My yard is beginning to bloom. I love my yard! Roses, poppies, fuschia, and excitingly --artichokes! I've got two tomato plants in the ground and some basil. Not planning a large vegetable garden this year - I need tall raised beds to keep the dogs out of the produce, and not sure I'm up to building them. But, knowing me, I'll change my mind and put them together one of these weekends.
