growing in our garden

May brings huge peony blossoms.
Radishes make our first harvest this year.
And our backyard is literally a carpet of violets. In the early spring, it is a breathtaking sight.
We harvested our first blueberries today. Esme ate them all.
And meet one of our little albino thieves.

Another growing season is well on its way. Mother Nature has given us a beautiful spring, alternating both wet and sunny. We already have had our first harvests of blueberries and heirloom radishes. And just like last year and every year before, we started quite a few vegetables and herbs from seed, including a variety of heirloom tomatoes and peppers, sunflowers, pole beans and lima beans, dill, cabbage, pumpkins, squash, and gourds. We also have innumerable perennials and biennials--mint, catnip, chives, parsley, strawberries, onions, chamomile and rhubarb.  I cannot help but get a bit nostalgic about how our garden grows and changes year after year.
