Spring is here!
Last year it was petunias [and kittens], white and some shades of purples, the years before it was various herbs, parsleysagerosemaryandthyme and some others.
This year I've gone whole hog, so to speak, and planted both flowers and herbs. Marigolds and salvia, mint and oregano, nasturtiums and lavender, and some aloe vera.
I'm --- just barely --- resisting the urge to plant a rock garden. In the aloe vera section of the garden shop were all those cute little furry cactuses and other alien-being looking little succulents, all of them cute as bugs, and all of them pricier than a gallon of hormone-free, antibiotic-free, free-range, locally-grown, organic milk.
I'll let you know later this summer if the glowball is warming or cooling this year.
Oh, and speaking of flowers... here, have a poppy.
