Don't you just love the scent and sight of growing things?
In our corner of the desert,
I have little spots in the front yard that brighten the day.
I love to take my meal and eat outside while the kids play
or have little helping hands take a turn watering the garden.
Small blessings, big happiness!
The hanging basket of petunias and alyssum that I just planted.
There are three across our front windows.
These cute markers where I sowed seeds earlier this month
were made by my nieces and me. Very fun and cheery!
I'm so pleased the blueberry bushes are doing so well.
They'll produce berries next year.
Lavender, lemon verbena, chamomile, and lots of parsley
are just a few of the kinds of herbs in the garden, also recently planted.
I can hardly wait to start using these in my cooking!
Where are your favorite spots in your garden or yard?
