My Yard My Ruby World

I like to Document the Changes over the years
and then take another when all is growing more

this red bush in the middle is almost prettier from far away

but the color is lovely

these are new Salvia I like the tall ones I haven't decided on these yet

this little bird feeder is one of those rusty things I love

I think everyone should have a potted red geranium to make them smile

this is my favorite new addition

who knew this poor scraggly rose in my side yard could produce...

such beauty

oops this is the neighbors But sweeet

My hubby's 6x 12 new garden

My ballerina bush is putting out legs

and thee sweet little blooms

our onion patch -how do you know when to pull them?

the tomato spot

herbs waiting on the potting bench

They finally are turning red and the--

birds noticed before I did:(

The flowers are true rubies, the perfect accompaniment to any yard! The strawberries look divine, so at the very least the birds were quite happy!

I love seeing your garden! Too bad about the birds seeing the strawberries first. I bet it was a robin. :)

I love your garden and your flowers are gorgeous. The onions - well, how close did you plant them together and are they bulbing onions? My grandfather always had his starting out close together and would thin them for green onions. He usually let the grow till the bulbs were 2"-3" diameter. Good luck.

And happy Ruby Tuesday. Here's mine.

Very nice journey through time. I have a few things that through the year have given my joy.
The birds love the berries in the yard.

Basil, and strawberries are my favorite. Maybe taste sens is prevailing concerning me, more than the view sens.
