Lavender is beginning to flower. Soon it will be attracting beneficial insects to the garden.
My honeysuckle has been attacked by aphids.
Garlic scapes are the flower stem of garlic. I harvest them and use them for pesto and salads. They have a light garlicky flavor.
Beet greens with water beads after a rain.
Fennel fronds hold beads of water after a rain.
Nasturtium leaves also make a nice resting place for water beads.
This rosemary plant is getting bigger by the minute, I've already harvested from it too! I'm so happy I decided to replace the rosemary I overwintered in the house. This one is much healthier.
I use this veggie bed to rotate crops during the season. Currently it has lettuce, tomatoes, peas, corn (which gets eaten every night, I wonder if we'll get any of it), beans, squash and garlic. Seem like alot? The peas, lettuce and garlic will soon be pulled to make more room for the other plants.

Mr. & Mrs. Robin have been keeping their brood well fed. They bring worms to the nest every 5-10 minutes and the babies gobble them up. In this video you’ll see the babies enjoying a worm, then that parent flies away and immediately the other parent flies in with another worm.
The babies change so much from day to day.
I’m so impressed with the way that both the mother and the father robin work together. They really are a team.
"Tennis Ball" lettuce is a gorgeous color.
Looks like we'll have lots of peas soon!
This honeysuckle looks like a delicious buffet to the hummingbirds.
