Spring changes……

What do you think of my new header? 
I just needed a bit of a change for spring, ’cause that’s how I roll 🙂
 I am ready to get out and plant my veggies and annuals.  Today is supposed to be in the 70’s and I am going to take  a break from the studio and get out in the dirt. I have a couple of new  little trees to put in too. We are putting in a River Birch right off of our back deck. I’ve always dreamed of having  a semi-wooded lot. A lot of the trees in our neighborhood, like the Silver Maples, have reached their age limit and people are taking them down. I miss those trees, it makes the skyline look so bare, so I am putting some  back in!

 My Brussels sprouts made it through winter and are blooming all over the place. Isn’t that funny? I didn’t know they did that.
 The peas I put in in March are finally poking up.
We’ve been eating asparagus for the last few weeks and the strawberries are ready to go to. I hope to have enough this year that I don’t have to buy any extras to make freezer jam.
Are you in the spring mood?

  1. I don’t know how you did it but I love the softness of your photos on your header. It looks fabulous!


  2. Your new header looks wonderful, Jen! I love the potting table! You sound like an avid gardener…I didn’t know that about Brussels sprouts either! DO you have a problems with the bunnies? They always demolish my peas. And beans…and lettuce!

    Hope you are having a great day, it’s supposed to be gorgeous!


  3. Your new header looks lovely! Yes, I am in the mood to garden, too, and will be doing the same today:). Your Birch trees will look so neat!



  4. Lovely header Jen — fresh and spring like in every way. Spring is a slow starter here in Toronto — we’ve had some nice days but it’s chilly for May and we haven’t had a lot of sun. Won’t be planting any annuals until the long weekend (our Victoria Day weekend May 20th). It’s generally safe enough then, though the perennials started to come up early because of the early warm spell…I go out and check on things every day!

  5. I have been getting out in my yard a lot too lately. Its funny that you mention if you are going to have enough strawberries. I have spent the past few days digging mine up and getting ready to sell since they have totally taken over!!

    You might want to be careful about your brussels sprouts. Usually when they start to flower that means they are “bolting” and ready to go to seed…their producing time is over.

  6. Love the new header, Jen! I don’t have a garden anymore since we moved to a condo, but I did buy some flowers last week and am enjoying them. There are also a few bare spots around the condo that are just calling out for some hydrangeas so they are on my list to get this week.
