I love this time of year. The peaches are almost ripe. Kevin can’t wait, me making peach cobbler soon. The herbs are great for sauces and other recipes. The peppers just love the heat in the greenhouse. My sunflowers are in full bloom in the raised beds. But today, I also harvested the last tomato, before I cut the plants down in the greenhouse. They had to make room for zucchini, corn, and okra. I have to see, how well they will do. But it is worth trying it. So far the seedlings do very well.
Every year, I love the sunflowers in our garden. It’s a must to sow some for each Summer season.
Baby bell peppers … they love the heat in the greenhouse.
The last tomato, before I’ve got rid of the plants tonight.
Kevin can’t wait, me making peach cobbler from the fresh peaches for all of us.
Another night and morning with Thunderstorms came through North Texas, today. Kevin and I can’t really do anything, we planned for the backyard, this weekend. But the weather didn’t stop me to shoot more photos of the moisture, that was still left on the plants in frontyard and the backyard.

The warm and the rainy days help the garden to progress very quickly. Flora and Fauna are flourishing. Our Meyer Lemon tree has a lot of flower buds; and we have a first blossom. The tomatoes are growing fast. Planting them on a good layer of compost did the trick. The peach tree is full with fruits. I can’t wait for July to come, so I can harvest them.

We’ve got some big tomato plants, already.
I love the succulents, Kevin gave me for our Anniversary! ❤

A little Bewick’s Wren made its home in the nestbox outside of Katelynn’s window. She loves it, when the wren wakes her up with a beautiful song every morning. The Blue Jays are very pleased, how the raised beds come along. The birds did their part of growing the beds as well. Lots of seeds turned into seedlings. In Summer, they will enjoy a Sunflower “jungle”.
We have a Bewick’s Wren building a nest in the birdhouse in front of Katelynn’s bedroom window.
The Blue Jay is happy with the garden.
The Northern Mockingbird sits on the fence and sings the most beautiful songs of Spring.
The bird feeders are always refilled in our backyard.
This is probably one of the last opportunities to photograph the blossoms of our peach tree this year. Some flowers have lost their paddles, and show signs of peach growth. This evening was great for photos. The sun was at the right angle and reflected the perfect amount of light on the peach tree.

I love this time of the year. It gets warmer; the trees grow back their leaves; the garden starts to grow all kind of vegetables, herbs, and fruit plants; the wildlife gets ready for preparing the nurseries for their young ; and the girls can stay longer outside, because the sun sets much later.
