Day And Night

Today was another wonderfully sunny day so I spent the afternoon weeding the pea patch.

The peas look great this year.....but they aren't as tall as they usually get, and one variety is blooming already. I wonder if it's because I hadn't added any lime up until today? Oh well, the lime will take effect soon and the plants look really lush and healthy.

One of my favorite times to walk in the garden is at night. It's so still and everything looks so BIG and LUSH and ALIVE. Sometimes I feel like the plants are watching me, like they are wild and .....well, I can't really explain it.

 This is what I push past to get into the hutch to feed the ducks.....

When I head out the door at night to put the ducks in I always tell Mr. Adams, "If I'm not back in a half an hour, come looking for me."
