When Jeff Lowenfels' Teaming with Nutrients arrived on my doorstep (thanks to my friendly UPS delivery man), I skipped to the door, exclaiming happily to my sister-in-law, "Oh, I know what this is!" When I opened the box and she saw the what it was, she just rolled her eyes and said, "Sheesh. You really do like this stuff."
I have gardening books all over the house. I replay gardening shows on my computer, often merely for soothing background noise. Parts of the house smell a little tangy at times when I'm bringing up seedlings and feeding them my homemade compost tea.
I am a woman obsessed.
One might ask why I can't get gardening out of my mind. Well, I think my garden has offered up quite a lot of convincing evidence this week in my defense.
|Turfman caught sight of this on Thursday|
And it became this by today.
|It almost looks like Woody Woodpecker now|
I happened to look out of the kitchen window this morning just when a flurry of flying activity began around the lime tree. Turns out I was witnessing a honey bee swarm.
|Here they are, and now they seem to be building a hive!|
And the miniature Toad Lilies are in full bloom now.
|The Matsukaze Toad Lily|
Now, really, why wouldn't I be obsessed?
