My Kentucky Garden Friend With A BIG Appetite!
One of my favorite things to do in the morning is water my flowers and vegetables. It's nice to see everything growing and looking healthy.
I spent most of my adult life as a renter. About 8 years ago I bought my first home. The only gardening I could do was a few flowers in containers on a deck.
That has changed in a BIG way! I now take great pride in working in the flower beds. Seriously, it's free therapy when you have things on your mind.
There are about 30 trees that I have planted also. One pear tree has some of the best pears I have ever eaten. I laugh and tell my friends that I am living off the land!
I added a raised bed this year for vegetables and so far the results have been amazing.
Love having fresh tomatoes, kale, lettuce, spinach, red potatoes, peppers and cucumbers.
Next to harvest will be cantalope and watermelon.
Yesterday, I traded a friend veggies for fresh eggs. She has chickens in her fenced yard right near downtown Lexington.
Out front, there are flowers in the beds and a regular friend there is the "Mo" the Praying Mantis.
He's always in the same spot each day at the top of the clemitis.
These pics were snapped with my iPhone.
I love seeing this guy out there each day. He makes me smile.
Life must be so simple for him in his Kentucky garden.
