I have spent the last two weekends in the front garden. We have lived in this home for 5 years...this garden is not even close to the garden I left in California. I have had a difficult time finding local growers with offerings that I am accustom to. I was a frequent shopper at Heard's Garden, where the dear sweet Mary Lou would coach me into trying something new....For those of you in the OC, her memorial garden tour is May 1 &2 2010. How I would love to go. I get chill bumps just thinking of the days spent with Mary Lou.
Here is my view under the Dogwood...taking a much needed breather....last weekend we were dealing with record highs in the 80's..this last weekend we were in the 60's...what a contrast!
So how cute is this lady bug docking station for my Iphone...so garden appropriate!
I have waited years for my Lilac's to bloom....worth the wait,but I want MORE!!!
Some garden booty from the herb fair in Concord this weekend. A new trial for the garden this year is Mexican Tarragon, quite the bite! Here is a short list of what will be planted. Sweet Basil, Cinnamon Basil, Mexican Oregano, Lemon thyme, and Lemon Verbena, Chocolate mint, Bay, Tansy, Fever few, Sweet Annie...this one I know I will most likely regret as it can be a pest, but I love the scented wreaths that can be made from it. I like to carry a few twigs in my pockets just to smell.
