A Mother's Day Poem

on mother's day we celebrate
this lucky, special, twist of fate

that made you what you are to me
you gave me life, you let me be

you're my mother, I'm your son
my lucky fate, that you're the one!

it's not enough, but let me say
have a happy mother's day!

Sugar Snap Peas, First Roses, Seedlings MIA and The Great Slug Wars

More sugar snap peas in the ground, two weeks after planting the first wave.  I have a single shoot coming up.

Every rose bush has a handful of roses in bloom.  Late, maybe it's the temps in the 40's.  Brrrrr!

Parsley planted several weeks ago has still not made an appearance.  Chervil...maybe.  Or maybe those are nascent weeds!

A f*cking squirrel at the tops of every one of my sunflowers.  Or maybe it was a pill bug.  I don't like to use poison in the garden, but I did put a little slug and snail bait.  It's supposed to be safe in veggie gardens.  Normally I'd have regrets about this sort of thing, but, but, but, was my sunflowers!
