Hello!

I'm a plant noob who is always grateful for advice. 💚

Some of my interests are





Pleased to meet you!

Curlew update. They have moved again today, out on to the grass. I put the 2x teleconverter on my 400mm lens to get some nice closeups.

Spring check-in. Took the wire off the bed, and combed through all the leaves, looking for ANYTHING that wasn't saffron and weeding it out if that was the case. This is when it's imperative to get out any grass runners that might be trying to start.

The leaves are still alive but dying back slowly and once they are all brown, I will leave them in place and cover them with compost.

Not entirely sure how Violet manages to be comfortable with her bottom hanging off the deck like that!

every time i think, "wow, that's a nice big, well developed leaf," it goes and puts out an even bigger, more developed looking leaf. you go!!

i found this super cool lil piece of lichen today with really prominent apothecia (fungal reproductive structures)!

From 2015: This particular variety of crocus is seen mostly in the Pacific Northwest. 😉
