Yes .. I know .. the deck and bench could really use a lick of paint .. why didn't we listen to our friends when they said do NOT stain or paint .. leave the wood in a natural state .. hum ? .. maybe that is what it is headed for now ?
HERBS !! .. Dave is guarding them, by the way .. he likes to be useful and was totally bored posing in the snow for pictures this winter.
Pretty much the same old same old herbs for me .. because I really LIKE them ! Flat leaf parsley, Tuscan Blue Rosemary (I must have rosemary ! .. it is the law by my own decree .. haha) .. golden thyme .. more for just being pretty .. Dill is another gotta' have it .. the smell is wonderful .. have known it since I was a kid .. Purple sage for pots perhaps .. since I am a purple sage freak .. I go on and on about how tough and beautiful it is .. I haven't found a basil I like yet .. one year it was something like St. Michael's basil .. the most aromatic i have ever had and now the gold standard is encrypted ? in any case .. cooler temps and this rain is a relief .. respite ? .. give my perennial transplants a leg up to survive the heat and humidity that is coming. So .. that is my rain day blurb .. in love with herbs !
