It's a magical place in that yard. And you always capture that.

Dani said...

Awwww..thanks Melissa. :)

Erin said...

Gosh I don't think anyone could pull me in from that garden, well maybe the humidity later on LOL but I'd want to camp out there!

Big Shamu said...

OK, any update on Shamy's gender? Will Shamy look like Cotton, who just cracks me up every time? Could your green beans get any fatter?
Do you plant watermelon?

Just planted my seeds that you sent me. Mostly the tomatoes. This weekend will start the rest.

The chickens, they crack me up!

Dani said...

Erin, Gah, our humidity is a killer! My bean plants are already starting to get mildew spots from it.

Shamy, I really feel that she's a girl. *fingers and toes crossed*

When Baby Shamy grows up she'll look like our Silky that got killed except in a different color.

I've grown watermelon a few times. Didn't have much success though. I tend to have a black thumb when it comes to the squash and melons.

Cotton is a White Crested Black Polish. She's a big ole sweetheart, but tends to get into a lot of mischief.

Darla said...

Good job picking those beans Elizabeth!

Buzz Kill said...

I just had green beans last night and they don't look anywhere near as good as yours.

Boxer said...

Wow! Super lush and beautiful. Your chickens have great expresssions. Love them.

Susan said...

Nice harvest of beans, and yes it does feel like summer is actually here!

Dani said...

Yeah, what's up with that Susan? Seems like spring only lasted a couple weeks this year.

Dani said...

Froggy, they crack me up too. Love them Girlz!

Buzz, if the green beans keep growing like this, I'm gonna have to start shipping them to you and Shamy.

Darla, she's such a big helper. :)

Boxer, I hope you can get outside there soon and get your spring flowers goin'.

What do you use to keep the buggies off of your plants? Anything?

MakingSpace said...

It all looks so yummy! ('cept the chickens)

Shamy be a girlie!!!

Elizabeth looks so in her element.

The green beans look FAB. (Mine ended up tough and weird. Ended up popping them open and cooking the inside beans and eating them like pintos. Overgrown, much?)

Granny Annie said...

There will be no planting around here again this year due to medical agenda. I am so happy that I can come to your peaceful garden for online visits.

Dani said...

SPP, I don't use that many chemicals, but when I do it's usually things like neem oil.

Hi Dani There is truly magic in that yard of yours.All you have to do is walk in and all the worry and trouble goes away for awhile. I think you call this magic "Peace" May God always bless you with what you have there.Love you honey, don't know where that came from but there you have it. Hugs-later

Summer has been the beat season for the plants and flowers to bloom and glow. That was a nice place for a garden site. I think I will have to plants veggies on the vacant lot their on our backyard.

Mmmmmm.....crunchy beans! What do you make with them all? Back when I lived in L.A., I had an heirloom bean soup that was the specialty of a restaurant on Beverly. I keep thinking about making it.
