April and everything after

All is well for us in the Big Easy. We've been enjoying crawfish boils, time with our new nephew, beautiful weather, much wedding planning, I've been expanding the garden, and my sister's gorgeous wedding! . . . more on the way . . . 
First crawfish boil of the season—for Easter Sunday.
Just a Sunday evening...
first strawberry in the garden.
I decided to leave it on the plant to fatten up.
But then something ate it!
the party favors I planted for Megan's bridal shower. 
I love the way this crepe looks like lace.
I made crepes with a mushroom filling; they were so delicious.

spring garden

I recently expanded into the remaining garden beds and have planted some new plants for spring. Here's a look at them so far:

yellow squash
a kind of creole tomato

Brandywine tomato
pretty flowers—purple.
cayenne peppers
zebra striped tomato (green)
purple kale
I plan to plant a few more herbs—maybe chives, thyme, mint, basil—my brother tells me if planted along the edges of the garden bed, they deter the bugs from munching too. Once summer hits, I'll need some mulch to help keep the beds moist. 
I love gardening.
