Here are few shots of things in the garden that are inspiring me lately. I started growing some veggies from seeds this year. Brussell Sprouts, Eggplant, and Leeks where the only things to actually sprout. Since this photo I have moved them into the little veggie garden that existed when we moved into our house last year.
The fig tree was starting to bloom, until we had it trimmed! Not sure there will be any yummy figs this year, but at least the tree will be happy and healthy!

The nectarine tree has more than doubled in size! It fills with beautiful little pink flowers before the fruits start to develop.

And can someone please tell me how to get rid of these bastard grasshoppers!! They are terrorizing the whole yard!! I hate bugs. Despise them. Fear them! Every time I water I inevitably disturb one and send them into a hoping rage. Which in turn makes me run screaming like a tiny little girl! Its kind of embarrassing! I always end up feeling like an ass! But these things fly at you, you know?
