A couple of weeks ago I borrowed this book from a friend and have hardly been able to put it down. Its a collection of essays by Sharon Lovejoy who is my all time favorite garden writer. She writes about living with nature in the garden and after reading her essay on moles I actually like them now. And wasps! I won't be as afraid of them now as I was. As Sharon says, I will still have a cautionary respect for them from afar but but I won't dislike them as much. I would highly recommend this book to anyone. She also has a wonderful blog that you can find on my sidebar.
This is some chive vinegar I made after reading Lemon Verbena Lady's Herb Garden blog entry from a couple of days ago. Isn't that a beautiful color? That's after only a few days. Her blog it also on the sidebar.
Here are the promised pictures of the new dogwoods that we planted yesterday. I am so excited to have them here. The whole front looks so different. And now I have more room for perinnials. Can there ever be enough? (Room or perennials?)
Here are what the early blooms on the dogwoods look like. They are going to be really nice against the gray house. Since they are just starting to bloom we will get to enjoy them this year.
So, have a great afternoon and ta ta for now!
