Fun time of year

My walking view today. One of the elderberry bushes we planted several weeks ago bloomed today. I had no idea we'd have berries our first year, but Jilda says the blossom is a good sign that we'll have some. We'll see.

As we walked on toward the fig bush to check on its progress, I almost stepped on this little fella.

I'm happy that all these critters are hanging around here. We don't use any kind of poison on our property, so I'm guessing that has something to do with it, but who knows.

Our garden is coming along nicely. We need to get the mulch out this weekend to keep the weeds down.

It's a fun time of year.


  1. Snails do not thrill me at all. But the rest of your garden is lovely.

  2. A vibrant and exciting time of year.
    Hooray for no poison. I too try, but the neighbours (on all sides) do use a range of them.

  3. Sounds like a good times

  4. Good stuff, and I do love the snails of our world, they are simply amazing.
    Great shot BTW!

  5. The picture with the snail in the middle , on the green vegetation background - is awsome!

  6. Keeping those weeds down is not an easy job. They seem to be everywhere and mulching is hard dirty work. Good luck !

  7. Elderberry jelly sounds good. The picture of the snail is a good close-up.
