(It's pronounced Rock Garden) I garden, I run, I hike, I take pictures. I'm a multi-tasking whirlwind who wishes she had more time to do more things. Adventure awaits!

Yay! Spring! Finally sort of!
It's been a couple weeks since I posted, but the yard is pretty much transformed. We've had plenty of rain and last week everything was beautiful.
My yard was temporarily purple from all the violets in the yard... I love that.
The cherry/crab apple hybrid thing I have in the front garden was blooming, filling the air with sweetness, and also lots and lots of buzzing bees.
Sweet Woodruff is great for shady areas... be careful though, it will take over. I'm going to plant some of it in my side yard and hope it will take over as "lawn" there.
I love these phlox. The tiny yellow center is sweet.
I mulched my veggie beds well, to keep weeds down and keep the moisture in. This is broccoli last week. I'll post a picture later in the week, it's already growing like crazy, especially after the rainy day we had yesterday.
