Garden Talk

Hello. It's been a while and I've missed being here. Would you like to see what's happening in the garden? I was out picking strawberries this evening and couldn't help but notice what else was growing and blooming.
The foxglove are standing straight and tall :: so pretty.
They're scattered here and there throughout the garden, mixed in with other cottage-style perennials and some veggies too.
My friend told me a little saying about perennials:
the first year they sleep
the second year they creep
the third year they leap
It's year two for many of these and I'd say they're already leaping! We're trying out a little patch of square-foot gardening this year. Hubby constructed the parts and pieces and the planting is almost complete. I'll be back to show you how it's turning out.


  1. I LOVE those red Lupines. Very pretty.

  2. Love those lupines and foxgloves! Just gorgeous! Did you start those from seed? We finally picked our first strawberries last night! :)
