Garden Blooms

I love discovering the first blooms in the garden.

The first visible signs that you are on your way to fresh veggie deliciousness.  No matter that the actually veggies won’t show up for weeks, it is just nice to know they are on their way.

Here are the first few from our garden:


Bell Pepper




The herbs are flowering as well.  This is less exciting than when veggies bloom, because you don’t need the blooms from herbs to get the good stuff.  The leaves are the good stuff.  But herb flowers are often very pretty, as is the case with the bloomers I have now.  And… they are all purple.  Herbs after my own heart.



Lavender – the prettiest by far

I really hope the lavender fields are in bloom when we go to Seattle in June.  I bet they are spectacular.

I hope wonderful things are blooming for you as well!

Happy Thought Thursday

…. because we all need a little more happy in our lives.

I love the lady who works in the parking garage at work because she waves at me like we are best friends every time I come in and out.  Nice people make me happy.

Tonight:  Getting to spend some time with friends who we have not been able to spend much time with lately.  Playing with a two-year old, then sending him to bed.  Good food and good wine.

This weekend:  Memorial Day weekend is upon us.  Three days off, nothing pressing, lots of family time, maybe even some swimming, fresh picked strawberries from the garden, much-needed cuddles with the hubs, and at least one bottle of wine.  Life is gooooood!

Lots of happy in my life  right now.  I hope there is lots of happy in your life, as well.
