in the garden

June 04, 2009

What's in garden? Glad you asked!

Right outside the kitchen is where I grow most of my herbs. There's sage and thyme, tarragon and rosemary, chives and oregano. Convenient!

Next, there's these nice blackberry bushes growing over the fence from our neighbor's yard. Thanks, neighbor! We'll pick berries every morning in a few weeks.
Bee activity this AM: Very Busy!

These giant white nicotiana plants stand 7 feet tall. They re-seed and appear outside our bedroom door every spring. Their evening fragrance is beautiful and most often it's nice enough to have our door open, and then, well, it's a little bit of heaven going to sleep.

  1. You have a green thumb! I wish I had a nice chef's Garden like yours but have had to settle for visiting farmer's markets instead. Too many gardening issues to overcome.

    Drifting off to sleep with your window open and the garden's fragrance wafting in sounds like a slice of heaven!


You make my day when you make a comment!
