As usual, I found a great video over on This is Colossal.com that I hope you enjoy just as much as I did. I love the Great Pacific Northwest, but I really, really miss the thunderstorms of the Midwest. Growing up in Michigan, it was one of the best parts of summer, except for when the cable would go out as a result! Chad is on Instagram, and I just started following him, because I don't want to miss out on anything new.

Nothing major to report, I am enjoying the beautiful weather we are having for this Memorial Day Weekend, which is warmer and drier than what we normally get. The flower beds are coming along, my Honeysuckle Vine is just starting to bloom, and the Delphiniums I planted last year are coming along nicely.
Last weekend I got a single light pink blooming Peony, and am probably going to start digging a spot to plant it this weekend. I also got a pink Salvia and planted that in the back with the goal of attracting more Humming Birds, and it's working already! The Sweet Pea seeds I started in doors did well, and I planted those several weeks ago, and am continuing to try and train them up the bamboo stakes. I have some Lupines I started from seed as well, but not early enough. They are definitely too small to bloom this year, but I am hoping they grow and develop into nice healthy plants for next year.

We had a chilly but mostly sunny day today, the last day of winter. I'm happy to report that it looks like the majority of what I planted last year survived our rough winter. I'm extra excited because the tulips I planted are all coming up - this will be a first for me.
Yesterday when I was waiting to catch the bus into town around noon, three Trumpeter Swans flew right overhead. So cool. Here is a picture of the day lilies from the last week, and today's Mutts comic strip, enjoy!
