It’s such a busy time around here with gardening and all. This year I met one of my goals – to have the asparagus bed and the shade garden done before June 1. This was a first and pretty exciting.
Here is the asparagus bed all ready for the summer. The stalks will produce beautiful ferns before long.
The lavender bed is doing great this year. I’ll be harvesting the buds in the next week or so. The large lavender on the left with white buds is Melissa which we use in baking and in iced tea. I wrote a post about making Lavender shortbread cookies here.
I also ice dyed a couple mandalas. They are only 12 inch squares which are really hard to fold. Next time I’ll try larger pieces of fabric.
Then I’ve been playing with paint a bit.
