Springing, Swinging

Withering tulip

Old, new

Spy Garden 4.10.17: in an effort to not be a perfectionist I have not cropped out the neighbor’s trashcans or the powerlines (which I normally do: is that crazy?! hahaah)

And is it really perfectionism or just creating a harmonious composition?!

Harvesting…

Lots of edible wild things; dandelions and their greens, henbit, violets, dock (made into a delicious salad)

Keeping the asparagus patch well-picked

Love how these tulips look even when withering away

Loads of garlic; in this shot you can see an older (probably 3 year old) garlic plant in the foreground and then one and two year old plants in the background

Young spring garlic (used the same as regular garlic, just not in clove form yet!)

Tomatoes!

It is very early for tomatoes to go in the ground so I left some inside under the grow lights but since it has been so warm and I had so many seedlings I went ahead and risked it; so we’ll see! Our average last frost date is April 21st but it has been a very mild winter.

New sights on the same old trails

“Are those even real?”

Cardinal (female)

Chattering male Cardinal saying “GO CARDS!”

Opening week at Busch Stadium!

I hadn’t been to a game in a few years and it was so cool to see this; I once worked at Perficient! (a local IT company)

One of his friends got to throw out the first pitch!

Another view of the Perficient Perch

More Cardinal red!

Lots of blue down there (Cubs fans)

We sat with his baseball team and who knew 11 year olds were so skilled in trash-talking! Ha!

Tigers opening week!

Tigers colors!

Playing third base

Happy Spring; hope your week is off to a good start!

I Spy: Big Muddy Boone’s Crossing

And we’re off!

This area offers a short trail; which would be great for very little kids as it is flat terrain and the trail is less than a mile long.

A paper wasp nest

Reminds me of tie-dye

A PSA I can definitely get behind!

Trail

From the map we could tell this part of the trail ran parallel to the river so naturally we blazed our own trail to find it!

We remarked that these woods were like a fairy forest

Checking out a large tree

Our little tree huggers

Magical Woods!

Coming to the river’s edge
