"Then seek your job with thankfulness
and work till further orders,
If it's only netting strawberries
or killing slugs on borders;
and when your back stops aching
and your hands begin to harden,
You will find yourself a partner
in the Glory of the Garden."

Early sampling of the garden
Just a preview...things will get growing with some warmer weather and sunshine! The 10 day forecast for Nikiski is rain, rain, rain however. I'm not sure if the newly-planted Hellebore or Anenome will come back next year, but I'm sure hoping they do. This is the shadiest part of my garden.
Red Anenome and Hellebore
A little angel sits beneath a wild rose, just budding right now. This is oak fern, which grows all over our property. And you can see the wonderful horse tail. Since these have been around for a million years, we just enjoy them. They can become a nuisance, but there's no overcoming them!
Native Oak Fern
Yeah! The pink Yarrow came back, and the 30 new tulips popped up. In between these two are Lily of the Valley, transplanted from our Anchorage property. It will flower any day.
