Garden by the Barn

I have been trying to get my gardens ready for summer. I always seem to be adding mulch when the weather is hot. We are unseasonably warm here today - 95. Quite hot for April. I got the mulch in a few weeks ago, before I got sick and I didn't get to finished decorating. So today, while my husband is in Italy, I decided to finish them.

Plumeria Blooms

When you are under the weather, there is nothing like some sunshine to cheer you up. I have been fighting this bronchitis for over a week and frankly I am tired of feeling bad and coughing. The coughing is the worst part. Yuck!

Although the sun has been shining, it is these lovely plumeria blooms that are brightening up my day. I grew this plant from a cutting and now it is blooming. I am so excited.

Chicken and Kale Soup

We love Kale in our house and I am always looking for recipes that have Kale in them. When I saw this soup recipe, I knew I had to try it. Not only was it good, but it is low in calories (279), sugar (2 g) and high in protein (37 g).

Bed Pan Planter

I wasn't on my blog a lot this past week since my daughter was here from California. Now that she has left, we headed out to the yard. There is so much yard work to do. We only have an acre, but there is lots of vegetation, trees, bushes, flowers and nothing stops growing here. We spent some time pruning, cutting and raking. 

I had a chance to work in my gardens that really needed it. I bought this bed pan awhile back - previously posted here.
