We never see ours. I have no idea where they nest, but we always have plenty of them. Very Happy

The Mediterranean Bells Alliums are showing off their stuff. I love the Alliums, and the Deer hate them - the best of both worlds!  Very Happy

Doves don’t make pretty nests.  We had a pair in an old abandoned (nice) robin’s nest a few years ago.  They raised a little brood, the nest was inside of a grapevine wreath on my porch, so we had a front row seat!  

Love your allium bells, OG!

The Redbud trees bring bright beauty to a spring day in spite of the continuous rain.

The Curly Kale and Swiss Chard have been in the ground for about a week, and are looking good. They appear to have adjusted to the transplant well. Now I need to get them mulched.  The row between the blocks of Kale is Romaine Lettuce, which should be done before the Kale gets big enough to start shading it.

I need to get some pics, too... My sugar snaps are up.  Radishes need thinning (yum).  Spinach is kinda hinky?  Not sure...Lettuces are great and I may be having a salad if I can get a break from the RAIN!!!!!

OG, Our baby Redbud!  A small variety that is supposed to behave with an occasional pruning. N&C Midwest:  April is here! 2019 - Page 2 Red_bu11

The Redebud and barrel replaced with xylosma in a wood planter. I had to climb it twice a year for heavy pruning, something a 70 year old needed to stop doing! N&C Midwest:  April is here! 2019 - Page 2 Xylozm11

Yes, it is.  Last year they got so huge that they badly crowed each other, so this year I only put two plants per square instead of one. The Curly Kale are one plant per square, and they will use all of the space! Very Happy

Can't wait to start eating fresh chard & kale!

Yes it did! Almost feel naked. This is the north side of the house so sun shade isn't so important except for a month or so.
