Garden Bacchanalia

And Other Remnants Of A Day...

Physically, most of the day was invested downing java at the Hermit's, or/and tinkering in the garden.

METAPHYSICALLY?In the Lakes region.

But the garden time?


There's none more therapeutic.
I was even able, after the morning's steady, gentle rain, to spend some time, sans shirt, stuffing every open [Garden variety] orifice with seed.
I mean, it's Time to sow, nest-ce pas? Spring and all...


And having had such previously good luck filling masonry orifi with garlic...


I went to stuffing again. Update in Thirteen Days...

But man, the day was (and still is, BTW. Only 1900 local. and a good 180 minutes of sunshine left...) way too pretty to gogol inside all the while...

So, onward. Because y'all are some non-internet-using fools on the weekends! Gotta fill the daylight hours with something...

Randomly, kinda (because I'm always scouting, mapping and mentally finagling about where and how I can make the vacant garden spots useful), every empty space in the actual bed was stuffed today.

[I'm loving the imagery. Very seasonal. And sensual. C'est moi, love...]

And many more of the masonry spots filled-- green beans and okra, and more vampire-salve, garlic.

And okra amongst the banana plants along the fence...[Way in the background, left of and behind the birdbath...]

And other garlic EVERYWHERE, even in the front-of-the-house flowerbeds.
Hey-- cloves wanna grow? GROW! GROW!:D

I ain't terra-bashful. Or deficient...

Well, how's about I piece together another blingie-photo or three and post them and we all pretend Cyg had a productive day and move into the second thirty days of Spring's-A-Comin' time, and you comment and tell me how green my thumb is because I figgered out dirt and water and seed make nice greenings...
Sound like a feasible deal?

Cool! :D

Oh! Had One try to sneak up on me:Shady, ain't he? And he was carrying that green bean like a bo...

I call this one 'Watering Time':
And this one: A good night kiss!

Slainte, folks!

Sidhe said...

Ditto. :)

And WOW...that garden is looking truly fantastic. I did not have quite a beautiful a day here. Still chilly up in these here Northern parts, but there was plenty of java, a little World of Warcraft, and lots of homework (five hours worth. Ow!)

And now I'm off to bed.

P.S.

I've loved Snoopy since I was born.

Sidhe...

Having some computer trouble...

Sorry abuot the day... Homework (and math, too?) BITES. Why I never finished H.S.-- never did homework. Schoolwork, at home.
A new kitchen, now THAT'S HOMEwork! :D

Thanks for the words, Lady Sidhe

Lydia said...

Wow! That is looking great Cygnus! They grew so fast. Did you plant lettuce? And they are okay that way? We have so many bunnies, deer and who knows what else around here that there is no way a garden would last without a huge tall fence around it.

HermitUncle! That's funny, I like it :)

You have a great night! Thanks so much for sharing pictures with those of use who can't plant, or can't plant yet.

Hi Lydia! Thanks for stopping in!

I planted bib lettuce and spinach, both from seed, and have eaten both right out of the garden and am still living, so I guess they work ok like that...

Hope your weather is warm and festive right soon, Lady L.!

'See' you tomorrow, I hope! :D

Lydia said...

Bib and spinach are my favorite, We've never attempted lettuce, and never planted from seed. Around mothers day the farms have tons of newly sprouted veggies and this is where we buy the babies from to continue growing. Haven't done it in a few years though, so I enjoy looking at pics of yours. I think we're all going to have to learn or re-learn to plant again.

:)
have a great day Cygnus!

I love bib lettuce. I never got around to planting anything. :( Disappointed but there's always next year. Hopefully then I won't be working quite so much.

Cygnus MacLlyr said...

Tonight there is a HEAD of bib out there! just TOO cool!

Thanks, Lydia!

Wow! Donella typing right over me!
Hi Lady!

I hope you do get to plant some next year.. and work less!

Have a great night!
