Garden Update and Hummingbird Dance

Good morning and welcome to my garden where life is growing and hummingbirds are courting! Here’s the view of the garden beds from above. Herbs and flowers are at their peak and edibles are in various stages of growth. Bush beans are flourishing and…

Roses and Herbs and Bees in The Garden

Planting with Benji

Yesterday we visited Flower World to buy Benji a new bed. Or perhaps bath tub. I decided to borrow it to carry home the plants I bought while I was there. I bought the plants to fill up the bucket I got at a…
