Spring Into Summer

With tomorrow's temperatures expected to be in the 90s, spring is but a memory now.  It's ready blossoms are now spent and fill the compost bin to be turned into next year's blooms.  Standing on the cusp of May, it seems a good time to look back at spring.


We said good-bye to the fava beans in style - sautéed with a little bit of olive oil, leeks, garlic and kale!


After a two year absence, chamomile reappeared throughout the garden.  It is a welcome visitor.  And, can I just say that seeds are awesome!! Lying dormant for two years and for some reason, this is the year to return?

Phacelia and Chinese Houses.

Goldfields (these flowers are the size of a dime!)

I continued to rejoice in the cover crop we sowed of California wildflowers.  I'm not the only one feeling happy!


Happy end of Spring!

Ha ha, yes, Connie, please do!! It is getting downright HOT here and we had what will probably be the last rain of the season last week.
