The Survival Garden, Etc. ...

I like having a vegetable garden, as well as a flower garden. This year, I didn't have the time or energy to rototill, so I am trying container gardening. This spot gets sun all day long so it should be good. I planted lots of snow peas, lettuce, spinach, cucumber, broccoli, red peppers, and of course carrots. 

Hopefully, a small stash for Bruno.

The lupine is doing very well, too. I became fascinated with them after watching a Monty Python skit eons ago, about an 18th c. highwayman by the name of Dennis Moore, who stole from the rich and gave to the poor, but he stole lupines. OK, you had to be there .. 

Day lilies coming along well, now that we have more sun and warmth.

I am here with the "practice" version of the Burrard Bridge. Already I can see the right hand blues are too dark, but it will look different when the buildings are done.

And the tulip needs help.

I've heard rumors to the effect that Joscelyn [ the dentist with the broken arm] is planning to come back to a full work schedule next week. She only had the pins pulled out [literally] two days ago, so we all, at the office, think she's pushing it, but then she is a very determined lady. So I may be back to footloose and fancy-free, but financially tight  very soon. To be continued ...

As always, please be most welcome to leave your comments - love 'em!
