Because some of you who read my post yesterday were enquiring about the taste and how to prepare fiddleheads, I've checked it up online and I have found this site that may answer your questions.

You may have to type the address as for some reason  blogger can't seem to find the site after I fixed my error. I had put a p instead of a m and still it won't work unless I type it in.

The daffodils are finished and the Leopard bane is in bloom.

this section of my backyard taken from the back of the garage. My son's unfinished shed in the back and my broken trellis sitting against the hedge.  The shed was supposed to be moved but is still there.

Another shot to the right from the same location. This is a raised area and there are rock steps that goes to the patio down below. My huge maple tree had to be cut last year and the stump is still visible in the flower bed  near the shed. The cracked pavement needs repairs because weeds love to grow in those cracks. Oh how I miss my big shade tree. Last evening I've started to put a border along the vegetable garden as it's difficult to know where the garden starts and the green starts and the grass makes it way in the garden. It's a big job but I'll tackle a little bit at a time.

Another view of my weedy vegetable garden taken from  the raise driveway. The middle section of the garden never got finished weeding last fall as we got some snow and they all went to seed early this spring. I pulled the weeds out yesterday .

This is  the end of the rock garden at the end of the driveway. This is a long flower bed that runs all the length of my driveway. These are Leopard Bane that I planted last spring. They are just starting to bloom  along with the dandelions and my Mother of Thyme is spilling on the driveway.

Another flowerbed on the south side of the house. There is a lot of painting thsat needs to be done.
One of my hosta is starting to open up at last. I have lots of Hostas. That's my post for today. It's raining and I don't feel like working so I think that I'll take it easy today and do things inside.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.  Have a great weekend and try to rest too.  JB
