April is closing out and then- here comes May.
The thing about carving tiles is the need to get up and walk away.
So a little walk through the yard to see what is blooming.
This clematis never fails to amaze me.
I planted it in the summer of 2000 after I was told it would bloom through fall.
This should tell you how much I know about plants!
It blooms in the spring- not through the fall...
But each year there is is.
It climbs up the building and reaches out for the sun.
I have another one that has looped its way through a sun I have hanging on the front of the shop.
I have lettuce ready to pick and we are enjoying the fresh herbs out of the garden.
Tomato plants are in and there are volunteer squash in the compost.
I have not decided what else to plant this year.
Between the tile project and the grand baby coming in May I don't want to be burdened down with too much graden.
But- it does help cleanse the brain to go out and plant or pick something.
We have a potter friend down the raod who has the most beautiful gardens running through his yards.
The other night we dropped in to play a serious game of dominoes and walk through the garden.
I need to go take pictures.
He has Iris of all colors, purple, yellow, burgundy, mixed, large and small. His yard is as beautiful as any I have ever seen.
We picked flowers from there last year when our son got married and walked away with 5 buckets loads to dress the tables for the rehersel dinner.
So back to the tiles- a walk is in order and then if you need me I will be carving away.
And- for all you folks who drop in a comment-THANKS!
