It has been cool, windy and wet for the most part of the last week. This weekend saw the sun shining again and today was really nice to be out in the garden or anywhere. I finally got the planter of sedums out of the garage. They were stretching for the light but with nightly frosts I was hesitant about putting them out. The pulsatilla is blooming right along as are the Exotic Emperor tulips.
The moss phlox is just so pretty and loaded with blooms. The yellow daffodils in the front garden just sway with the breeze. The asparagus is coming up in the side garden. This is my husband’s favourite and he looks forward to barbequing the tender spears with just a little olive oil. Unfortunately, he is not well enough to eat them this year. I will cook some if he shows me how. I don’t know about you but I never learned how to cook on the barbeque. I left that to hubby. He is a pro at it. Our boys are also great bbq cooks. I can’t even light it. I hated asparagus growing up as my Mom cooked it to mush and I used to gag at the table. Now I love it cooked just tender crisp.
I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday again. Have a wonderful week. The mosaic templates I used this week were from Isobel LaFrance. Valerie
