I have good news!

my garlic which i wrote off as dead after last year’s puddle-submerged bed in which they were planted – i noticed earlier this morning that low and behold – the garlic’s a growin’ and its growin’ strong! WAAHOOOO!!! 🙂


i know its not uber exciting – but they’re alive! and growing! and green! yay! 🙂

also, my window sill in the kitchen has become my other locale for green goodies:

the sil!

from the left:

cat nip sprouting from seed

chives sprouting from seed

abandoned asparagus fern from a friend’s mom im trying to nurse back to health but i think im loosing the battle as its shedding all of its spikes

forget me nots sprouting from seed

(a pie bird!)

basil sprouting from seed

sweet yet weird cactus fro walmart sitting atop a candy cane container

yellow crocus from the farmers market

tomato seeds that sprouted in fall and mostly died over the winter

(wobble bottle opener!)

pepper seeds that sprouted in fall and mostly died over the winter

spider plant on counter that happily grows just about anywhere (and a little small striped house plant inside it too)

and a green hanging plant given as a gift to me from someone who bought an animal at the livestock auction at the redwood empire fair a few years ago chills above the window!


I entered three photos into a contest at Fine in their summer bouquets contest. I have a small clustering of Naked Ladies (at least that’s what we’ve always called them in our family) in my yard and I brought a few in to set on my window sill above my kitchen sink. They looked so elegant in the glass pitcher that I got a few years ago from a past landlord that was filled with a homemade liquor — I hope I do well!

Vote for me?? 🙂

Here’s a sneaky peek:
