Herbs and other stuff.
I'm not even going to comment on the weather so lets just get past that! I had a lovely evening all to myself last night as himself had gone to the city for overnight. I watched a chick flick, had some wine and some finger food and had quite an enjoyable evening.
Yesterday while I was cleaning up some of the gardens I thought to myself that I should take a few pictures of some of the perennial herbs that I grow. I've been growing them for years and they are still coming up strong.
A warning to all who enter.
Ladies Mantle. When raindrops are on the leaves of this plant, they look like jewels.
Crown Vetch. Very invasive. It has lovely ball like pink flowers in late summer that makes me forgive their wandering ways.
Bee Balm. Spectacular when in bloom.
Angelica. Not the best picture as it's difficult to make out among other stuff. They've been re-seeding every year so I have more than a few around.
St. John's Wort.
We went to a flea market this past weekend and I picked up this delightful little bowl. Only one dollar.
There seems to be a lack of bees, butterflies and dragon flies this summer. I suspect it's the weather that's causing this. Lots of Blue jays back and forth though.
I think this may be two young ones.
A blinding light just came through the window. I do believe that the sun broke through. I'm off outside!
