Hi! I'm Janet, I'm happily married,a mother of 3 daughters, and grandmother of 2 grandsons. I love crazy quilts, old and new. I've lived here in River City/Happy Valley all my life. I think it's the one of the prettiest places on earth.
I'm the first to admit I don't have one. But the things in my yard that I mostly leave alone and just provide water do okay, like these red hot pokers. They are more plentiful and more intensely colored this year than ever. They always bloom around my birthday; a little early this year, but that's okay.
I'm not sure if the camera captured it or not, but the first of the moon flowers have had a distinctly lavender tinge to their outer edges.
These pansies seeded themselves from a hanging pot I had last fall. They bloomed into early December and started up again in February.
More pansies. This year I bought orange and purple violas and an orange variety called "whiskers".
I have great hopes for these two tomato plants. One is a husky red and the other is husky cherry tomato. I've had good luck with the yellow pear tomatoes in the past, but my family doesn't think they're as flavorful as the red ones.
