My Garden

Truth be told, I am a terrible in the garden. I don't remember to water, don't like to weed, and in general do not have a green thumb. I do, however, enjoy looking at a beautiful garden. I enjoy my herbs, roses and love when the lavender fills the garden. My kitchen at the house looks on to the backyard and this time of year the garden is starting to take shape. Thanks goodness I have two gardener's at the house to keep things looking good. My husband is an avid gardener. He really gets satisfaction from starting seeds, watching things grow and then harvesting it. My other gardener is my 10 year old son. You know he has a passion for it when he asks you to buy him a blueberry plant for almost a year. Yes, we finally got him one and I can't wait to start see the fruits of his labors.

The above pictures are from the backyard. Lavender, basil, beans and a recently purchased azalea.
