What’s Emerging in the May Garden?

I’m glad you asked! Let’s start with the herbs. My herbs are mostly decorative, though I could use them for cooking if I only remembered. First up are the chives. It won’t be long before the buds open and attract bees into their blossoms.… Continue Reading “What’s Emerging in the May Garden?”

I woke to an overcast day inside and out – it was time for my booster shot. My dear husband offered to drive me there and I appreciated the moral support. All went well though I expect some soreness tomorrow if my last shot… Continue Reading “Tuesday’s Rewards – Close Up on Hummingbirds”
