Fresh summer herbs…yum! One of my greatest joys is being able to grow, harvest, and enjoy herbs straight from the garden. My herbs are doing very well this year! I have already savored them fresh sprinkled on a big, juicy tomato and in a garden salad. I have also made pesto with dried herbs mixed with olive oil. So tasty!
It’s tulip time! Tulips are my favorite flower! They only bloom for about a month and I am always sad to see them go in late spring. Cut tulips are also short lived, but through trial and error I have discovered four easy tips to make tulips last longer and I am happy to share them with you!
In my previous post I shared these lovely white tulips that I received for my birthday. Anytime I have fresh tulips I like to make them last as long as possible. Over the years I have found a few little tricks to keep them around the house for a few extra days.
Hello Spring! Today it was 80 degrees here in Eastern Kentucky and just a brief stroll around the yard had me dreaming spring gardening dreams! I am now ready to start making plans for some changes in the landscape that will take place later this spring and early summer. My thyme, oregano and mint is already growing rapidly and filling the March air with a delightful herbal fragrance. Even some of my succulents have survived one of the mildest winters we have had on record. There are a few daffodils left, and dainty grape hyacinths are popping up beside them too. Everything is greening up and gardening time will be here before we know it! I have some ideas for what I would like to change in the landscape this year but I thought it might be nice to take a look at some older pictures for inspiration.
