My backyard is full of possibilities.  It's also full of plants starved for love and attention.  After some advice from my mom, I figured out that I have some gems.

Garlic in my garden

berry bush in my garden

strawberries in my garden

I also planted a few things already which were provided by my mom's abundant supply.

White bleeding hearts

The kids love helping out...

Weeding the plant with baby's help

...and I love it when they do.

  1. What a find! Strawberries!!

    The first one may be chives or wild onions. We have both in our yard. The chives were provided by my sweet mother-in-law, the wild onions, well, I dig them out every chance I get.

    Enjoy your new yard!

    1. I think you are right- my mom did say chives. She was telling me what I can do with the purple flowers, but for the life of me, I can't remember what. The garlic must be the boring plant growing next to it. LOL

    2. If you remember about the purple flowers, let me know. I only knew about the "leaves".

  2. what fun! It's always nice to have backyard edibles. Makes e feel like I'm saving money!

  3. Yep those are definitely chives; my mom always grew those. They could be garlic chives :). I love bleeding hearts; I wish they bloomed longer!
