Been waiting and watching the garden everyday for the asparagus to pop and today was the day. I was able to pick just enough for dinner. This is a purple variety which turns green when cooked and are delicious. I planted a bed (about 6 plants) of asparagus a few years ago and have it for dinner once a week through June.
Also in full bloom in the garden is the Basket of Gold (Yellow Alyssum) perennial I planted last year. This plant is perfect for a border and is very easy to grow. It's iridescent yellow takes your breath away.
