Springtime & Passover

It’s that time of year when our thoughts turn to Matzo and mulching. I had two swell Seders with David & our pal Nell and two big gardening days.

We did manage to plant a bunch of veggies, we put in lettuce, broccoli, eggplant, zucchini, red pepper, yellow pepper, basil, sage, lavender. Today I got the Canna in and divided and planted all the Dahlia bulbs in starter pots.

(The Peonies a comin up!)(Our AMAZING climbing roses . . . stay tuned for when these babies bloom)

(The Lilies, you’ll have to wait until late July until these bloom)

(My favorite tree ever – the Japanese Maple)

    I love Park Slope! I met Alexandra a few years ago at the Park Slope Knitting group. Isn’t she the BEST spinning teacher ever?
