Today was cloudy. There were times where the sun was shining brightly, and others where it went behind a cloud. Then toward late afternoon, darker clouds came in. I love the view of the sky we have behind the barn. Here is what it looked like earlier this evening.
Here were some of the darker clouds out to the east. Look at the tree line. You will see the different trees sending out their buds, blooms or leaves. This is a pretty picture when you look at the big version of it. You can do that by clicking on it.
Here are those peach(?) trees in the chicken area. The blooms are different colors on the different trees.
YIPPEE!!!! Our asparagus is coming up. I need to weed around it and then mulch. I was not too on the ball last fall or this spring.
This is a common weed around here. Someone questioned me via email if this was Self Heal. I was told by a botanist that it was called Heal All, which was a sister plant to Self Heal. I ahve been looking at pictures of both on line and now I am not sure this botanist was correct. =) I will keep looking and let you know.
Well, I got my answer from a comment someone left on the blog. I checked out the link and she was right. I will have to share this with the botanist. =) This weed is called Purple Deadnettle.
