Red Maple

I was walking around our yard this afternoon and noticed our Red Maple tree shining a brilliant green in the afternoon sunlight. The pictures don't do it justice, but I had to share anyway. :)


Remember last weekend when I spilled all my seed pods? Well, I should have just thrown all of it out right then and there, but I just couldn't bring myself to do it. Now, the tomatoes have sprouted. Unfortunately, I have no way of knowing which varieties they are. Hmmm, what to do, what to do...

Ack! Snake!

I was walking in my yard today and almost stepped on this guy. He was sunning himself in the grass by my Green Ash. I know they are harmless, but he really startled me. We had just laid down weed killer and much of the dandelion stems look like little snakes so he blended right in.

First Signs of Life

Last week, when I re-planted my tomatoes and cabbage seeds, I also planted some lettuce seeds in my 3x3 raised bed I have on our patio. I am now just beginning to see the first signs of life. This should be a head of lettuce just starting the growing journey.
