|Lots of lettuce and a few peas in the back|
|A native perennial garden getting started|
|The salmon berries are already showing life|
|The beginning of my herb garden- basil, lemon balm, chives, perennial sweet peas, yarrow, bee balm. I've since added sage and rosemary.|
So today we were busy out in the yard. It all started because yesterday my husband surprised me with a window box right out our bedroom window. So, of course, today I had to go get flowers for it. I will post a picture of it when we are finished with it. While we were at the nursery, we saw two gorgeous peonies and could not resist. We planted both of those with some Persian buttercups aka Ranunculus. We planted a semi-dwarf Montmorency cherry tree. I've been working on an herb garden- the fencing isn't going to stay that way, but right now that's the only way to keep the dog from laying on it. We found out (from a lovely lady who was gardening next door) that a bush we were thinking of removing is probably a chokecherry, so it will stay. I want to try making chokecherry jelly or jam. I would like to get some chokeberries as well so I can make juice from them. It was a long day, but didn't feel long as we love being out in the yard doing things. It is very satisfying to us. We are tired now, though!
