Pictures of Home

The next best thing to being home and seeing the signs of spring is being able to see pictures of home. Several good friends have volunteered to send pictures of the garden. Tom of Soul of the Garden have been showing off his magnolia, which is in full bloom. In Ohio (where is it still snowing), my magnolia buds are still tightly bound. The daffs used to line a side walk, however, with a new addition, and a stone wall, the daffs are just in rows--decided let them be. The last picture is the side of the house, the trellis and arbor both have roses growing on them, and junipers a solid wall.

Springtime in Iraq

Even here in Iraq, you can tell that it is spring. Some of what I called scrub trees are leafing out--that fresh green color of spring. In front of the chapel, there is a postage size of lawn and it is now emerald. Another sign of spring here, is the birds. They are calling to each other and building nests for future event. Even without tulips, daffs and robins, it is spring in Iraq.

Gardening in Iraq

Welcome to my first attempt. I am here trying to work on my tan and wondering how to get something green to grow. The hardest part about gardening here is trying to find plants or seeds. However, I am trying to overcome that (legally of course).
