I floored it out of the city last night like my hair was on fire. I like to get home before it’s dark so I can walk the yard and see what’s new. I was in the city all week so knew that there were some good surprises waiting for me!

I love the columbine…mom’s favorite flower and they remind me of her and the Ranch. AND THE ROSES! They’re just getting started and are in abundance! I don’t know what the deal is with the lilacs. They are not blooming like they should and wonder if the strange weather confused them. There are a few sprigs here and there which is better than nothing. I am so lucky to get to spend time here and enjoy it all.

I hope to start planting the veggies today…tomatoes, green beans, various peppers, and beets. Stay tuned because I know you’re going to want to see my gardening shoes!
