A Little Bit Greener

little things to help make the world a better place

spring=green (among other things)

It’s springtime in Texas. That means everything is super green and vibrant. It also means we’ve had a lot of rain the last week—and the tornado sirens went off Saturday night. (Thanks for that heart attack…The sirens lasted about two minutes, then died away. It wasn’t raining. The wind wasn’t blowing. Basically, no weather was happening at the time.) As a result,except for my mint plants, my little garden is flourishing. The mint plants happen to be located on a shelf under the roof overhang high above, so I have to water them by hand. And I kind of forgot for a couple of days.

When I got home from work yesterday, I went out there to check on things.

Cherry tomatoes seem to be happy—I’m up to five green ones.

A different strawberry plant is now blooming (Please excuse my shoddy picture-taking skills.).

The cucumber plants are now blooming like crazy!

And so is the zucchini!

Spending a few minutes in my little garden after a long day at work really lifts my spirits.
