I had a small community garden plot last summer near where we lived. We have since moved from that town, and I’m part of a larger community garden here.
Over the last several weeks I’ve been starting seeds out on the deck, preparing them for the planting season. I have a bunch of sunflower seeds I harvested from last years crop, and I’ve started some of them too. A lot of them, actually. And I still have loads left!
I’ve planted some in my garden, some in the community part of the garden, and given some away.
This is what looks at me from the deck each morning:
“Plant us! Please plant us!”
Who am I to say no to faces like that?
(And yes, my plants talk to me…..don’t yours?)
Happy May Day!
Here in Western Washington it looks like it’s going to be bright and beautiful…forecast says 80+ degrees!

Stopped by Lake Wilderness before going to work this afternoon.
Beautiful day, lots of people were already out, enjoying the day. Many of them were fishing, including one couple who were already out on the lake in their boat.
They looked so peaceful out there on the calm waters that they became my subject for today’s photo.
I’m pretty sure the man knew I was there, and probably thought I was a weird creeper in the bushes.
I like how the color reflected in the water
Excuse me, you’re blocking the sun…..
Such great colors today! The first of several high 70′s days – in a row!
Can you see the mountain?
It seems to have the power to move, showing up in surprising places as one drives from town to town.
Went for a quick walk down to the dock this morning before heading home.
Just your typical spring day in the park…
This dandelion looked lovely with the setting sun behind it.
I got my garden planted today!
Can’t say that it looks like much now, but give it a few weeks!
I have several types of tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, onions, carrots, spinach, and zucchini. Oh, and in a communal growing area I planted the Cinderella pumpkin.
What is the weather like in your neck of the woods? Have you gotten your garden in the ground yet?
