Circa 1981 and the April Garden

Aaah!  It's been almost a week since I've posted.  Too many colds, distractions, and over-commitments piled up.  C'est la vie.  Here I am. 

We unearthed these dresses from my childhood, sewn by my mom.

Mom!  Marguerite and I look like REAL American Girl Dolls in these dresses!

Here are my vintage 1981 dollies:

While they played in the sandbox I visited my plants.  Checking in on what's popping up.  I really should have been putting the broccoli starts in the ground.  It'll happen.

Strawberries are blooming strong:

Peonies are growing inches by the day:

Clematis keeps climbing (fingers crossed it makes it as far as the arbor to meet the climbing rose with a strong handshake):

Ferns to greet us on the porch:

Bleeding hearts haven't quite formed the bank I was hoping for, but the two on the end should fill out by next year:


Lily of the Vallee:

Lady's mantle is popping up in unexpected nooks and crannies:

And look at what's happening street side!:



Solomon's Seal:
