Gardens are lovely distractions
Here's a look at our garden a month ago. We had just planted most of our seeds. The biggest plants then were herbs that came up on their own: sage and chives. The Mexican oregano went wild - I had to transplant it elsewhere.
Look at it now! We're eating lettuce, radishes and swiss chard. We're looking forward to lots of tomatoes, basil for pesto, peppers and zucchini. I need to get the tomato cages out before they get out of control.
The flowers have been lovely this year too. I just planted more lillies and a rosebush. Look at how the front flower garden is doing....it's taking a little time away from quilting but it's inspiring in its own way. Shown here are coneflowers, larkspur, red yarrow and a few asiatic lillies in the back. I can't wait for the bee balm to bloom.
