Backyard Pictorial

Magnolia continues to bloom.

We believe this is a squirrels nest up in the magnolia tree.

We will have a fresh from the garden salad tomorrow for lunch and the tomatoes I started from seed are finally growing well.

Scott pulling a few weeds in the squash and cucumber bed.

I only have 2 bell pepper plants left and this tomato was a volunteer.

Volunteer tomato plant - tomatoes starting to turn red.

Yellow squash

Butternut Squash - OUR favorite squash - volunteer plant. There are also mustard greens coming up in this same bed.
The white you see in the garden is shredded paper - junk mail and other unwanted paper.


  1. Hi Becky,

    The pattern arrived TODAY :) :) :) Thank you :) :) :)

    I can't wait to see those magnolias when they're in full bloom. They'll be so beautiful :) :)

    Yellow squash...any squash, really, is a favorite in my home, too :) :)

    Have a great weekend. Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

  2. Incredible garden good idea with the paper. I love Magnolias I only seen them once in Vancouver. B

  3. Do you ever have issues with the paper blowing away? I think that is a swell idea, but I am concerned about our winds.

    And aren't volunteer plants the best?!

  4. Your garden is fabulous! I'll bet you can't wait to harvest -- can I come for dinner? ;) Thanks for taking so many pictures and sharing them. ~Laura
