I spent an hour or so this morning in the yard. First I trimmed some branches from the Japanese Maple tree in front of the house. They were blocking my view, when I sit in my new knitting spot, of the Crape Myrtle that is in full bloom.
Then I weeded my little garden. I put this frame around the daffodils in the spring to protect them from my neighbor's lawn mower. About three weeks ago, I planted some sunflower seeds, and two weeks ago I set out some parsley, basil, marigolds, one tomato and one pepper. The tall plants on the right are the sunflowers.
I also harvested three cherry tomatoes from the plant that volunteered beside my compost bin. They were very good!
