plants in the front yard

Spring has hit in the front yard. The plants are coming back to life, and starting to grow into each other. Having a full, green flower garden is always the dream, right?

The rock garden is filling in nicely. I love the way the greenery grew around the pot. It makes me glad I left it right there all winter. We just added the little flower to the pot for the spring.

Our little herb garden is still going strong! The sage and rosemary have started to get very cozy together.

And the mint is spreading like wildflower. I just read that mint is a creeper, and should be contained in a pot, but oh well! Hopefully it realizes that rock boundary was an actual serious suggestion.

What are you growing this time of year?

hello there

I am trying to remember the last time I grew something from a seed. I think it has to be before I left for college. We would have a garden every summer, and we would grow peas and carrots, and all kinds of things from seeds. But I forgot how thrilling it is when the tiny green leaves emerge their sleepy heads from the depths of a pot of dirt. I can’t wait to watch you grow, little sprouts.
