Pops of color.

Enjoying the final days (or weeks) of pregnancy before the baby comes, and now also enjoying some new colors in the front yard.


The scarlet flax didn’t return in the heat bed (sprouts lost in the frost) but survived up by the house.


I have been waiting and waiting for these cosmos to open…and more that they have? Yeah, those aren’t cosmos…did I sow larkspur? Maybe?


I did plant some ranunculus bulbs! I’ve tried to get these suckers to grow for more than three years now, and finally -finally! I found a spot that suits them.


My only gardening plans for the next month or three consist of getting the tomatoes out of their overgrown starter pots and into pots they could spend the whole season in if necessary, since we’re moving sometime in the next few months. It may just be a tomatoes-at-the-farmers-market year, we’ll see.

  1. I love your flowers, especially the ranuculus! I’ll bet you are getting soo excited for your new family member! As a doula, I’m wishing you all the very best come birthing day! 🙂

    We have few flowers in the yard. I must absolutely remedy that by scattering some seeds. Thanks for the kick in the pants!! Beautiful larkspur (?). The path that leads out to the creek will be flanked with a serendipity of insect-and-bird attracting flowers and plants. Used to be LOADED with rose bushes; in 8 years, I’ve killed them (almost) all. Lots of space for seeds…too many oak tree roots for nursery plants. Wish me luck.

      Good luck! I like to just get mixed seeds or toss random seed packets all together and see what comes up. Then even if just one does (like the larkspur) it’s still fun in that spot 🙂

    pretty flowers:-) Congrats on the baby due soon:-) Oh your life will be SO MUCH fun with your little one + gardens. Enjoy it passes too quickly:-) My youngest moved out this summer:-(, but I have a two little grandsons that are 2 + 10 months, so I get to enjoy it all over again!

  4. Many congratulations on your pending arrival! Another future gardener, no doubt…we need more of those. She or he definitely has a good head start in that department.
