May Days!

The fish have come out of their fish cave! YEA!!!

Here are all five of them. Three koi and two comet goldfish.

Aren't these guys wonderful?

Notice the food pellet!

Our back yard is really shaping up this spring. It's so peaceful and a really great place to sit and think and gather yourself together. (Which is what I need to do all the time!) It's also great inspiration for knitting projects. I haven't had the time to knit in SO long that I feel like I'm going to burst! I have so many ideas just bubbling up!!! I can't wait until I finally can sit down with my needles and my notebooks! (And this will definitely be the perfect spot to do so!!!)

I bought about 12 stock plants and put them all around the patio. Their spicy smell is just wonderful. It's a little like dianthus.

Here's Saint Francis waiting for some birds!

The color of this foxglove is just incredible.

Although those pesky canker worms ate all the leaves off the cherry trees, the blueberry bushes are still hanging in there. Only about a cupful of green berries are growing this year.

I planted some phlox and some English daisies, too. This little spot is going to be a tiny fairy garden!
