Coming back



Most of the herbs I planted last year came back this spring. They are still in the pots I put them in then.

So for this year, I have Italian oregano, rosemary, parsley, chives, tarragon and lavender. That should be enough herbs for my kitchen.

Or maybe, I should check on the basil and mint on the ground. I might need to add basil and mint.


The rhubarbs are getting huge. Several of them are ready for eating. I found a recipe for a rhubarb custard pie the other day. I am going to have to talk to my husband into making it. He's better at making custards than I am. I don't have the patience. :)

The fence garden is doing well. I don't have to spend much time there. My husband cleaned it out last week.





I finished cleaning out the front flower bed. I got a few pots on the back deck cleaned. I guess I'll get the flowers this weekend to fill up the pots and the bed.

It's that time

We have been dragging our feet when it comes to cleaning the garden and around the yard. Been too busy with work and kids.

It is time to do it though. We have to put some effort to clean and plan out the main garden this coming weekend.

The rhubarb is growing and it is already huge! Next to it, two bushes of black eyed susans are growing, too. Of course, the lilies. ;-) I love planting things only once and have them grow on their own each year. :)

I am working on two knitting and one crocheting projects at the moment. Two are for sales, one for fun.

I am also contemplating making a few palazzo pants for myself. I like to wear something loose and these pants are definitely loose! Since it is loose, I can wear them to pray, which is a bonus.

My daughter has caught the sewing bug. She has been making things from her sewing project book. She made a couple of skirts for herself, with grandma's help. She completed several small hand sewn projects. Here's a couple of what she did.





She did a great job! I'm so proud of her. :)
