I had my Mother’s Day break­fast out­side this morn­ing in the potager. My gar­den­ing com­pan­ion was one of my Papil­lon babies, Sophie. The com­pany was charm­ing and the view was beautiful.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there.

We have been on a plant­ing orgy around here. Not only is this the time of year when most of the veg­etable seeds and seedlings go into the potager, we have also embarked on a major cam­paign to add more shrubs—particularly flow­er­ing shrubs—to the property.

Sophie and Sarah inspect the veg­etable plant­i­ngs in the potager.

Thank good­ness Harry is a good sport and has a strong back and good endurance. The hard­pan clay soil we have here in South­ern Mary­land makes dig­ging new beds and plant­ing trees and shrubs a major week­end endeavor.

The wis­te­ria on the fence is get­ting there. The peonies won’t be far behind.

And I’m so tired, that’s it. The end.
