Barb’s Garden

OK, it could be Ollie’s garden, but I really think it’s Barb’s garden.

Barb – You planted such a nice garden and all your plants look great.  As I was walking around the colony, I saw how nice everything looked and thought it a shame that you don’t get to see your lovely garden in the spring of the year.  So, here are the highlights.

I don’t know what these are, but they caught my eye with the lovely small blossoms and the strongly patterned leaves.

I’m not sure what this is, either, but I love the red stems.

And, staring me right in the face were these morel mushrooms.  Sorry, Barb, but I couldn’t leave these alone.  They would not have been any good by the time you got up here, so I picked them.  They were delicious!  Thanks.

So, thank you, Barb, for your lovely garden.  I hope you enjoy it all summer long.
