that grows hearts!!!!
Another tulip with colors to match the hearts!
I thought I'd share my Wall O' Waters that are hiding 3 tomato plants. I am about a month ahead of my "planting out date" but I remembered I had these in the shed that I've never tried. I think we will have a touch of frost tomorrow night so I am hoping they work!!!! If they do we will have Early Girl, Mr. Stripey and Lemon boy in a few months :-)
Which brings me to the Kitchen part of this Kitchen Bouquet post. My favorite sandwich of all times is a fresh Tomato and cheese (american slice) with mayonnaise on white bread. The taste of summer for me! Back home in Louisiana I might expect to enjoy one in June..here...I'll be lucky to get one before August is over!!!!
