April Garden Update

I have been busy busy busy in the garden, hence there haven’t been many blogs the last month. The pile of dead grass is gone and the space leveled. The freesias and plum tree are done blooming for the year, but there are so many beautiful and exciting things happening in the rest of the yard I don’t mind too much. Since it is almost bed time here, I am just going to get right to the photos.

Seeded Red Table Grapes
