Before We Go

Levi finished kindergarten today.  And on Saturday the kids & I are leaving for 2 weeks away to Wildwood, and then a 3rd week away to the beach.  There's so much going on here that the challenge is bringing things to a holding point where they can be left.  I've been hauling hay, mulching, weeding, and also slowly wandering around taking it all in.

Roses & Zinnias - Lovey's birthday centerpiece.

The artichokes are starting to come it!  They were planted in January.

Artichoke plants & Indi about the same height.

This 25 cent pack of 'cactus zinnias' I found have turned out to be my favorite.
They're big (some giant, below) & all are a different color.

Waiting, waiting...

So far, so good with the bees.
The hive body is nearly full, so it was time for another box.
