Seeing Blue

 I see the blue flowers in the wild gardens...Veronica and a perennial Salvia are in bloom.

The seeds have just been allowed to grow and bloom where ever they land.

Well I'll be

 My Japanese Tree Lilac has blooms!  This is exciting because this is only the second time in 26 years!

See one bloom toward the center of the photo. 

There are more very high in the tree.

Yellow Pear Tomato

 Our Yellow Pear Tomato has been planted in the sheep watering tank that sits inside our old dog kennel.

Far Guy has various forms of anchoring in place....cages, wires and fence posts.   This year the sheep tank sits on cement blocks.  Perhaps I can forego the ladder this year when picking the tomatoes. 

It is a nice spot up against Tilly's garage, a little protected from the winds and the kennel should keep out deer...maybe.

 Our Oaks are mostly done leafing out.  They take a long time. 

Far Guy has been doing some wood carving.  The Christmas Ornament for this year has been chosen. 

I have been clearing out files and some papers all unnecessary ...they are shredded and then recycled.  I made some pretty good progress in several stash/messy areas.  Yeah me.

Look OUT!

 For the Poison Ivy! 

We had enough rain to nurture the poison ivy to great some areas it looks like a shrub...a nasty shrub. 

I sprayed this area as it is near the house...soon it will be dead.   It felt good to spray it.

Yes I know I am weird.
