It's been a cold April
And so I've not been out in the garden
But this weekend . . .
And I am awaiting the result.
Often in perennial beds, I'll stick a pot of annuals
To insure something is always blooming
I fell in love with these huge creamy marigolds!
And although they are a creamy white,
they still have a marigold fragrance
And in the garden light
A replacement rosemary
It was a hard and cold winter
And I lost this big guy!
But rosemary's don't like cold!
It was about 9 years old
And provided a lot of flavor to a lot of meals
And a lot of sweet treats!
And other herbs I replaced . . .
(I didn't lose it this winter . . . but I've not had luck getting it to reseed)
And some lovage and tarragon
Oh and a new pair of garden gloves
Orange should be easy to find in the garden, don't you think?
The tarragon in the back of one of the herb beds
True French Tarragon, the only kind to plant!
And lovage -- which is a celery flavored herb!
This year, I'll have a whole row of it!
But you can't just plant herbs --
You need flowers!
White geraniums in the Guy Wolfe pots on the patio tables.
Their flowers are so pretty.
And not for me, but for Daughter Sarah
A rose geranium plant -- a "daughter" (or great great great) of one that
I've had "forever" -- at least 25 years!
I love to see the garden "awake" -- from dirty to little plants to a lush garden.
It's Monday and I'm joining Susan at Between Naps On the Porch for Met Monday
