Here is my "kitchen" garden, filled with oregano, thyme, basil, dill, sage, parsley, chives, and rosemary.

My tomato garden, not quite complete, half filled with several varieties of heirloom tomatoes. The plants themselves smell like fresh tomatoes!

On a day such as yesterday, how can one NOT hang clothes on the line?

I call this one "GIRL WITH DOG". Found them at a garage sale a few years ago. I like having "surprises" in my garden. Little bits of this and that to come across unexpectedly.

My newest acquisition...French Lilac "Michael Buchner". Am uncertain as to where to place him. At first I thought up against the clothesline, but on second thought, maybe up closer to the house, so we can enjoy his incredible fragrance.

This week promises beautiful, sunny days, so garden work is a given for me. We have not had a Memorial Weekend in which rain was not a part of the forecast in years, so we will take full advantage of the incredible weather, and get much accomplished!
Pin It!
