In the Bluebells

While on spring break, we visited my brother's house.  As kids, this valley was my grandparents' home, and it's always nice to let my kids wander in the woods and down the lane like we did many years ago.  As is mandatory when the bluebells are blooming, we tried to get a picture of all of the kids:

This is probably the best one of the 6 I took!  But oh, well, we had a great time.
Now the kids are back in school, and I'm busy here in my gardens.  I planted potatoes for the first time ever today.  I bought Purple Viking seed potatoes, and I'm eager to watch them grow in the new garden area that Nathaniel helped me build.  I'll have to take a picture soon.  I'm also still piddling around with seedlings indoors, and I've got peas and onions going in one garden, and broccoli, cabbage, and cauliflower in another.  So far, I'm off to a pretty good start, although I don't know if the cauliflower will make it.  I'll have to try it again as a fall crop.


  1. Your picture is better than any of mine. You can't really see the bluebells in mine. Would like to have a copy of both please.
