I’m attempting to spend August getting reacquainted with my blog and blogging, so here we go!

I spent a good part of Spring planting hundreds of little pots of herbs and flowers, in the sewing room. It’s been fun to see what blooms and grows on the balcony. This summer I’m squeezing herbs in everywhere. I love the smells and the greenery. Some I’m pinching off the flowers to keep the herbs nice for cooking others I’m allowing to bloom. I have basils, thymes, rosemary, marjoram, chervil, chives, mints, sages, and oregenos everywhere. in between I’ve scattered violas and chamomile, zinnias, hyssop, forget-me-nots, pansies, sunflowers….all grown from seed. I did buy some of my herbs but many were also started from seed.

I’m also growing two edibles I’ve never had before, cucamelons and ground cherries!

I hope you enjoy these pictures I took just a few minutes ago..except for the bird, I took that a few days ago.

One thought on “in the garden

  1. So very nice to see you posting again. Your garden looks beautiful and I have never heard of ground cherries – I will have to look into them for next year. Thank you for sharing!
