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.
|Purple cone flower|
|charentais cantaloupe flowering|
|So far, so good with the bees. |
The hive body is nearly full, so it was time for another box.
