Spring continues!

Spring continues to roll in here in Raleigh!

The Redbuds are blooming!

  
And the Persian lilacs

  
And the German irises are budding

  
And the oxalis are coming up!

   
I have planted seeds in the vegetable garden for lettuce, arugula, and basil but I am having issues with squirls and birds digging through the soil! More on that later.

On a sad note, Gus, the pitt bull/ black lab mix I adopted in 2009 and who is in so many picture here and on Instagram has been diagnosed with lung cancer. He is having a consultation next week at North Carolina State University Vet School so be expecting an update later…

  1. I’m so sorry to hear about Gus. Pets are such an important part of a family.

  2. Poor Gus. I hope he has an easy time of it. I never even knew that dogs could get lung cancer.

    Sorry to hear about Gus. He looks like such a noble beast. no iris blooms in my garden yet — can’t wait for those! Are oxtails the same thing as shamrocks? I didn’t know they can survive the winters in Raleigh.
