Spring = Growing

At Cozy Acres spring is coming.

A few pictures of the Farmer’s winter/spring garden

beets                                            broccoli                                   parsleyand onions

cabbage, bolted          mustard greens,turnip flowers       lettuce s

cauliflower                   cauliflower leavings

The row on the right raspberries, boysenberries and Marion berries.

                                 

The left row grapes,   ??  the varieties. Grape cuttings have leaves.

West and south sides have glass, the east side will have a sliding door and window to match west. The back side will be wood. All the glass has been donated.  The floor is river rock covered with decomposed granite. the Farmer is getting anxious to begin planting seed.

We hope you don’t have skin problems as this tree does.

These iris have been blooming since November and still there are bubs.

Love these violets!

Part of our rose garden, it is amazing to me  –  how drastically the roses are pruned. They grow full and beautiful.

Ajuga  is 6-8 inches tall, I’ve never had them grow so well as here.

This is my row of hydrangeas, all have good new growth. To the left, assorted ground covers are being planted. All the varieties I brought from Grandma Crain are growing nicely.

Our current wall hanging is one I made in 2004. I entered a quilt challenge, given the musical note fabric make a quilt on the theme, Music in the Foothills for the Foothill Quilt guild quilt show. The pattern is a variation of delectable mountains. All those little half square triangles were made with triangle paper. I won  the Viewer’s Choice award. I was more pleased to win the award than on from the judges. The viewer’s choice award is received from votes from the public viewers and quilters.

  1. The garden patches look so lovely! I know what you mean about the roses getting pruned back so much (it’s needful ) and yet they bloom so full and colorful. That’s a lovely quilt.
    Happy Garden growing!
