Spring has sprung and my 3 year old can't resist touching the tempting ruffles of the ranunculus. In the foreground is pak choi that has bolted and ladybug food (aphids). The Zephirine Drouhin rose that I planted up the arbor is starting to bloom and is so fragrant and thornless. I planted 4 apple trees in February of 2008 anticipating a cooler summer (insert laugh track) and there is one lone survivor that is blooming. My meyer lemon is also making a comeback. It is such a great little tree and I am so glad that it survived!


  1. I can't help but touch the ranunculus, either! They are so bright and 'ploofy.' Three cheers for your Meyer lemon's return!
