It was a work-on-the-garden weekend. The raised beds were waiting.
The seedlings were outgrowing their pots.
Annuals and herbs were purchased.
So let the fun begin!
I have fragrantly, soothing dreams of making chamomile or peppermint tea. I will drink it out on the deck from a dainty china cup while reading poetry. And perhaps I will wear a floppy, straw hat…
And while I work on prettying up the back yard…
Latte has her own idea of how a yard should look.
It’s all in a dog’s day.
A few more flowers around the deck.
A ball break with Java
And then it’s on to filling pots at the front of the house.
There are four round tubs that I placed along the retaining wall. I wish I’d had more flowers, something viny to drape, and something to add height. Maybe I’ll add to them later.
Yeah, those bags by the retaining wall are leaves from last Fall that finally made it to the county compost site this weekend. Lesson learned — take leaf bags to compost site right away, before they get water in them and turn into heavy, smelly, breaking bags.
I filled four square tubs on the front steps with more herbs. I’m hoping they get enough sun there.
I think summer is finally here!
