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.
