Winter is over. Spring time is here. Although with the heat of the sun, it sure feels like summer! And yet mornings are still a bit cold.
But there's life in our garden. I welcome them with gleeful anticipation. Let me give you a short tour in our backyard garden.Just look at these lettuce in our small green house. They are thriving. And my husband carefully told me, 'no need to water them anymore, just spray some water on the roots to avoid unwanted attention from worms.' And that is what I do. The melon is also planted on this side but we have yet to see it grow.
On the other side, still inside the green house, would be the tomatoes. IC loves eating them freshly picked. And these I religiously water. I know that we have also planted some corn seeds beside these tomatoes. More tomatoes would be planted outside when summer pushes.
And look at our strawberry field. Well, this might be a small patch of land to be called a field but wait when the harvest time approaches -- there would be enough for a small band of kindergarten munchkins. I love watching the strawberries when they bear fruits because they come so fast. Sometimes the worms and the birds are faster than us! Oh but there's enough to share for the past years, I hope for this year, too. I water this every morning.
And look at how busy our backyard looks like. Toys all around. The swing and the slides ready. The sandbox open. The grill waiting. The garden furnitures all outside. Can you see my two busy bees, IC and MC? Oh, they love their place in the sun; especially when it is time to feed the kois in our pond.
Of course, I love this time, too. I simply hate the dustings of sand that I would definitely find all over the house :D
