The unusually mild winter we had this year, means that our garden is farther along than usual for this time of year. Our garden in May, looks as far along as it usually does in July. This weekend, we even ate some of our first tomatoes for breakfast.
We had a nice BBQ with friends on Sunday, so we spruced the place up a bit. I thought I would share some photos before we messed it up again.
I filled in some bare spots in our succulent pot by our front door. Our front door faces Southwest and gets CRAZY sun and heat in the summer. The only thing I can keep alive out there is succulents. But that's okay, because I love them!
This is where my husband and I spent yesterday afternoon. Our daughter was off playing at the neighbor's house, so we spent a quiet hour (or two) with some martinis and our books. It was lovely. I put the chairs in a new place and it's apparently the side of the bird superhighway. The birds whiz by right in front of us as they head to our bird feeder.
Our herb garden is growing strong. I added lemon balm this year. I'm interested in growing and using more healing herbs. If you can recommend your favorite healing herbs or any resources about them, please share!
We moved our tomatoes this year. They are tucked into a planter where we grow lavender. I don't know if it's the increased sun or the fact that the lavender attracts lots of bees, but we are getting a lot more tomatoes this year. Yay!
All in all, we are quite pleased with our garden is growing. How's yours?
