    1. Thank you, Michele. It's just really casual, because it's the desert. You too. xoxo

  2. Su, your first picture took my breath away, it is just gorgeous! It is still 45 degrees here and today it rained. Someone actually had a fire burning in the neighborhood and my heat kicked on! I would much rather peek at your pictures than outside my window!

    1. Thank you, Kim. I'm flattered. Wow! It's still cold there. Here, it has been one of the warmest Aprils in a long time. So I hope my garden makes it through June, but it seems we are a month ahead in our temperatures. It might hit 100 this weekend, because the weather report said upper 90s. I wish we could exchange a few degrees here and there. ;) There are two garden seasons here: one from February to June and one from late September to December.

  3. Love your photos from your garden. Here we had a beautiful spring and it had started growing, but today it has been SNOWING. Can you believe that.

    Hugs from here

    1. Thank you, Bente. SNOWING! We might reach 100 degrees this weekend, because the weather report said upper 90s and the weather is usually a couple degrees warmer than the predictions. xoxo

  4. not as nice as yours, that is for sure. It is 40 degree and raining all day. Normally I would be planting my veggies and buying my annuals but this year nada. : ( Honestly I love all your raised beds.

    1. Thank you, Victoria. I'm really loving all the beautiful projects you have shared. It seems some parts of the country are much colder than usual and some parts warmer than usual. We fall into the later. It's possible that it might get to be 100 this weekend, because the weather forecast said, "upper 90s".

  6. Hi Su, wow are you lucky to have beautiful flowers and vegetables already. It's been heavy rain for 2 days here and in the 40's. I had the heat on in the car and house today! Take care and enjoy the rest of the week.

  7. Nothing tastes better than home grown tomatoes. We have a pepper plant with peppers on it but haven't started anything else. Enjoy your week. Hugs, Diane

  13. You have a lovely garden full of good things. I like your frame supports. It's reminded me to purchase one for some climbing plants that I'm growing from seed. The raised beds are a good, practical idea and look great and I love the statue and the beautiful pot .

    1. Thank you, Linda. Home Depot and Lowes had them. I wanted to build some from sticks, but I don't have any of that debris yet.

  14. My garden only started growing a few weeks ago and the only flower buds so far are the lilacs that I think will be blossoming in a few days. June is the big blossoming month in Sweden :)

  19. How I wish I could join you in your beautiful garden, Su! There is still snow on the ground here, but teeny tiny strawberry leaves are starting to come up, along with the columbine & delphinium. Yay!!! :)
    Have a lovely one,

  20. So much lush color and lovely photos. Your garden is artful and so well tended. We are way behind you in the vegetable garden and in addition we are still doing winter cleanup. Oak leaves are my nemesis. Thanks for the visual delights!

  21. Your garden looks beautiful! Still too cold here. There's nothing like homegrown for the best taste, ever. Your kitty looks like she loves prowling around the place!

  23. I got up in the middle of reading this post and went out to cut some roses from the garden. It is 93 degrees and I realized after looking at your beautiful flowers that mine might be wilting.

  24. Oh my goodness! I would say your garden grows very well! (unlike ours which just got rid of its snow). I am coveting those raised beds. Beautiful garden!

    1. My spouse built them using Sunset magazine's plan. It's the only way we can grow a food garden easily, because the soil is caliche, sort of like clay, here.

  25. Beautiful gardens. I am researching raised beds as I write this. My books just came in from the library. :-)

    1. Thank you, Carla. I used Sunset magazine's plan, and it did not cost as much as estimated. I'm not sure why. My spouse might of had some of the material.
