Last Saturday, we said goodbye to Betty.

She had had a great life here, filled with green fields and plenty of back scritches. How she loved getting her back scratched!

Goodbye Betty boop. We’ll miss you.

Container Gardening

Pictures of the garden will be posted soon. As soon as it stops raining! I don’t think it ever will.
Meanwhile I have some containers on the deck going.

Most of them are herbs: 3 kinds of basil, 3 kinds of sage, parsley, tarragon, rosemary, lavender, thyme. Plus some cherry tomatoes, and some flowers, ornamental and edible (nasturtiums). I also set aside some containers for lettuce and mesclun.

Here is a container for lettuce. But some of these seedlings are not like the others. Can you spot them?

Here’s another sample, maybe they are more obvious mixed in with the larger lettuces. See them? Those are sunflower seedlings, no doubt planted via the black oil sunflower seeds that fill my birdfeeders (and Murphy’s favorite treat).

How do you think they got there?

Apparently I have a gardening squirrel.

Murphy is not amused.

I am collecting several eggs a day! It’s a sure sign of spring.

Some girls have to work a little harder though. Look at that egg on the right!
