Compass Point

Its finally Spring in Missouri and
Grandma's iris are in full bloom.

There are beds of them scattered
through the garden - 
"Audra'a Iris Garden".

And in keeping with living in the country
we have not only flowers (food for the
eyes and the soul), but also vegetables.
Our friend Jeff doesn't have room for a 
large garden at home so we trade space 
for veggies.  
He's got the garden tilled and prepped
for planting.

And while Jeff's garden grows veggies to can and freeze,
we plant smaller gardens on the deck.  
These are bags of potting soil with holes 
poked in the bottom sitting on milk
crates.  One is planted with lettuce and
one with Swiss Chard (Pep's favorite0

And, of course we can't survive without herbs, 
Rosemary, thyme, oregano and basil.
I planted the basil from seeds and it's not up yet 
but any day now!!!!
I just love Spring.

And while we're waiting for the basil to come up, 
lets go see what the others have done with
Brigette's block.

See you next week and
Stay Safe.


  1. Beautiful garden ! I like the idea for seedlings in sacks of potting soil. Greetings from Poland !

  2. I'm in IL and am so happy too for Spring to finally be arriving. Of course, lately we've had so much rain and it really hasn't been all that warm .... yet! But the heat will come and we will be grateful for shade. Thank you for the trip around your yard. The fabrics you used in the block are gorgeous.

  3. I just love your irises! Favorite flower
