Pictures of the local vegitation


The spiral!
It's my herb garden.  I had an entirely different idea of what it should look like, but the kind of materials to build what I wanted would get expensive.  Still, I like the look of the spiral and hopefully, it will look very nice when things start to grow.  So far, I've planted peppermint, spearmint, lemon mint, borage, basil and mullein.  I've got a few others that I'll be planting when the local temps gets a bit warmer.  It will be awesome!  The lemon mint has begun to sprout.

Some of the local blooms.  The last two weeks were filled with trees that looked like this.  White blooms everywhere.  Now these trees are filled with green leaves.
I took this picture while driving a nearby neighborhood.  I'm sure the owner of the house thought I was crazy. 

I know this is hard to see, but to the right, next to my van mirror, there are tulips of all colors blooming.  They are so beautiful.  I couldn't get a better picture, because once again, I was driving and there was a car behind me.

The peas growing in the garden.

OK, like I've said, I'm not a photographer.  In fact, our camera needs it's battery recharged, but I can't find the recharger.  Things are still getting moved around and situated in the house.  It takes time to get the furniture just right.  I know where the recharger was, but I moved it because I needed to put a piece of furniture in front on the plug.  I remember thinking to myself that I need to put this recharger somewhere obvious so I can find it again.  I guess I didn't follow my own advice well.

The search is on!

I'm so glad you're getting to enjoy some "green" again. I know you've missed it.
