This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. But Skippy always stood by me and was a great friend. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps and garden with me. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees and berry bushes, chickens and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

Not only do I like these photos but I love the way that they are laid out on the page. Wish I had the know-how. I'm lucky if I can just center mine!

Blue birds are great to watch.

I always liked to watch those nature shows. One thing I learned from them, is that the birds that are the most colorful are the males.

Pictures are nice, thank you!

Great pictures! You are a good photographer of nature.

I too am loving all of the birds that are coming out this spring--and also hearing the geese return from migration.
